We have released another open-source project, this time a WordPress plugin. Namaste! LMS is a learning management system for WordPress, completely free and up to date with the latest versions of the blogging platform.
In short, this first public version can do the following:
- Manage courses and lessons
- Manage students
- Enroll students in courses
- Create assignments and approve/reject their solutions.
There are rather flexible rules which define when to consider a lesson or course completed depending on solved assignments, exams (via Watu/WatuPRO), visited lessons, manual approvals and so on. Check the site for more detailed info.
The plugin is still new and there’s a lot to do. It starts well though, with more than 100 downloads from the first few days. My goal is will turn into a very user-friendly and frequently updated free LMS.
(Why WordPress? Because there is Moodle as stand-alone solution, and WordPress is easiest CMS. This does not exclude the plans to make Joomla or other CMS based learning management system in the future).
