The Common Learning Middleware project is a research project funded by the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft to integrate all teaching/learning technologies of the different Fraunhofer institutes in a common infrastructure. The result is a middleware technology (the CLM) that acts as an innovative and standards-compliant technical intermediate layer that can bring together a variety of different corporate education offerings, virtually all under one roof.
The "Fraunhofer Common Learning Middleware (CLM)" makes it possible to combine different teaching/learning technologies in a common infrastructure.
The Fraunhofer FOKUS is leading the development of the CLM software.
The CLM is based on established, standardized interfaces and exchange formats, so that synergies can be achieved between the various corporate e-learning technologies and business applications. This applies both to the provisioning of content and services between the company's own locations and to the provisioning of components for third party providers and external licensees.
The CLM uses established standards including Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) and Experience API (xAPI).
