Hi -
Is anyone using an open source or vendor system to do training, compliance, and/or certifications? We have a homegrown solution that we need to replace soon by either rewriting or purchasing and I'm trying to get a feel for the market.
Essentially we need to do authentication via CAS or LDAP, provide some static HTML content for someone to step through, then a quiz  to grade. After successful completion of the module, a printable certificate may be presented and a report could be run on the backend breaking down the users by department and school. Ideally we could identify all the modules a certain person based on an LDAP attribute or role would be required to take and manage all their certifications from a single place.
Our LMS doesn't seem like a good fit to me, though I'd be curious to know about ways you've bent your LMS to fit these needs if you have.
