Greetings Yama, and welcome to the list!

Allow me to suggest visiting GlobalLiteracy.org and contact Richard
Brincefield.  He helped develop the University of Phoenix'
widely-known eLearning program, and also used Docent until he ran into
Moodle (www.moodle.org).  Moodle matches Docent almost feature for
feature, albeit without the $10-$20k price tag.  He is over in
Arizona, and could prove an invaluable resource in terms of eLearning
systems.  I hope you'll find this helpful.
