Towards a Generalized Architecture for the Integration of Tools in LMSs

Jorge Fontenla Gonzalez, Manuel Caeiro Rodriguez, Martin Llamas Nistal


In this article we introduce the main components of a generalized architecture to facilitate the integration of tools in LMSs. This proposal tries to improve the reuse possibilities of the tools in e-learning systems. Reusability has been suggested as a key solution to reduce the high costs of the development of educational experiences in e-learning systems. Up to now, reutilization has focused mainly on the educational contents around metadata standards, contents formats, packaging systems, etc. However, educational practices usually involve tools to facilitate the communication, collaboration and work of students and teachers as well. This proposal is part of a wider solution based on the language PoEML, in which not only the possibility of the inclusion of tools in LMSs is considered, but also the management of its utilization.
