             .LRN ('DOT-LEARN') CONSORTIUM FORMED

Several universities (including MIT, Heidelberg University, and the
University of Sydney) have gotten together and announced the formation
of the .LRN Consortium, which is dedicated to the development of open
source educational software. More information is available at

http://dotlrn.org/

Just to be clear: this seems to be a consortium to support and promote
a particular suite of open source educational software:

       ".LRN is an open source application suite
        for learning and research communities."
