Everyone interested in using drupal to power learning management systems (LMS) is welcome to participate. Particularly if you or your company has already built a LMS in drupal or some piece of functionality that could be used for course management or something like that.
This group is an outgrowth of one of the BOF's at drupalcon SF.
A Boardgame content type is now available on H5P.org. Here students solves minigames that are layed out on a game board and gets rewarded with videos for success.
Boardgame also includes Multichoice, Drag and Drop and Questionset. It is completely editable using a web-browser. Download boardgame, and create you own boardgames, question sets, multichoice tasks and drag and drops using Drupal and a web-browser.Read more
H5P beta has been released! This is a sneak peek into what is about to arrive:
(The presentation is 100 % editable using a web browser without plugins)
H5P stands for HTML5 package and is designed to fill the need flash once filled. HTML5 content is created as a singe file and may be uploaded to a website the same way a flash file is uploaded and published. BUT the content will also be editable using a web browser(without plugins), it will be responsive and work great on mobile phones.Read more
I'm planning to launch an elearning website. I thought of starting off with Moodle which is an excellent LMS. I know it can support Adobe Captivate 6 well to submit scores to SCORM. But, I don't have any idea about drupal 7. Will drupal 7 provides same functionality as of Moodle?? Will it be able to support Adobe Captivate 6 and SCORM?? Can somebody help me by giving your good solutions??
I've been playing with the idea of using Drupal as a content management system for Educational content, thinking of any multipage content from a few pages of formatted notes to accompany a lecture to 100+ page online textbooks. I know there are a number of great projects out there that cover this to varying extents, so I didn't want to reinvent what they have done but to look at what might enhance this part of their functionality.Read more
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.
We are developing a learning management system using Drupal 7 and the Quiz set of modules. We have run into a few problems in dealing with the complexities of the project. The existing modules and functionality of Drupal 7 may not be enough to fulfill the requirements of the project and custom modules or custom code may be necessary, which is beyond the current developer's skills.Read more
(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
EduERP is student and staff adminstration software for educational institutions. It is available for download and immediate use.
The student information system can do admissions, clearance, course registration, grading, exams processing and transcripts. With plugins for creating and synchronizing user accounts on e-mail servers, payment administration, HR management and a flexible reporting system, most schools can automate student and staff management with EduERP.

I thought I should post a few lines about two project I've been working with recently:
This module/project allows questions that are generated and evaluated by scripts. In the simplest form it could be "What is A + B?", and varying the parameters A and B, but questions could of course be much more complex (and don't have to be math questions).Read more
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
The LTI Tool Provider module (lti_tool_provider) http://drupal.org/sandbox/jzornig/1809350 allows a Drupal site to serve as a Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) Tool in any Learning Management System (LMS) supporting the LTI standard. (http://developers.imsglobal.org/)
Example LTI compliant LMSs are Blackboard Learn, Moodle and Sakai.
Are you an educator teaching Drupal at college level? Do you know an educator who'd like to teach Drupal?
I'm trying to reach educators who are teaching Drupal as subject matter at college level.
Cross-posting in a few places where it may not be directly related, but we too often focus on Drupal as an LMS, etc without attracting educators who could teach Drupal.Read more

We have created a module for holding exams using Drupal, Quiz and Organic Groups:
From the project page:
Enables you to use your Drupal site to hold exams. Integrates with the Organic Groups module so that all group members will be put into exam mode when the time for exam arrives. In exam mode the users can only access a predefined set of pages in a predefined order, and all blocks are hidden except those you want to be visible in exam mode. Exam pages are only visible when taking exams.
Any feedback will be appreciated.

Training Your Clients with Easy to Create Video Tutorials - Rod MartinRead more
hi, I was at the drupalcon Lms bof. We are building our Lms in drupal, but my company wants to be sure we made the right choice. Tell me your stories about Drupal as an LMS ( esp K-12 ). How many students do you have using your site? How many concurrently? How does it scale? How did you implement flash for classroom activities and how are you implementing tests / content in Drupal? Is it scalable ( I know the answer to this....but they require proof ).
Do you have any suggested resources or reading we could do on this topic?
