Eliademy [əlɪaˈdəmi] was a free online classroom that allows educators and students to create, share and manage online courses with real-time discussions and task management. Eliademy is based on Moodle (support import in Moodle format), Twitter Bootstrap and other open source technologies. Eliademy was unveiled to public in February 2013 by CBTec. Eliademy is available in 32 languages.
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.
Eliademy Android client (also compatible with Moodle LMS) is an open-source project available at GitHub. It was launched with support from Tekes – the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation. Eliademy is a part of Digile, Finland's initiative launched in order to create new disruptive digital service in the area of education.
Eliademy has been featured on TechCrunch. and in other sources. In June 2014, it was named by EdTech Europe as one of Europe's 20 fastest growing and most Innovative e-Learning companies. In February 2015 it was selected as Finalist for the 2015 Edison Awards in category "Living, Working and Learning" and received Gold Award during award ceremony in New York in April 2015.
Eliademy service discontinued December 2019 due to financial problems of CBTec.
