On Microsoft Azure, you can launch this configuration into your account using the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.

  • Build courses and add content to them.
  • Create student assignments, tests and quizzes.
  • View student submissions and track progress.
  • Add course deadlines to the shared calendar.

  1. Bitnami Moodle 5

    The standard Open Source LMS

    by Daniel Lopez on

    Moodle is one of the most popular PHP projects out there. It makes it really easy to create and manage online courses. It has become the de facto standard LMS (Learning Management System) and, although it has its quirks, its rich ecosystem of vendors, extensions and plugins more than compensate those.
