Learning Activity Management System

Short Name: 

Learning Activity Management System, or LAMS, is an e-learning application based at the Macquarie E-learning Centre of Excellence (MELCOE) at Macquarie University, Australia.

LAMS claims to provide teachers with a "highly intuitive, visual authoring environment" for creating sequences of learning activities. Activities can include a range of individual tasks, small group work and whole class activities based on both content and collaboration.

LAMS is also developed in Java and uses the JBoss application server. Versions that integrate with other e-learning systems like Moodle, Blackboard, and Sakai are also available.
