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.

Edmodo might fit well with your plans - very simple. I've seen it used in lots of primary success with lots of success.

I've heard good things about Edmodo. I've also seen a lot of people create "online courses" using free Google Sites. I guess it depends on the kind of security needs you have. Does it matter if people outside your organization see the content? Though with Google Sites you can control access by granting access with the desired users' emails. Using Google sites you could deliver the content in a method as simple as a bulleted list of links to articles, or just text and simple images on the page.

I need a LMS that allows me to post what's on my desktop or webcam onto the main screen for all viewers to see who log onto my site, anywhere in the world. Then, I need the option for anyone to speak to me (and so that all can hear) and, if I want to conduct a unison speech, let all hear the audio in sync with no latency issues. Suggestions?

Debra, how many people do you need to be on at once? If it's a small group, a Google+ hangout might do the job. For a larger one, you could use Adobe Connect.

I also second the Edmodo recommendation.

I use Edmodo with my 5th graders, and it's a great way to share assignments with students and receive work back from them. We've used it as a discussion board for a summer reading program and I use it with a class of kids to keep track of work. It's great.
