Docebo is a SAAS/Cloud platform for e-learning, also known as a learning management system.[1][2][3][4][5] From the Latin word, docere, Docebo is used for corporate learning and has interfaces for videoconferencing and HR systems.[2][3][6] Using an online system for learning and training cuts down time needed and costs that would be used on such things as printing and distributing materials.[5][7] Docebo is compatible with SCORM 1.2 and 2004 as well as Tin Can.[2] Developed by Docebo Srl, the program was originally released under a GPL V. 2.0 license with no licensing costs. The program now operates as a cloud-hosted software as a service platform as well as being third-party compatible. It currently runs version 6.1.[8] The company using the platform loads a course, creates a username and password for employees, and tracks the progress of its users.[9] Docebo is available in 30 languages. While the primary users of Docebo are midsized companies, it is also assessable for large companies and SMEs.[9][10][11]

Claudio Erba, who serves as CEO, founded Docebo in 2005.[1][10]

History[edit]

In 2005, Claudio Erba founded Docebo.[1][10] Erba had previously been working at the University of Florence as a computer consultant when a customer asked for a storage solution for teaching material.[12] The storage solution evolved into what is now Docebo.[12] In 2006, Seeweb invested € 150 thousand in the start up.[4][10]

In 2012, Docebo received € 2.4 million in funding from Principia II.[4][10] In July 2013, Docebo entered into an alliance with Rysto.[13] The agreement benefits both companies as Rysto gains a more international presence and Docebo added catering training and work to its repertoire.[13] Later that same year, Docebo opened an office in Athens, Georgia.[10][12]

Docebo has integrations with CMSs, videoconferencing software, Google Apps, WordPress, BigBlueButton and Vivocha, among others.[14]
