Stanford Training and Registration System (STARS)


The Stanford Training And Registration System (STARS) is Stanford's implementation of PeopleSoft's Enterprise Learning Management System. A single system for learners, managers, instructors, and administrators, STARS provides a centralized University-wide tracking tool for delivering and tracking professional development, personal development and compliance training.

STARS uses web services and industry standards, and complies with SCORM 1.2 and AICC standards to ensure the ability of learning providers to include a wide variety of content into learning courses and programs. STARS integrates with other Oracle applications.
