Our LMS

Claroline Connect is a Learning Management System, i.e. a free open-source downloadable software to manage trainings.

Most of the availables platforms today were developed in the early 2000s. Since then, the public, the expectations and the conception of the training itself have strongly evolved. These platforms are outdated and do not answer society’s reality any more.

"The distance learning platforms, or LMS's, are all practically designed in the same way: above all as posting spaces. These courses are made of resources proposed by teachers, completed by the activities achieved by the learners who follow the instructions given by the teacher [...]. According to Marcel brun, professor at the University of Louvain-la-Neuve, the LMS's (Learning Management Systems) are in fact TMS's: Teaching Management Systems. It’s the activity of the teacher that is valued, much more than the activity of the learner".

Christine Vaufrey, Thot Cursus, 2013

It’s on the basis of these reports that we developed Claroline Connect with Marcel Lebrun, spiritual father of the project. Claroline Connect is an innovative and modern platform which puts each person at the heart of his training by offering him/her the possibility to: create, share, choose and organize the elements which compose his/her training. Furthermore, the platform is thought in a collaborative vision, allowing every user to interact with other users within the framework of a common project. Why have we made these choice? Because today, more than ever, platforms have to allow more than a simple access to the contents which the learners can already find elsewhere easily .

All-in-one solution

Facilitates access to knowledge

The Claroline platform includes an important tool to manage your trainings. It allows to organize and manage the participation to trainings as well on site and distance learning or a mixture of both. You can generate invitations, certificates or even the timetable and the communication with your participants. Besides, the platform provides numerous tools allowing a large compatibility with the external contents.


The power of technology

Technology does not allow to work less, but to work better. We put all the power of technology in the service of the learners. That is why you can use all the types of media in your platform: movies, soundtracks, images, chatrooms, interactive presentations, and so on. To go even further, we developed an innovative system of learning paths allowing to adapt the training stages to the user's team or his results in an exercise. In this respect, the platform proposes a large number of question types that can be auto-corrected. Finally, a dashboard allows a precise follow-up of the trainings within the platform.


A single limit, creativity

More than a saying, within Claroline Connect, this sentence is a reality. You can completely personalize the platform: language, color, logo and much more can be adapted to the image of your company. You can adapt the structure of the platform to that of your training project. Besides this visual dimension, the various features of the platform allow the trainers a big freedom in the design of the devices : distance learning, on-site learning, tutoring, MOOCs, and so on. All the modalities are conceivable by means of our tool. And "because learning is an act of creation", every user, whatever his role is, has the possibility to aggregate or create his own contents.


A multilevel collaboration tool

The collaborative learning has a real added value for us. As professor Philippe Carré says: "We always learn alone, but never without the others". That's the reason why we have imagined our platform as a collaboration place. Messaging tools, chat and video tools, blogs and wiki editorial tools or sharing and exchange features of resources allow to consider the colaboration at all levels. Both as an educational tool within the framework of a training and as a functional support to a team in any type of project: creation of documentation, organization of company parties, management of material to borrow, etc.


Any time, anywhere, any device

As every learner is the master of his own learning, he can use our tool whenever he wants. That's why platforms are accessible 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Furthermore, our tool has a "responsive design", which means it is adapted to the size of your screen. You can thus reach the contents from your computer, your tablet, but also your smartphone.
