Drupal LMS to replace Moodle – Sakai – Instructure – Blackboard

Gilfus Education Group, Nov 08, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

According to Gilfus, "A Georgia-based company today announced at Educause 2012 the availability of an enterprise extensible LMS built fully on Drupal technology. The company expects to take Moodle, Instructure and Blackboard head on by leveraging one of the world’s largest open source communities to deploy an enterprise open source learning management system... This new Drupal learning management system for education (K12 and Higher Ed) is called Adrenna Academic." Could Drupal serve as an LMS? Well, sure. But I've used Drupal a lot over the years and I always come away frustrated and disappointed. I think you'd be better off with a purpose-build LMS than one built as layers on top of Drupal (which is itself layers on layers), both for reasons of speed (unless you really know how to optimize Drupal) and reasons of simplicity.
