Comments from some of those who selected Drupal as one of their Top Tools 

I can do anything I want with it. I can use it alone or with the other tools too, Despina Kalilai, 2014

  • “I’ve been using Drupal for a number of years, and find it to be the most flexible platform for the development of web applications. It has a steeper learning curve than some of it’s competitors, but you’re repaid many times over by the speed with which you can develop sophisticated sites. It’s what I used to build The eLearning Network website.”  Barry Sampson
  • “Drupal is a ‘quick’ way to create websites with lots of features without needing to know any programming (though it does help, as for the other open source apps if you know some php and css). It’s getting more features all the time, and again, a helpful user community is out there. When I think how many weeks it took to create a website lie Kids on the Net (www.kidsnthenet.com) years ago with Coldfusion and Access, Drupal could do the same thing in a matter of a few days’ work” Helen Whitehead”use for blog, other bibliography, and writing papers/book chapters” Pat Parslow
  • “This is an awesome open source CMS that can have any low level wannabe web designer building functional sites with nifty features in no time. The DrupalEd community has created an install that includes all of the modules for a great educational site in ONE simple install saving you many, many hours”  Brent Schlenker
