Open LMS to Go Fully Open Source by the End of 2021

Open LMS has announced plans to release all of its Moodle modules and enhancements by the end of the year, as well as dedicate more resources toward developing features and code for the open source learning management system. Open LMS is a subsidiary of Learning Technologies Group plc, which acquired the Moodle-based LMS (once known as Moodlerooms) from Blackboard early last year.

In addition, Open LMS will release its Learnbook workplace training platform as open source, rebranded as Open LMS Work.

"Open LMS looks forward to leveraging an engaged community alongside our own team of developers to improve the features and components that we will release," said Dean Saunders, VP of product development at Open LMS, in a statement. "We also hope to empower both Open LMS clients and the greater e-learning community to take advantage of innovative tools that can improve the learning experience for Moodle and Moodle-based software users around the world, as well as ensure they feel confident in their long-term ability to support the longevity of the programs using this software for years to come. We have some exciting items on our roadmap for our corporate and higher education products that we can't wait to share with the rest of the community."
