At least, there is free e-learning authoring tool Answered

Of course, it is not "ready-to-use" library. But anybody can make your own e-learning courses using that tool. Because it is free and quite easy-to-use. Here it is: CourseLab 2.2

Requires Internet explorer to play back. Idiots. (as in, there's no reason but laziness for such content to require a particular browser. Content that requires a particular browser is pretty close to Evil. Content preparation SW that generates content only readable via a particular browser IS evil. Or stupid. (Who's "law" is that: "never blame on mal intent behavior that is adequately explained by incompetence!"?) I think that makes it useless on the OLPC project?

Not quite. Please read carefully. It requires Internet Explorer for editing. Actually for preview while editing. Generated content can be played in Gecko browser family as well. In fact, the only browser requirements are: JavaScript-enabled and XML-capable. And it's FREE software, by the way :)

The download page says:
    * Microsoft® Windows® 98, Me, NT 4.0, 2000, XP, 2003      (limited support of Microsoft® Windows® 95 *), or Linux;    * Internet Explorer 5.0 (Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher recommended),      Mozilla FireFox 1.0 or higher, Netscape® 7.2 or higher;    * JavaScript enabled;    * XML support enabled (Microsoft® XML Parser 3.0 or higher      recommended for Internet Explorer**).
Which is still a pretty small set of browsers, IMO, but not nearly as bad as I thought from the first time I skimmed through it.
