Re: BP in Education…
I’m currently contemplating moving a network of educators to the BP framework as we currently use WordPress.
My only problem is that BP is fairly limited at the moment in terms of sharing.
We need groups to have file sharing capabilities as well as blog post updates appearing within them – two things which it currently doesn’t do.
Ideally these would run out of the box.
But it looks like I might have to magically pull some time out of my hat and start coding some plugins – not my ideal.
Another alternative we looked at was Elgg… it has the feature set we require but I find it really clunky to use, navigate and customize. I much prefer the ‘design’ of BP and WordPress.
