Eliademy is based on Moodle (support import of course in Moodle format), Twitter Bootstrap and other open source technologies. Eliademy was unveiled to public in February 2013 by CBTec. Eliademy is available in 18 languages. Eliademy Android client (also compatible with Moodle LMS) is an open source project available at Github.
CBTec was founded in Helsinki, Finland in 2012 by Sotiris Makrygiannis and Sergey Gerasimenko. Following Nokia announcement on choosing Windows Phone as primary OS for its phones, Sotiris Makrygiannis, at the time Director of Open Source Operations, left together with 16 MeeGo colleagues. Their last project in Nokia was award winning Nokia N9. During the first year of operations CBTec had a revenue of 420 000 € and 48.000 € profit after taxes.
Eliademy mobility client (code name Huxley) was launched with support from Tekes – the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation. Eliademy is a part of TIVIT, Finland's initiative launched in order to create new disruptive digital service in the area of education.
Most notable partners are: Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs, AIESEC, and Corporate Responsibility Network FIBS. CBTec is also a board member of Centre for Open Systems and Solutions (COSS).
