Elgg: A New CMS?





In a previous post, I mentioned that Elgg is not a Personal Learning Environment (PLE), it´s just another online portal or a new centralized LMS. Recently I ran across 2 posts by Dave Tosh: Elgg and Drupal integrate followed by Moodle and Elgg, Drupal, Moodle and OpenID part two pointing to the integration of Elgg, Drupal and Moodle. I´m wondering if this is not the confirmation that Elgg is not more than a CMS: Content Management System like Drupal or Course Management System like Moodle.

Rather than a CMS, it's a social networking platform. There'd be no point in integrating it if it didn't have anything new to offer :) Adding Elgg to your web application arsenal allows you to add social functionality not available in any of the other tools.
