The open-source community has created a broad suite of educational and e-learning course management systems (CMS) referred to as educational knowledge portals (EKP). An EKP is a software system designed to aid instructors in the management of online educational courses for their students, especially by helping teachers and learners with course administration. These systems make it possible for a course designer to present to students, through a single, consistent, and intuitive interface, all the components required for a course of education or training.
