.LRN (open source LMS)
.LRN is open source software for supporting learning and research communities. Originally developed at MIT as part of the Intellectual Commons, .LRN is now backed by a world-wide consortium of educational institutions, non-profit organizations, industry partners, and open source developers.

Together these capabilities support the complete online environment for learning communities and communities of practice in higher education, K-12, government, and non-profit organizations, with total cost of ownership significantly lower than custom or commercial solutions.
