TEAM: Using the Grid to Enhance e-Learning Environments

(WCGA 2004)

Effective e-learning distributed environments should promote high cooperation. Workflow techniques can certainly contribute to such effectiveness. Reusable Learning Objects (RLOs or LOs) also play an important role in this context as learning content is broken into smaller parts to facilitate deployment and execution assignment. Additionally, some LOs may require high levels of computation as in the case of simulations in Hemodynamics in a Fluid Mechanics course. In order to cope with such an application, we envisioned a workflow-based Learning Management System (LMS) using web services as the communication infrastructure allied to the computational power of the Grid.
