Ilios is a tremendously versatile tool for managing your curriculum and competency map. Among the things you can do (that you might not already know):
  • Tag individual objectives with any vocabulary term or MeSH term;
  • View visualizations of course instruction, broken down by theme, modality, and objective;
  • Create multiple competency sets for application across programs;
  • Set desired sessions as pre- and post-requisites to other in-course learning activities;
  • Copy full sessions and their objectives;
  • View a program's full competency map;
And much, much more. All these features are detailed in the online User Guide -- and you can always contact for more information and assistance.


LTI DEPLOYMENT: You can now plug the Ilios events & calendar dashboard, as well as the course manager, directly into your LTI-compatible LMS pages. It's as easy as clicking your mouse (two or three times). In order to deploy, you will need to be provided with a secure access key. Please email us for complete instructions at

To make sure you users are receiving the latest frontend code at all times, just follow the steps described here:

Though you will probably never need to deploy the Ilios 3 Frontend on your own servers, the source for the frontend code can always be found at

The changelog for updates specific to the frontend can be viewed here.
