8 of the Best Free Linux e-Learning Tools
E-Learning consists of all types of electronically
supported teaching and learning. It represents the computer
and network-enabled transfer of knowledge, behaviors, and skills.
E-learning includes Web-based learning, virtual classrooms, digital
collaboration, and computer-based applications. The learning activity
is often delivered over the internet and intranet/extranet, although
optical media, and satellite TV are also alternatives.
E-Learning has many benefits over traditional methods of
learning. It enables individuals to study when it would
otherwise not be practical. For example, a student may live in a
remote location and be unable to relocate e.g. because of family
commitments. It also allows the tuition to be self-paced or
instructor-led, and is often more economical than traditional methods.
Linux has a wide range of e-Learning software available. The
purpose of this article is to focus on open source software which is
both user friendly for students and instructors.
To provide an insight into the software that is available, we
have compiled a list of 8 of our favorite e-Learning tools. Hopefully,
there will be something of interest here for anyone who wants to
embrace electronically supported learning and
teaching. We give our strongest recommendation to Moodle.
So, let's explore the 8 eLearning tools at hand.
For each application we have compiled its own portal page, a full
description with an in-depth analysis of its features, screenshots,
together with links to relevant resources and reviews.
