ELMS has approximately 50 modules, themes, and features packaged on drupal.org as well as two full-scale distributions. This group will help foster development efforts in the ELMS community as well as tackel large initiatives like integration with SIS, LDAP, porting to Drupal 7 and beyond.
There's a new group at:
It's for creating a distro to help authors write learning content, like Web sites that replace textbooks. The distro will have tools to help authors follow learning science principles, like outcome-based learning.
An learning content authoring system (LCAS) is not the same as an LMS. An LCAS instance will house content for, say, one course. Multiple LMS will use LTI/SCORM/TinCan to load content from the same LCAS instance.
(This is going out on several channels. Apologies if you get more than one copy.)
There are many Web sites and tools for authoring textbooks: iBooks Author, Flat World Knowledge, etc. Good tech, but there's a fundamental flaw in their specs. They're based on an obsolete view of learning.
Education researchers have shown how we can help students learn STEM skills (STEM: science, tech, engineering and math). Deep learning, formative feedback, other things. We need to redesign authoring software based on these research findings.Read more
Haha, I finally find the right group. The ELMS.
I am developping another ELMS for online learning system too.
And with a drupal7 extended framework for online learning system development, It is named Glools-Drupal.
Hi, who is the master of the group, would you can tell me something about the future of ELMS. May be we can development the system together.
Good Luck, men, girls and every body.

Just a quick community note about some momentum in projects that often times directly benefit the drupal edtech community.
LTI is moving along in the community it seems -- http://drupal.org/sandbox/jzornig/1809350
Epub would be an excellent format to support exports to which funnymonkey has some work into that I need to test -- http://drupal.org/project/epub_exportRead more
I am developing a platform particular to ESL learners and I find that ELMS is the perfect resource for helping me to design useful online courses. The only major issue I'm running into with starting is understanding how to manage users. I would like to setup a method of having students subscribe to a course, with some form of payment system, and then manage their access to certain resources. I would then like them to be able to engage in the course materials and also be able to utilize the CLE functionality. I need this all to be under the blanket of one site.Read more
This is the current list of blockers for me with Drupal 7. This is split into three areas: Drupal as a Course (1 course per Drupal site), Ulmus, and ELMS. Drupal as a course is a different distribution that has yet to be named.
Drupal as Course: MOOC Distribution
