Learning Record Stores can replace hard copy reportsThe Skvare Learning Management Suite has been developed leveraging the best features and practices of the Drupal 7 API. The suite uses many common and publicly available Drupal contributed modules.

Until recently, there have been very few open source online learning management system (LMS) solutions available. Proprietary software has been the norm, with LMS's costing on average $250,000 to millions of dollars to get started. Data is stored in closed systems that are difficult or cost-prohibitive to export. Additional customizations are expensive and often only available from the software vendor.

With Skvare's contribution to the open source community, the barrier to entry for an individual or organization to have an online LMS is now a fraction of the traditional cost. Standardized and customized scalable systems can be developed openly with full ownership and privacy controls of the data compared to the proprietary systems of the past.

Skvare’s Drupal-based Learning Management Suite and Tin Can compliant LRS is an alternative to expensive proprietary software or specific open source projects Moodle or Learning Locker. It's designed to bring all your e-learning needs under one umbrella.

We can also provide training and hosting for continued support and guaranteed performance.
