Greetings, Edutopians! I work in Patient Education for a healthcare provider. We are looking for an LMS for patient education programs that are targeted at a fifth-grade level. I'd like for it to be as easy-to-use as possible, with no plug-ins or downloads required. Blackboard, Moodle and even Brainhoney would probably be too confusing for this patient population. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'd appreciate your feedback! Thank you.

I suggest AJ LMS which is the best free learning management system and it is designed for any education formations: from small distance training companies up to big colleges and universities. The system allows to build courses, import SCORM content, deploy online learning, manage users, communicate with users, track training results, and more.

Wow, good question. I've played around with a lot of LMS systems, and you're right - at first glance they can look quite confusing and challenging. Perhaps to help me think about which one might work best for you, you could suggest the kinds of things that you want students to do on it? What would a 'lesson' or a learning activity look like? What level of interactivity do you think would be desirable?

We are using Google Edu platform and have implemented the Free LearnBoost LMS though out the school. This system was built by teachers for teachers. We receive excellent customer service but we really do not need it as the program is very intuitive. The LearnBoost Team is very responsive and helpful in all aspects of the program by developing new features all the time. Please go to https://www.learnboost.com/ and have a look for yourself. I could go on and say that you can upload any Core Curriculum standards or that is IPad/IPod complaint or list the fantastic Lesson Plan Module, Gradebook, 24/7 parent / student communication and report features...Oh... I did...Yes, I am a big fan of LearnBoost and highly recommend it!

Several educators are using the YourLMS system. It is a fully Managed System which can be tailored to be as simple to use as any system on the market.

I have used this on and off for two years. It looks a lot like facebook and has entry points for teachers, students and parents so that the parents are (ideally) not to log on as a student and complete any of the student's work. For quick start up, it is pretty easy set up.

Haiku LMS is a very simple LMS that I have easily implemented with middle school students. Easy to set up and easy to navigate.
