Prevalent Python/Django academic software

Is anyone working on any software at present, using django or python
in general, which serves various academic/course functions, or else
that of student-instructor arbitration? A popular example which my
university uses is the "Blackboard Academic Suite" (wpedia:Blackboard
Inc.), which offers a wide range of course functionality (prof
announcements, forums, content management, grades, file sharing, etc.)

A preliminary search on Google didn't turn up much. I'm interested in
developing this sort of application if there aren't any at large, or
perhaps even if there are. I'm equally interested in looking into
existing options.

Thanks,

I don't understand the question. YES, there are MANY
Python-based applications doing service in a variety
of academic contexts. No, there is no central index
of all such programs.
Sorry if I was unclear. If there are many such applications, very
good! I hope to use them. Certainly there seems not to be any sort of
central index, which was why I hoped to hear the opinion of various
c.l.py users.

No, money is not one of my objectives. Neither is paying for software,
however, which is why I wondered if anyone was currently developing
any relevant, open-source applications. I had not heard the name
Moodle, thank you.
