Today we present another educational platform that will soon be available via the Univention ID Broker for all connected school boards and their schools: itslearning.
Founded in Norway in 1999, itslearning is now one of the most widespread used European learning management systems (LMS). With offices in eight countries and its headquarters in Bergen, Norway, itslearning became part of the Sanoma Group in 2019 and is used by millions of people around the world.
We would like to thank the initiators and supporters of the School Foundation of the Lutheran Church of Saxony. Through their initiative, we were able to quickly start with the implementation and piloting. They are one of the first to connect itslearning via the Univention ID Broker.

Advantages of the ID Broker
Linking itslearning to the Univention ID Broker promises a smooth transition for the connection between country, carrier or school instances of UCS@School and the learning management system. However, the ID Broker takes the interaction to a whole new level. Centralized authentication and the additional querying of user information, such as class and group memberships, will eliminate costly integration efforts in the future. Until now, these integration efforts had to be carried out by each school separately for each connection to a learning application. UCS@School users connect once to the ID Broker, provision a few essential user data on the ID Broker and can then directly activate itslearning and other offers connected to the ID Broker in their UCS@school portal.
In the following, we will present the possibilities of itslearning and its linkage to the ID Broker in more detail.
