Hi, in my opinion, deploying WordPress.org based LMS is way easier and cost-effective. You need a hosting and domain.

Setup WordPress.org on your hosting and install an LMS plugin like buy LearnDash LMS (paid), LifterLMS (free), LearnPress LMS (free) or WP Courseware LMS (paid) to add LMS features.

To add HTML5, xAPI or SCORM Content exported from Storyline or Rise 360, you can use GrassBlade xAPI Companion plugin. For xAPI or SCORM packages you need a Learning Record Store to collect and report learners activities. You can use any LRS or their own GrassBlade Cloud LRS.

Adding this plugin gives me better content launch options and it helps me to keep things organised and no coding skill is required to manage my articulate content on WordPress.

Now create courses in any of your selected LMS and launch your Articulate content on the lesson, topic or quiz pages with GrassBlade xAPI Companion.

I'm planning to include more video-based content in my LMS as GrassBlade xAPI Companion provides advanced video tracking that gives me a lot more useful insight on user behaviour.

You're all set to go.

The most awesome thing about this setup is I can sell my courses at any price, without paying a single cent for every new user to the LMS provider. Also, I have complete control over look and feel of the website and LMS. You can scale it any no. of users that can be handled by your hosting provider.

Hi Alan! 

Since someone mentioned Rise.com, I thought I'd tell you more about that option!
