Gibbon is the school platform which solves real problems encountered by educators every day. I have been leading the development of Gibbon since its inception in October 2010. For more information, please visit https://gibbonedu.org.
We are exploring curriculum mapping programs and would be interested in any information abut Gibbon. We currently run Atlas but are exploring alternativesl.

Ross, thanks for your enquiry. I will email you some details later on today.
I am discovering gibbonedu and I am very disapointed. I would like to find and help to start and I dont find it.
How can I create one hundred children ?
what do we have to do first, second, third …
Please if you have e pdf file that explain all this, so let me know what is the best order to create students, create matters ?,…
Didier, I am sorry to hear that you are disappointed. Please do keep in mind Gibbon is a volunteer-driven solution, which we give away for free. We try and do a lot with very limited resources.
If you follow the Installation Guide (https://gibbonedu.org/support/administrators/installing-gibbon/), please then take a look at the Getting Started Guide (https://gibbonedu.org/support/administrators/getting-started-with-gibbon/). In terms of importing users into the system, please go to Admin > User Admin in Gibbon’s main menu, and the select Sync Users in the right hand menu.
Good luck, and please stay in touch by posting any future questions to our forum https://forum.gibbonedu.org/.
This is a huge undertaking that focuses and supports student directed learning. The creative commons license allows this idea to germinate in many schools beyond the international schools.
I haven’t had a complete look and it is a huge investment. ( I worked on MyDragonNet with Justin Hardman for years) Please share your work with him. A large volunteer community can make a difference.
Very best wishes,
Concordia International School Hanoi.
David, thanks for your very positive feedback on Gibbon! You are right on the scale of the undertaking…as of now I believe I am at least 8,000 hours into this project. As you say, community makes a difference, and hence we chose the GPL license (similar to Creative Commons but more traditional). I really think core education software should be available to anyone, free to change, and developed by educators.
We met in passing (I believe) at the 21C Job-Alike in December, and I have heard of Dragonet from a number of different sources. I will connect the dots with Justin.
If you would like a demo of the full scope of the system, just let me know and we can Skype. I am also looking for an excuse to visit Vietnam again…
I must say excellent work on Gibbon. It is probably the most complete piece of open source PHP programming I have ever seen.
I do have one question(for now). My web host does not allow access to the php.ini file. So I am forced to use the .htaccess file. Can I use the
php_value max_input_vars command? If yes how?
Thanks and God bless you and your work
