Interview with Moodle’s Martin Dougiamas

In preparing for an interview on Moodle (A LMS licensed under the GNU License) I found this interview with martin Dougiamas, creator of Moodle at Steve Hargadon’s site (http://www.stevehargadon.com/2006/10/interview-with-martin-dougiamas.html)

It provides an excellent background into this LMS.  We’ll be publishing an interview with some E-Learning practitioners who use Moodle in their work soon.
