The popularity of open-source software is increasing around the world, especially in the field of higher education. Various commercial as well as open-source learning management systems are available today which are being used in educational institutions. These tools have introduced a new concept of teaching methodology which has huge benefits over traditional methods. In this paper, we describe six popular open-source tools and compare them in terms of learning model, functional features, modules, hardware and software requirements. Results of the comparison will help administrators and educators in adoption of learning management system that is most suitable for their needs, and also promote development and usage of open-source learning management systems.
