Pebber Brown my guitar teacher appoched me, Frank Thoeny, about developing an educational LMS website. I was unsure of what platform we could use. Thinking about what I can do and how I can show some of my talents, I decided to use PERL as the foundation to develop the website. The first challenge was to come up with a module for logging in to the secure area of the site. This first hurdle was over come by going to CPAN and finding a module.
After such a long deliberation and I discovered the amount of work that was involved we both opted for an existing LMS technology. Moodle was chosen based on it’s popularity at the University of La Verne. However I kept the PERL Modules that I started developing as possibly something I could use in the future.
