eLearning tools.

There are currently two open source tools installed on a test server that seem to be the most used and complete ones: dokeos and moodle; however there are a lot of other eLearning tools that could be analyzed and tested if someone suggests them.

Both tools provide agenda, forum, chat, conferences, mail and content management tools (e.g. to create tests or quizzes) for every course. They also use the same technology (PhP + MySQL) and manage many languages, including French, English, Spanish, Italian and German. The only differences detected so far, is that moodle allows passwords for files and management of the themes for the interface (new themes creation or use of the themes included in the distribution). There is no mail server configued yet, therefore some of the features mentioned above may not be available.
