Free and Open Source LMS
Is that a viable alternative for my organization?

with Abhijeet Vaidya

What is Open Source and is it free? To help you evaluate the viability of an Open Source Learning Management System (LMS) in your organization, our speaker will define Open Source, explain the different types of licenses, and present the legal and technical implications of using an Open Source LMS. You'll walk away with a set of questions you can use in your organization to evaluate the viability of using an open source LMS.

   Our extensive program includes:

  • Options and risks to consider
  • Software built from the ground up as an LMS
  • Content management systems using Open Source components & modules
  • Customizing and implementing an Open Source LMS
  • Case Study of a 6,000-employee company using an Open Source system
  • Open Source CMS availability in the SAAS model
