Open Source Course Management System

Would you like to develop a online learning system? Moodle is a course management system (CMS) – a free, Open Source software package designed to help educators create effective online learning communities. Moodle is a software package for producing internet-based courses and web sites. It’s an ongoing development project designed to support a social constructionist framework of education. Moodle is provided freely as Open Source software (under the GNU Public License).

Moodle can be installed on any computer that can run PHP, and can support a SQL type database (for example MySQL). It can be run on Windows and Mac operating systems and many flavors of linux (for example Red Hat or Debian GNU). You can download and use it on any computer you have handy (including webhosts), yet it can scale from a single-teacher site to a University with 200,000 students.

Moodle has a large and diverse user community with over 400,000 registered users on this site. Moodle is available in a variety of download packages with different levels of stability, as well as via CVS. A number of additional modules/plugins and language packs are also available.

    Hi have you heard of Claroline? I find it much better than moodle, its not as bloated as moodle, and its code base is much better organized. Have a look http://www.claroline.net.

  • for those interested in OCW apps, I would strongly suggest keeping your eyes on Oryoki (http://www.oryoki.org). It will revolutionize OCW.

  • thank you share it

  • I’ve been using moodle so long. This CMS is convenience and very easy to use. I use Joomla! for my LMS since it is easier but less functionality.
