JISC OSS Watch recently reported that more than three quarters of all UK colleges and Universities consider open source options when procuring IT systems.

However the study found that "open source" is only mentioned in the instituitional policies of 25% of those deploying open source systems suggesting a discrepancy between policy and practice.

The report also found that there is no clear leader amongst Content Management Systems, although the use of the open source system Moodle has grown to 56% in less than three years.
