Time to Learn
Environnement d'Apprentissage Collaboratif
Curated by Frédéric DEBAILLEUL
In recent years, one thing has become abundantly clear: the learning management system market is growing by leaps and bounds. I remember the days when the only viable LMS was Blackboard – and the cost for implementation was somewhere to the tune of $25,000. Well, times have changed (for the better… except for Blackboard) in that there are plenty of new accessible options available, and for multiple different software platforms (for example, the upcoming LearnDash WordPress LMS plugin).
Open source Learning Management Systems have become extremely popular in recent years, but what does open source mean?
Open Source technology is technology where the source code is “open”, that is, the code is available to the public and free to be modified. Improvements can be made by developers and it can be spread or sold to the wider community. So, why should an organization choose an open source Learning Management System as opposed to a homegrown or proprietary LMS?
