This is only a start https://plone.org/community/edu but there are way more. Are you looking for a specific type of university (size? location? language?). Also see http://plone.com/success-stories - there are a few universities there.

We are actively working for University of Bologna and University of Udine, both of them are using Plone for their main website.

@keul I'd love it if you could get us screen shots and some info to put in the https://plone.org/community/edu folder, and, even better, in the http://plone.com/success-stories

For Germany (large scale deployments)

University of Marburg
TU Dresden
TU Bonn
Humboldt University Berlin
University of Giessen
University of Saarbr√ľcken
University of Freiburg

And of course every university has at least one smelly Plone server sitting under the abandoned desk of some researchers.

We are using Plone just as CMS platform for portal of our laboratory:

But our Plone-based system used for participants registration in some scientific conferences including the CERN's Annual Large Hadron Collider Physics Conference (http://lhcp2015.com).

Speaking for the UK as best as I know....

Birkbeck College, University of London http://www.bbk.ac.uk/
Many and various groups within University of Cambridge are http://www.ucs.cam.ac.uk/falcon
University of Leicester https://www2.le.ac.uk/webcentre

I also believe that Plone is used within Oxford University and the University of the Highlands and Islands
I would be surprised if there weren't more in the UK.

By the way, we used Plone platform as main entry point for our specialized Linux distribution for Russian schools -- NauLinux. Unfortunately only Russian description of this system exists now:

You may use GooglTranslate to read of this short description, but do not be fooled by GooglTranslation magic -- our system was so far from "PARADISE level" :)...

Hi @hverlade - glad you asked :slight_smile:

At University of Jyväskylä (Finland) we use Plone for our university website (since 2005), but additionally we have multiple Plone-based customised services, such as:

  • Video publishing platform Moniviestin since 2003 - also used at other universities
  • Study material portal/LMS Koppa and Avoin Koppa
  • Big amount of Plone forms used in various purposes
  • Plomino-applications - powerful, easily customizable form-like applications
  • Scientific journal review systems - heavy use of workflows and content rules
  • Payment systems: shop, payment forms, print quota payments, apply-> pay-> study at Koppa
  • Student wellness program
  • ePortfolio
  • and more

My presentation from Ploneconf 2014 and 2015 dives deeper into these cases and Plone usage
