    Guys, I really appreciate your support and I can say this is the best community ever!! Nothing is impossible with XenForo and to be honest with you for this reason I have moved to XenForo.
    I am using my XenForo in a different way as I am running an educational forum. Your addon has supported me somewhat. For example I am using the media add-on to upload and educational video clips and also, I am using the resources to upload pdf files and so on.
    However, I am wondering if there is any real educational or online learning add-on. Currently I am in need to have like PowerPoint slides show to present some lectures. Also, any form of Quiz Plugin or maybe any kind of survey system.

    Please if you read this thread at least share with us some ideas for an educational add-on.

    I have noticed others are wondering too

    Since there seems to be someone else making the reviews system add on that I was attempting to get funding for, I may switch to doing the survey system. Glad to see more interest in it.

    As far as the power point thing, I haven't seen one and I'm not entirely sure how it would function, never really have seen it built into a website.

    I am very glad to see your feedback @Daniel Hood...
    There are few websites have built the power point slides show. I guess the main thing is to protect the copyright and allowing members to view these shows without downloading them. Also it could have different classifications or categories

    Also some of these sites have supported pdf files 2

    It might be annoying but the power point presentation could be an album. Each album is it's own lesson. Just have to do some style tweaking and remove features such as like/view/share. Just upload each slide as an image instead?

    That power point he linked me to is actually just images sliding it seems. Others may be text based, not sure.

    There are various document viewers. Power point slides are simply pages. PDF pages can be flipped with flipbook functionality.

    I do agree with @Alfa1
    @Daniel Hood, it's appearing like pics to prevent others from downloading the ppt files and change the copy right

    For a survey program, LimeSurvey should do the job.

    Limesurvey is OK. We currently use it. Its advanced but complex functionality that senior academic users have difficulty with. It lacks any form of integration which is a real handicap. It does not enter the content discovery stream of our users, so they ignore it. Something integrated would be far superior.

    You might be able to bridge Moodle + Xenforo + Joomla with Jfusion.org
