+Moodle documentation
+--------------------
+
+If you want to translate this documentation into another language,
+I would suggest that you:
+
+ 1) don't include English versions of the files in this directory
+ because they will be used automatically anyway if it is missing
+ from your language pack.
+
+ 2) translate them in this order (starting with the important ones):
+
+ MOST IMPORTANT
+ |-------------------
+ |
+ | - install.html
+ | - upgrade.html
+ |
+ | -----------------
+ |
+ | - teacher.html
+ | - module_files.txt
+ |
+ | -----------------
+ |
+ | - intro.html
+ | - features.html
+ | - release.html
+ |
+ | -----------------
+ |
+ | - developer.html
+ | - cvs.html
+ | - future.html
+ |
+ | -----------------
+ |
+ | - license.html
+ | - credits.html
+ |
+ |-------------------
+ LEAST IMPORTANT

+
+<P>Moodle is an active and evolving work in progress.</P>
+<P>I've been working on it, in some way or other, for several years. It started
+ in the 90's when I was webmaster at <a target=_top href="http://www.curtin.edu.au/">Curtin University
+ of Technology</a> and a system administrator of their WebCT installation. I
+ encountered many frustrations with the WebCT beast and developed an itch that
+ needed scratching - there had to be a better way (no, not Blackboard :-)</P>
+<P>I also know a lot of people in schools and smaller institutions (and some big
+ ones!) who want to make better use of the Internet but don't know where to start
+ in the maze of technologies and pedagogies that are out there. I've always hoped
+ there would be a Free alternative that such people could use to help them move
+ their teaching skills into the online environment.</P>
+<P>My strong beliefs in the unrealised possibilities of Internet-based education
+ led me to complete a Masters and then a PhD in Education, combining my former
+ career in Computer Science with newly constructed knowledge about the nature
+ of learning and collaboration.</P>
+<P>Since then Moodle has progressed through several very different prototypes
+ until the release of version 1.0 upon a largely unsuspecting world on
+ August 20, 2002 and a steady series of improved releases since then.
+<P>I've been using it in several courses and find it an
+ extremely usable and reliable tool for building high-quality online courses
+ - others are reporting the same. Given the context in which it's been designed,
+ it works particularly well for smaller institutions, or for smaller, more intimate
+ classes.</P>
+<P>When compared to the big commercial tools such as WebCT or Blackboard I think
+ it still falls short in some areas (such as scalability and standards support),
+ but it comes out ahead in many others (see <a href="features.html">Features</a>).
