You may want to check out ATutor <http://www.atutor.ca> developed out of the
University of Toronto. I'll be honest -- I haven't delved into it that
deeply nor used it, but it appears feature rich, is open source, meets your
deployment requirements and is built with accessibility as a cornerstone of
the technology. I've met Greg Gay, Project Manager for Atutor and he's a
good guy, so I expect the software is pretty solid too... ;)
