LMS vendor interview: ILIAS

20 décembre 2010

ILIAS is an open source LMS born at the University of Cologne. It has a large functional scope and, despite its long history (10+ years), it stays very well structured. And I can say this is unusual in the open source market!

Keeping a consistent roadmap is a challenge when most features are provided by a community and aggregated around the initial product. ILIAS meets this challenge thanks to strong design processes.

Today, I am pleased to welcome Matthias KUNKEL, product manager at ILIAS Open Source.

This week, I am proud to share with you the interview of a well-known French LMS vendor: Syfadis.

Syfadis has a clear business model, focused on providing e-Learning and HR software. This is a differentiation factor on the French market where most LMS vendors also provide content services.

If you are looking for an open source solution for your e-Learning initiative, you probably thought about Moodle, Dokeos, ILIAS, eFront or other open source LMSs. However, if you are already using a CMS such as Joomla to build your e-Learning portal and if you don’t want to manage 2 systems (LMS+CMS), JoomlaLMS may be an interesting alternative.
