Edventure Course Management SystemA free software project
The biggest difference between Edventure and the previous-mentioned programs (other than being free software) is that Edventure was designed to be a pedagogical tool. It allows the creation of on-line quizzes (complete with versioning of questions), and other common classroom on-line activities.
Currently, Edventure is composed of 217 functions, about 11,000 lines of source code, 23 tables (databases), and about 2,000 questions. The current edition supports gradebook, exam/quiz, document upload/download, on-line essays, and many other options.
Security issuesEdventure should be run on a secure computer, or in its own copy of your web server software (e.g. Apache).
A security audit has not been completed on Edventure. Until this happens (and even after it happens) beware of the risks involved in having sensitive data connected to the Internet. Keep backup copies. Have a validation system. Use at your own risk.
