Bremen, May 5, 2021 – Univention and the Verband Bildungsmedien e. V. are improving digitization in education with their partnership. The association has commissioned the Bremen-based software manufacturer to connect the identity management of its school solution UCS@school with the association’s license management BILDUNGSLOGIN as part of a pilot project. It intends to provide teachers and pupils with simple access to digital educational media in compliance with data protection laws.

The piloting will take place with selected school authorities, starting in the school year 2021/2022. Afterward, BILDUNGSLOGIN will be connected to all leading public and private school administration and learning management systems.

UCS 5.0 – first release candidate published

With the first release candidate (RC), we are announcing the finalization phase for the major release of Univention Corporate Server, UCS 5.0. We will be concentrating on stabilizing the features implemented up to this point. Compared to the beta version of UCS 5, which we published in December, we have been able to achieve many improvements, in particular in the web interface of the UCS portal, the management console and the Univention App Center. I would like to present these briefly.

Cool Solutions on GitHub

Almost ten years have passed since we published the first Cool Solution for UCS 3.0: in 2011, on November 25 at 8:02 am, we created a new page in the Univention Wiki which collects the Cool Solutions for the different versions of Univention Corporate Server. A lot has happened since then: Many instructions are now available in English and no longer in German, and there is a separate section for the Cool Solutions in the Univention forum.
