Moodle is one of the best open source tools to teach online courses with. You can choose the blended approach which uses in class face-to-face teaching pedagogy blended with online best practice or you can keep it all strictly online.

Leadership Class
This is an example of a blended leadership course that I taught with 6-12th grade students. We literally built the course as we went along and it made it very easy for students to go back over crucial information at their own pace, take quizzes multiple times or play games using the vocabulary from lessons taught at school.
There are even multimedia projects on the class blog.

As A consultant, I happily maintain LMS sites on Moodle. Good News: Moodle 2.0 was just released on November 24th with many exciting features. Please contact me if you require services. jdcogmon@jdcogmon.net or jdcogmon@gmail.com
