    Pointers to start a e-learning site, LMS

    Hi All,

    I have been conducting online software trainings from some time.

    Now to give better training experience to my trainees, I want to give them online demos as well, that they can use 24*7. I am looking for a good content management system which can help me doing that.

    I saw some LMS's like moodle.org and then software like Articulate.com but am completely lost with all the lingos and don't know where to start.

    I have following questions. (I didn't get impressive results on Google)

    1) What is the difference between an LMS (ex moodle.org) and softwares like Articulate?

    2) Say, I purchase Articulate, do I need to mandatorily integrate it with an LMS?

    3) My requirement is that

    i) my trainees should be able to log-in to my site and access the trainings demos 24*7.
    ii) I also want to create standalone demos for the clients.

    Appreciate ideas from the expert webmasters here.

    Thanks!

    The Articular products (Engage, Presenter, Quiz Maker, and Video Encoder) seem focused towards creating Flash content.

    Moodle is more of a CMS. CMS's are focused more on "managing" content. Moodle is one of a number of specialized CMS's which fit into the LMS niche.

    Depending upon your requirements, a CMS/LMS is not necessary. There are many ways to present Flash content.

    Thanks Will. I got the point regarding diff between LMS and Articulate.

    Would you like to elaborate more on this There are many ways to present Flash content. Considering my requirements, what are the options available to me?

    Instead of an LMS, can this be integrated in a CMS like wordpress? By any chance do you know of any plugin that can do this integration?
