UPDATE: Thanks to a quick email to the editor, the article inaccuracy has been fixed! Great job, THE Journal!!
I was thrilled to be notified that an article featuring free, open source solutions to educational problems had been featured in THE Journal. Regrettably, I have to correct some factual inaccuracies in the article because while they are “in the ballpark of truth,” they are not accurate and I would hate for some things I am not responsible for–even because, or perhaps, especially because, they are positive–to me:
- “Guhlin also set up a Red Hat Linux server after finding that the district’s Windows server could not handle the latest version of Joomla and kept crashing. The new server was set up with Apache, MySQL, PHP, and Joomla.”
This assertion is inaccurate. Although I have set up Windows servers that run Moodle and other solutions, it was the work of another Technology Department Director who set up a Red Hat Linux server. Members on my staff setup the Mac server, although I have worked to maintain it, as have others.
