Abstract

Open Source Software (OSS) in the education field has often been recommended by different researchers in literature. Despite the fact that there has not been evidence, yet, of current OSS dominance over traditional methods, OSS use in education has been steadily increasing and expanding covering new domains. The reputation of the OSS learning system has a great deal of importance when it comes to people interested in adopting a Learning Management System (LMS). At any rate, choosing to start a new application or adapt and modify an existing one is an important decision. The study aims to produce basic guidance towards available OSS LMS, and their substitutes in the field of education. 23 different alternatives were picked from the existing active OSS based on previously published papers, the study also aims to produce a summary of the available studies and guides available, finally the study is aiming to bridge the gaps in the current literature while proposing a taxonomy of OSS LMS in 56 papers taken from literature.
