Write a module - then teach them how to use it

Stephen Downes posted a blurb on eLML.

This looks interesting. It's an XML framework for creating e-learning content in Eclipse. It supports a interesting array of output formats (e.g. xhtml, PDF, ODF, IMS, and SCORM).

It's intriguing to imagine a certain class of subject matter experts using it to provide e-learning content to unleash the teacher in us all.

Is it difficult to imagine documentation as educational material, perhaps turning it into SCORM packages for an LMS?

I'm not sure I like the tight integration with Eclipse, but some readers might consider that a feature.

In case you're interested, the developer have plans for a WYSIWYG web interface in late 20071.
