ILIAS Learning Management System
The ISN’s open learning platform is based on the Learning Management System ILIAS, a joint open source project developed by numerous educational institutions and private enterprises, including the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) and members of the ISN's TACC Team. Besides being used by many universities and enterprises, ILIAS is also used by numerous organizations within the defense and security sectors.

ILIAS SCORM Editor
The Interactive Image; one of the many features of the ILIAS SCORM Editor
The ISN developed the ILIAS SCORM Editor in order to support content production in multinational projects. Not only is it designed to provide appealing, interactive and highly interoperable content, its software also downloads and installs easily as part of the ILIAS Learning Management System.
Organizations wishing to use or evaluate the ILIAS SCORM Editor for content production may request their own working directory on a dedicated ISN production server.
