Is there any open source alternative to TalentLMS or Moodle ?

Ideally with following features,

Roles: Admin, Learner, Instructor

Features: CPD Plan with multiple levels, Self Assesments Quiz, Instructor should provide feedback on quizes.


Canvas by Instructure is AGPLv3 licensed.

Until earlier this year, I was the primary admin for 2 instances (plus test/beta env), did support, etc. and I still use it as a teacher and as a student. HOWEVER... I've only used the hosted/paid for option, with all the nice 3rd party integrations and the licensing that goes with those (hosted Big Blue Button for Conferences tool, etc).

That said, the AGPL version should do what you want. If you want to do a feature check on the hosted version, you can get a free account and trial course space (and even teach a term or two with few limits) at https://canvas.instructure.com/login/canvas


There is also Sakai, but it was bad enough that a large state university in my same town ditched it after I showed them what Canvas was doing for us...
