TAO/E-Learning environments


E-Learning environmentsEdit

E-Learning environments pool different E-Learning technologies and processes in one system. They could also called Virtual Learning Environments, Learning Management Systems or Course Management Systems. In contrast to real-time communication (see prev. chapters) in this more generalized class of systems there may also be asynchronous tools and methods, like wikis, course material, automated assessment systems, etc.


Moodle[1] is a open source application which can used to create effective online learning sites for online collaboration.


ILIAS[2] is also a open sourcesoftware for web-based teaching and e-learning. It is a multi-purpose tool that can be used as a flexible course player, as an authoring tool, but also as a communication and collaboration platform.
