eduComponents: A Component-Based E-Learning Environment

In: ITiCSE '07: Proceedings of the 12th annual SIGCSE conference on Innovation and technology in computer science education. ACM Press, New York, NY, USA, pages 352--352.

We present the eduComponents, a component-based approach to e-learning system architecture. In contrast to typical “integrated” platforms, the eduComponents are implemented as extension modules for a general-purpose content management system (CMS). The components can be used individually, together, and in combination with other modules. The use of a general-purpose (i.e., not e-learning-specific) CMS means that a single platform can be used for e-learning and other Web content, providing the advantages of a uniform user interface, reduced system administration overhead, and extensive code reuse.
