During the last years e-learning systems have become mission-critical for many universities and companies. In the commercial sector, there is no longer a clear separation between systems for knowledge management and e-learning. At universities, the latter have grown beyond being experimental installations used by small groups of researchers and teachers. Instead, large scale installations serve all students and teachers of an entire university making the e-learning system an important infrastructure. In currently used e-learning applications the authenticity of grades entered into and the log files created by the system are often not trustworthy due to a lack of security precautions. However, most users are not aware of these security flaws and the threats they entail. While transaction logging, audit trails and non-repudiation are well-established concepts used for IT systems in the financial industry, e-learning systems do not address these issues at all. In this talk we will look at simple ways to improve accountability in e-learning.
