Thanks Fiona.  Officially our JISC project does not start until Thursday 
but I will circulate a proposal of how we would like to involve WebPA 
and its community to this list very soon.

The basic intention is to use WebPA as an example of a tool which is 
external to the VLE and identify how users would like to see it being 
better connected to a VLE to improve its use for both staff and 
students.  These integrations, along with similar ones for other tools, 
would be built in a standard way as part of the IMS development of their 
LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability) specification and the resulting 
code contributed to your community.  Or at least, that is in essence 
what we propose and hope that it will find support from the users of 
WebPA.  But more later!

Stephen
