Top Ten Free Open Source Platforms

Many people are aware of Moodle, but there are others out there as well.

1

Moodle

It's Free. It's documentation is poor. It needs mass customization - but hey it's free. Used in education.

3

Open Elms

Open Elms

Open Elms - is the first and only 100% free open source LMS for business geared for biz from day one. The others were all built for edu first.

Dot Net Nuke

DNN - yes there are LMSs built on it. Biggest name? Accord LMS

Zotonic

Yeah it's free. One LMS has been built on it already - a newbie - anyway, if you know the code and are creative, with lots of time on your hands or someone else who has time on their hands. This is doable. It's all about people - resources, code and time.

5

Open Edx

Open Edx

Open edX - you might have heard of it - if you are in the edu setting - now use the code! It's free.

6

Sakai Project

Sakai Project - can't say much more than that. Okay, I could - but I won't.

7

Wordpress

Wordpress

Yes, you can create an LMS with Wordpress. LearnDash did.

8

OLAT

OLAT

It has a funny name, but nothing funny about this open source freebie. Some swear by it, others don't. You decide.

9

Metacoon

Metacoon

Metacoon is made for education - offers several modules, two of which are fee based, but the rest are free.

The site does offer multiple languages - its default is German.
