Is there any Wordpress LMS theme/plug-in avaialbe???

Dear expert(s),

Is there any wordpress theme/plug-in available that will work as a  simple 'Learner Management System' ???

I have been assigned to develop/commission a web portal where users will see the latest postings by the admin on the front page but to access detailed information they need to register/log on.

Once registered/logged in, user(s) can access to details of the postings section as well as other pages of the website that have online resources, template etc.

The site administrator will receive all the registrant(s) details (for example name, address, tel).

I know google docs does similiar thing but I am thinking to get a plug-in/theme in wordpress that will do this job better.

Hope it makes sense and I look foward to hear any suggestion/advice/idea from you.

Many thanks and kind regards.

None of what you describe above is really LMS functionality.  It sounds like you need a simple membership management plugin that can restrict access to certain areas of the site based on login status.

Ok, I might be wrong the way I have presented the problem. Is there any plug-ins or theme available for this purpose? In wordpress I mean.
Jason C. Levine

Sure there are, there are tons of them.  But before we get into specifics, do you know what an LMS actually does that distinguishes it from a simple login/content protection system?

I want to make sure I steer you in the right direction :)

Yes I have but still let me clarify my understanding: its a web based system that allows multi user access to online learning portal for example, and study course and progress further. The admin user can view, administer/moderate the progress of learner and so on. My long term objective is have something like this but for now a content protected/user controlled system will do my job.

Thanks.

this for this. looks like this plug-in will do my job for now. I will give it a shot, however is there any theme that could work as a light/simple lms??
Jason C. Levine

No, because the functionality you are after is not really theme-based.  you are looking at functionality that is added on via plugins.
