Interactive Course Assignment Pages

I saw the Interactive Course Assignment Pages (ICAP) mentioned on the Library Web Chic's weblog. not cataloging related, but still looks useful. For colleges and universities, of course, but how about for the homework help area at the public library? School libraries? So many places this could be useful.
Librarians have enough to do and maintaining static HTML pages is tedious and time-consuming. The ICAP tool enables librarians with minimal technical expertise to create dynamic web pages that integrate Web 2.0 features, such as chat and RSS feeds, with traditional library content, such as catalogs and article databases.

The ICAPs use a module layout to display content written and produced by librarians, as well as library resources and interactive widgets.
