Due to the increase in online education, organisations are now seeking to reach new levels of quality education by implementing learning management systems. There are various factors that these organisations must take into account. Some of these factors include costs, implementation, development and evaluation of the software. This report looks at various existing learning management systems and explores their strengths and weaknesses. A thorough evaluation showed that the Moodle Learning Management System offered the most benefits in terms of the services and features that it offers to its users. Moodle is an open source software solution that is entirely free to use. Since its inception thousands of Moodle sites have been registered and the software has been developing as open source. Because of its open source nature, Moodle has been improved by the addition of new modules to provide greater functionality. The addition of two such modules, one for enhanced tutorial management that addresses assignment hand in, mark management (etc.) and a second that provides interoperability with 3rd party courseware. In addition, this report documents modification of the Moodle LMS in terms of the requirements, design and integration of a tutorial and interoperability modules into the Moodle LMS.
