Richie, the best OpenSource CMS to build education portals



Learning Management Systems (LMS) are great tools for hosting and playing interactive online courses and MOOCs.

However, if you need to build a complete website with flexible content to aggregate your courses, in several languages and from different sources, you will soon need a CMS.

At "France Université Numérique", we wanted to build an OpenSource portal with Python and Django. That's why we built Richie on top of DjangoCMS, one of the best CMS on the market, as a toolbox to easily create full fledged websites with a catalog of online courses.

Among the features that Richie offers out of the box:
