Hi there Kathy--

I've used WordPress for course websites for a diverse group of clients  
- from graduate professors to writers workshops and even alternative  
medicine schools.  Stas was succinct in saying that BuddyPress  
Courseware can pretty much cover what you need.  If you have any more  
specific questions, of course, feel free to ask this list more or even  
contact me directly.

Best of luck,
