EctoLearning is a Solid Contender for Best Free Online CMS

EctoLearning offers useful course management functionality for free (and it’s all free, no limitations).


Last week I decided the next step in searching for the best free online Course Management Systems was to take a closer look EctoLearning and I’d already checked out Rcampus, MyiCourse, and SchoolRack, and while I found them each to be useful, I didn’t really find what I was looking for. I’m hoping that one of these two others applications will be a tool I can gladly recommend.



The basic idea behind creating a course page and content in EctoLearning is to create a group that represents the course, which automatically provides a nicely structured web page for the course. You can then create blog posts, assignments, forums, and content that you link to this group page. It’s a simple, effectively structured approach.

EctoLearning and Edu20 have got to have the most un-friendly home pages I have ever seen. I wouldn't sign up just on the basis that their home pages look unprofessional and outdated.

I have also checked out Rcampus and again why does it have to be so ugly? Free doesn't mean it shouldn't look professional.

Please have a look at The site is geared to helping students manage group projects online and teachers create virtual classrooms. This is a free site which was created with web 2.0 design in mind and networking in a similar fashion as Facebook (but for productive purposes!)
