OLAT 6.0.0

Release planned for 25.6.2024

Table of contents


Overview of the new features (selection):

New course element "Page"

  • Course content is inserted using a block editor, with various types of blocks available. Media content can be selected from the new Media Center or uploaded. The previous course element "Single page" has been renamed "HTML page" and is still available.


  • Course owners can assign tasks as to-dos for individual or all course participants.
  • In learning path courses, to-dos can be created automatically from the sub-steps of the workflow in the course element "Task".
  • OLAT users can create to-dos for themselves and have their to-dos displayed via the personal menu.


  • Course owners can award badges (badges for completed tasks or achievements) to course participants manually or automatically according to criteria they define themselves.

Additional file types

  • Since the activation of OnlyOffice in OLAT 5.6.0, additional file types (.doc, .xlsx, .pptx) can be selected wherever new files can be created.

New standard course type

  • The default course type when creating courses is now "Course with learning progress". The "Conventional course (classic)" type can still be selected.

Redesign of user interface elements

  • Instead of checkboxes for switching certain options on and off, "switch" elements are now used (and much more)

Structure of the OpenOlat documentation

  • The structure of the OpenOlat-Manual has been revised and will be adopted in this documentation in the OpenOLAT section (in progress). The documentation of the extensions developed by the UZH OLAT project team and the UZH-specific functions can still be found in the OLAT-UZH section.
