Contemporary teaching requires modern technology and IT architectures. Only systems that are effortlessly available for teachers and students, user-friendly and didactically flexible will find acceptance in schools. For this purpose, we have developed the HPI Schul-Cloud. It provides easy access to the latest professionally maintained applications, a wide variety of digital media, networking of different learning locations and the legally compliant use of communication and collaboration tools.


HPI Schul-Cloud is an open source learning management system which we are developing with a user centric approach. Students and teachers at our pilot school directly influence the design of our platform. A microservices based software architecture creates a scalable solution and allows federal states or regional school boards to tailor their learning environment depending on the existing IT infrastructure and specific user needs.
