Critical Analysis on Open Source LMSs Using FCA
Sumangali, K.; Kumar, Ch. Aswani
International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, v11 n4 p97-111 Oct-Dec 2013
The objective of this paper is to apply Formal Concept Analysis (FCA) to identify the best open source Learning Management System (LMS) for an E-learning environment. FCA is a mathematical framework that represents knowledge derived from a formal context. In constructing the formal context, LMSs are treated as objects and their features as attributes. This context is analysed and classified into concepts based on the rules of FCA. The knowledge derived from the concepts and our analyses reveal that Moodle is exceptional, with more features when compared with other LMSs.
