You can use HP QTP (proprietary) or else Selenium Web Driver(Open Source).

Selenium (UI / WebDriver / Grid) is good choice if you want some free (it's open source) testing tool for simulating user scenario or in general do some functional tests through UI.

Since this is an e-learning website, that requires a prpoer UI and compatible to all browser or devices. So in that sense you might need a UI testing tool if opting for automating. There are various tool and can use our own tool TestingWhiz for web UI testing. You can try TestingWhiz at - http://www.testing-whiz.com/

A lot is going to depend on what is underneath the application.  For example, is the eLearning site using AJAX, Flash, HTML5, some other type of embedded video play back.

The second question I'd ask is WHY automation tools?  Ask yourself what you hope to gain by applying an automation tool to this context?  eLearning is a highly visual medium, and its possible in some contexts that the pursuit of automation may greatly slow you down.

You can use InformUp test case management tool whether you decided to try it as hosted or standalone. Of course it depends in the size of your organization as different companies have different needs. What is also good about TestUp of informUp that you can use it for free trial for 14 days, so if you do not satisfied you can go away.
