Corporations, hospitals, non-profits, and many other organizations are making the switch to open-source Learning Management Systems, like Moodle and Totara, for their professional development, onboarding, and other training needs.

These platforms can also incorporate eCommerce capability, making them ideal for organizations in the business of selling online training.
