    So I am planning an educational app for all recent HTML5 browsers (be the browser on iOS, OS X, Windows, Android, etc.). I would really like advice on which free software package I should get.

    First, my "content" includes images, audio, video, and interactive HTML5 (Javascript being the main language)

    Equally important, I need users and user authentication and would really like https.

    Third, I want to give certain users (who have "paid") access to certain web pages / images / audio / videos.

    Finally, it would be really nice if I could store player progress / scores and if the player progress triggered access to even more web pages / images / audio / video.

    Again, I don't know for sure if such a software package exists, but I am thinking -- Facebook clone with different Facebook Apps for different levels of progress. This would 1) allow for the posting of the four things previously mentioned. 2) have user authentication 3) allow for different levels of users (giving access to "trophy groups" and "advanced progress apps"). 4) A Wall for the posting of scores and history.

    Any suggestions appreciated!

    Wordpress would handle most of this. Add in a couple of plugins and I think you'd be good to go. Actually any CMS could do this well.

    Certainly Wordpress would be able to handle the framework for your app providing user access, different pages, https etc.

    You'll probably need to write some glue to get everything you need but Wordpress will give you an excellent foundation to build from.
