Open source learning- and content management system

ILIAS – The open source learning platform

ILIAS is a powerful and flexible software for web-based learning and work. Far beyond the possibilities of a traditional learning management system (LMS), ILIAS can be used in a wide variety of contexts as a learning, knowledge and cooperation platform.

Thanks to its licensing as open source software and its lively development, support and user community, ILIAS can be precisely adapted to the needs of your institution or company. Accordingly, ILIAS installations look diverse and different in practice – exactly as they are needed in each individual case.

Digital sovereignty

ILIAS is committed to digital sovereignty. This aims to reduce political and economic dependencies in the software sector. It allows people to move independently, self-determined and securely in the digital world.

With ILIAS, you retain complete control over your data – and decisive co-determination options in the further development of the software: The GPL licence not only ensures users access to the programme code and the possibility of further development. It also guarantees the sustainability of development and independence from the corporate policies of commercial software producers.

ILIAS is an abbreviation and means:

Integrierte Lern-, Informations- Arbeitskooperations Translated: an integrated learning, information and collaboration system. It has been developed in Germany since 1997, initially at the University of Cologne out of a need to improve education. Many universities in Germany now use ILIAS, just like companies and other organizations.

NATO Facility Security Clearance Certificate (FSCC)

For companies that (will) carry out work for NATO, for which physical access and/or access to classified information is required, NATO in many cases requires a Facility Security Clearance Certificate (FSCC).

An FSCC is a certificate that shows that the company meets the requirements of information security at a certain classification level.

Future Learning is in possession of this certificate and regularly works as an ILIAS expert for NATO units and/or partners.

ILIAS also has certification from NATO as software to be used for the use and dissemination of sensitive learning content and documents, also within the protected intranet of the defense alliance.
