Welcome to the explicanto Open Source Project Documentation


explicanto is a integrated E-Learning, Knowledge Management and Knowledge Distribution Platform.

explicanto helps to capture, transform and distribute knowledge in a quick, efficient and organized way. This is performed independently of time and place.
