Open Source eLearning Tools

Tony Karrer

I was just asked about trends in open source for eLearning and particularly open source eLearning tools. Probably one of the better sources on this is Jane Hart’s Instructional Tools Directory. In addition, she indicates if they are free or cost money – which is not quite the same thing as open source. Beyond that, probably the best thing to do is to use eLearning Learning to go through it’s open source eLearning and open source eLearning Tools. Here’s some of what I pulled out.

Because it’s open source, there are no licensing costs. Moodle and other open source products have huge communities behind them. Talented individuals who can program like hell and believe in the open source philosophy. But the beauty of open source is you can customize it. I think the time for open source is now. That’s the low price. Wrong.

CMS: An Alternative to a LMS for those who seek Portals or Communities

eLearning 24-7

And, with the costs of a LCMS or even some CMSs, you might want to seek out the open source – FREE way. Unless you plan to add some APIs (since they are open source, you could) to create reports on some data or do robust data collection, it is not going to happen. Later today, I will post a page on my site that contains an extensive list of free open source CMSs, for you to click and view. My Top List of Open Source – FREE – Content Management Systems.

Spicy Learning

Use an open source CMS. Just as Moodle provides provides a great starting point for an effective learning management system (and can be used ‘out of the box’ for hosting one or two courses), open source content management systems such as Drupal, Joomla and WordPress are the place to start for most website requirements. More and more often, a website is part of the blend for a successful change campaign. The most obvious example is a learning programme which engages with a wide, public, audience. A website is the logical solution. Decide on the content first.

Test LMS

Probably the most interesting is: Open Source CMS - a site that has a whole bunch of open source tools installed so that you can play around with them. The eLearning software I saw was: ATutor Claroline Docebo suite Dokeos DrupalEd Interact Moodle SyndeoCMS It also has a bunch of content management systems, a CRM (SugarCRM) and others.

This is the marriage of Elgg, Drupal, Moodle, and Mediawiki. Its like the snickers bar of learning: Lots of the most yummy open source platforms rolled into one. Like I said a few posts back, we are at our worst when we try to create our own learning system thingy. However, OpenAcademic is not about an enterprise vendor riding the latest trend. This helps answer many of the questions I receive like, "how do we decide which to use, wikis, blogs, or social networks", or "how can we make them work together". I'm changing these slides at least once a day.

Sakai 3 Development Process

Experiencing eLearning

More things can do the things Sakai had to do itself a few years ago–broader open source community. JCT, Open Social (What are these?). it’s not Drupal) but some simple content management is possible. Someone commented that this looks a lot like Open Syllabus, but they want this to be easier than that. These are my notes from the webinar on the Sakai 3 development process by Michael Korcuska about Sakai 3 Participation. This is about the changes coming for Sakai and what needs to be done in the community right now to move development forward.

Social Media Goals

Clark Quinn

Drupal is an open source CMS that’s been used for social media, and Elgg similarly started as an open source portfolio tool but has expanded. I spent yesterday touring the Web 2.0 expo (part of the time with fellow miscreant Jay Cross ), and it led me to think a bit more about social media tools and approaches. After touring the floor, having lunch, and touring the floor some more before the keynotes, my reflections have to do with hybrids and implementation. Talking to them, and the others there (Vignette & Lithium) has me reflecting more broadly.
