LMS (learning management system)

This group should probably have more organizers. See documentation on this recommendation.

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.

It's now easier to administer H5P libraries!

We've had some feedback from community members who want more control of what happens behind the scenes in H5P, and we've now launched the H5P library administration feature

In earlier versions of H5P, the ability to administer installed H5P libraries were limited. In the newly published H5P module, the H5P library administration has gotten a lot better. Here we give you an overview of what the H5P library administration is all about.

If you don't need to know how to setup vagrant and want to play:


This screencast is a series of 4 videos (for now, will be more in the future potentially) that show how to get ELMSLN up and running with Vagrant. This is the easiest way to setup this system as other methods require knowledge of bash scripting and a clean server to deploy against.

Norways biggest e-learning site chooses H5P

www.ndla.no is Norway’s largest e-learning site for the secondary school level with 2,6 millions unique visitors in 2013. The website is publicly funded and has a large editorial staff for keeping the learning content up to date. NDLA requires most of its content to be openly licensed to encourage sharing and collaboration. NDLA now asks their vendors to deliver e-learning content as H5P, and uses H5P as their own authoring tool. They've already created over 1 000 H5P nodes.

Use H5P export to download and customize rich H5P content you find on other sites!

H5P's may now be exported. For a long time we've supported importing H5Ps, now we've gone full circle and also supports exporting H5P's. This means that if you as an editor finds H5P content on another site, and that site has H5P export enabled, you may download the content, upload it to your CMS, customize it and share it.

Take a look at demo.h5p.org. Here the export feature is enabled and you may export content from here and import it to your own site, make customizations and publish it.

CyberCourse and the author note reStructuredText directive

CyberCourse is software for writing textbook-like things.

An important goal is that content lasts for years (think decades) without change. It will work on new devices as they come along. Authors can move content across platforms (CyberCourse to ELMS to Moodle to PeeWee's Buckets o' Content Management System) without needing to rework content. Well, not much anyway. What rework is needed is done once for all nodes with regex.

CyCo uses CKEditor as a semi-GUI, not its usual WYSIWYG self. Authors write in reStructuredText. Think Markdown, but standardized.

Editable Interactive Timeline for H5P and Drupal

Timeline picture
The H5P timeline really shows of some of the strengths of H5P. A developer with the nickname “gafolini” took the great “TimelineJs” library by KnightLab, packed it as a H5P library, added a helper library and whoola! After two hours work we get this amazing new content type for H5P, and the existing library now is editable in web browsers, it is importable and exportable. It is amazing what H5P can add to existing js code with very little effort.

Screencast: Rich content and applications in Drupal - what is H5P all about?

I've previously submitted a couple of H5P teasers here at G.D.O. without explaining what H5P really is.

We've now created a screencast that shows how H5P may be used by authors to create, publish and share rich content in Drupal. H5P focuses on enabling Drupal users to create richer content like interactive videos, presentations where tests may be included on the different slides, question sets, games and more.

Is Schoology built on Drupal? If so is it violating the GPL?

I was researching LCMS (learning content management systems) or LMS platforms built to integrate or run on the Drupal platform. So far the most polished platform I've found was the SaaS (software as a service) product offered by schoology.


Now I'm not a lawyer but if schoology is built upon or in part using the Drupal platform is it not required to provide said code to anyone who asks under the GPL license?

Someone chime in and agree or set me straight on this subject.
