Navigate 3.2.1 Tools for Deciding on an LMS

When deciding on an LMS for the organization, one should look at the budget and take the needs of the organization into consideration because these are usually the top factors for decision making.
Due to the high cost of a commercial option, many K12 educational organizations use open source systems. Some of the open source options are Moodle, Sakai, Instructure’s Canvas, OLAT, ATutor, Blackboard, and Google’s CloudCourse. Moodle and Sakai are the two top options for K12 learners in the U.S.
OLAT and Blackboard, on the other hand, are designed to handle the complexities of higher educational organizations. OLAT, for example, allows users to create e-portfolio and to upload master thesis. ATutor is designed for the visually impaired and disable learners.
