In technical education and training it is particularly important not only to transfer theoretical knowledge, but also to offer the opportunity to apply and reinforce it directly in practice. Festo Learning Experience (Festo LX) is our innovative, digital learning portal that opens the door to a new way of learning. Festo LX takes a comprehensive approach to technical education and training by providing access to extensive, professionally prepared learning content and suitable practical applications Thanks to the smart combination of eLearning courses and practical exercises, students can be sure that they will be ready for working in today's and tomorrow's high-tech industry. Find out more about our Festo LX digital learning portal now and choose the licence that suits your requirements.
Discover digital learning that is specific to each and every individual
There are different licensing models for Festo LX. A distinction is made between Festo LX Basic and Festo LX Lite, depending on how and how extensively Festo LX will be used. Festo LX is used as the learning platform for both options. Depending on the licence you choose, you have access to all or only certain learning content and features.
If you already have your own learning platform, you can also make Festo LX courses available on your learning platform by using content integration. Please note that only the selected content is integrated into the existing learning platform – you cannot access the features of Festo LX (e.g., customizing existing contents or creating your own).

With Festo LX Single Sign-On (only available with Basic and Lite), your employees can log into Festo LX with their existing company account and do not have to create an additional account.
Festo LX features
Festo LX provides teachers and students with a variety of different features that make learning easier.
Festo LX offers a high degree of personalisation so that students are taught exactly the knowledge they need. The Festo LX courses follow the so-called nugget concept. Nuggets are small, self-contained training modules that make learning specific and effective. Nuggets are usually designed with a combination of text, images, videos, animations, links and other interactive elements. Several nuggets can be combined to create a course for a particular topic and to convey specific content.
The LX Creator makes individual learning even easier. You can work through existing learning nuggets and courses quickly and easily and even generate your own content. The LX Creator offers the same look and feel of the Festo Didactic content. This provides students with a consistent learning experience without a visual break and makes it much easier for teachers to create content.
Learning paths are made up of a combination of different courses on a specific topic or professional field. They provide structures and recommendations for the best possible order in which courses should be completed. Our learning paths are based on our expertise in training and education as well as on national occupational profiles and curriculum frameworks. The learning paths can be revised and created in the same way as courses with the LX Creator.
Equipment Management lets you add and manage existing learning hardware in Festo LX. You can see at a glance what equipment and how many items of this equipment are available in the organisation. Suitable courses and learning nuggets are suggested based on the existing learning hardware. Non-Festo equipment can also be created in Festo LX, and is managed and added as the hardware needed for in-house developed nuggets.
The Festo LX learning library comprises more than 600 courses on technical education and training topics. For more information, see the sections on "Course content in Festo LX" and "Course formats in Festo LX".
Thanks to the integrated evaluations in Festo LX, knowledge tests can be automatically carried out and evaluated. It is possible to set a specific time frame and the number of questions that have to be answered correctly in order to pass.
With Connected Learning, Festo LX offers direct communication and interaction between the hardware and the learning content. This is how complex technical correlations are represented using visible signal flows, parameters are adjusted immediately, virtual instruments are applied and troubleshooting exercises are carried out.
Festo LX enables teachers to monitor the learning progress and success of their students. This how you can see at a glance how the individual learning groups are progressing and which students still need specific support with a topic. You can export the learning outcomes for individuals and groups in an editable format.
If you already have your own learning platform, you can easily integrate Festo LX content into an existing system, giving you access to the valuable Festo LX content without having to resort to an additional learning portal.
Festo LX offers a wide range of different learning contents for many areas of technical education and training, from factory automation and fluid engineering to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0, as well as electrical engineering, process automation, renewable energy and STEM. The learning content available on Festo LX is constantly revised and expanded to meet educational needs.
Having a range of different learning formats is crucial in order to make the lessons as effective and varied as possible. Festo LX provides a wide choice of options for presenting and transferring training content.
The training content of our eLearning courses is designed to be interactive and usually has a storytelling approach and a speaker who guides students through the course. These courses are particularly suitable as an introduction to new topics and provide a high-level overview. Best of all, you only need a tablet, laptop or smartphone with an Internet connection to complete the courses.
Our eLab courses offer a wide range of hardware-related learning content, which is taught either using Festo Didactic equipment or simulation software. The courses include several exercises that are selected by a teacher dependent on the required learning outcomes. Our associated learning systems are required to complete the courses. Our eLab courses are designed to put previously learned theoretical knowledge to the test with practical tasks.
Our eTheory courses offer a wide range of hardware-independent training content on technical topics. Compared to eLearning courses, they usually convey a broader range of knowledge.
Our evaluations are used to check the students' prior knowledge or their progress on a particular topic. This is done using a catalogue with predefined questions. These must be completed in a certain amount of time and a specific number of questions must be answered correctly in order to pass These values are set by the teachers and adjusted to the level of difficulty as required.
Our simulations guide the students to carry out practical and safe experiments that have no impact on real processes. The simulations offer a cost-effective supplement to the learning process as there is no need to purchase additional learning equipment.
In our tutorial videos, experts present complex topics in a simple way. The videos provide easy to understand and practical explanations of current topics that fit within the scope of the technical training, enabling fast and effective learning
We are constantly developing and improving the available content on Festo LX together with valuable partners. For example, we have already worked together with renowned partners to develop courses that meet the requirements and competencies demanded by industry even more closely.
ISO GPS (GPS = Geometrical Product Specification) has been the standard for a globally uniform, unambiguous geometrical language since 2022. This standard ensures that technical drawings have a clear description, thus avoiding the need for clarifications during subsequent implementation. Everyone involved in the creation and implementation of technical drawings must therefore be brought up to the same level so that the methodology and regulations can be correctly applied and interpreted. To close this knowledge gap among employees in design, quality assurance and production departments, Festo Didactic and Mahr have developed a joint learning program to familiarise employees in these areas with the basic knowledge of the ISO GPS standard.
