Hi,

Several classes at the University of Illinois have used Greenstone for
teaching. One class has students build collections and modify only with
the collect.cfg file. Some of the group projects were very good.

I have taught small 2-3 sessions on metadata and digital libraries using
Greenstone, handling the plugins myself as needed.
