How do you organize large numbers of people for a common purpose? For millenia, the answer has been some sort of hierarchical organization. An army, or a feudal system topped with a king. To reach global scale, these hierarchies propagated customs and codes for behavior: laws, religions, ...

Demo of Browsercast, which lets you link a deck.js HTML5 slideshow with an audio voiceover (as an alternative to video screencasts): https://github.com/twitwi/deck.browsercast.js
The Japanese wrote haikus... Shakespeare wrote sonnets... And we... write PowerPoint. A lot of people blame PowerPoint for bad presentations... ...but that's like blaming fountain pens for bad poetry. The real problem with tools like PowerPoint... ...is that they aren't web-friendly.

We are talking about doing some e-learning at my workplace.
We will need to do videos and some testing systems.
Is there an open source solution for this kind of thing? Can it be integrated with something like Moodle, say?
I would be interested in people with experience in this field.

Uses the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) software, part of the Open Source Physics project: http://www.opensourcephysics.org/index.cfm
 
"The EJS Electric Field: What is Wrong? Package is a collection of models for electrostatics with errors intentionally built into each model.  Users can move charges around and see the force, observe the electric field generated by charge configurations, and observe the motion of test particles in electric fields to try to identify the errors in the simulation.

As a teacher, I strongly recommend this free app for Android:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.labeldroid.cuaderno.lite&hl=en
It’s a very useful version of the classic Teacher’s Notebook, with multiple tools, and a handy management of daily tasks, more complete and quicker than traditional paper agendas. 
The team of uni researchers who developed this app is also very helpful and open to comments and improvements, and that’s one of the reasons this app is gaining users everyday both in its English and Spanish versions.  
Here’s manual to explore all its possibilities: http://goo.gl/My5AMl
This LITE version is completely functional, and it is only limited to two g...
