The EhB and VUB are jointly developing the e-learning and collaboration platform Chamilo in order to facilitate the teaching skills communication between teachers and students and also between students themselves. They work together with other colleges for this (e.g. HOGent, Arteveldehogeschool Gent, HoWest), adult education centers, secondary schools (Sint-Pietersinstituut Beringen) and international companies (e.g. Helix Learning, BeezNest, …). Chamilo is used by about half a million people in educational institutions, NGOs, private companies and governments.
In September 2012 Chamilo has been implemented in the EhB and VUB.
