E-learning has increased on importance as people realize
that the use of technology can improve learning.
Consequently, new e-learning environments have been
proposed and developed. However, in general they are
oriented to address a specific e-learning functionality and,
in most of the cases, they are not developed to
interoperate with other e-learning tools or environments.
This fact hinders the assemblage of existing e-learning
services and components in a fully functional tailored e
learning environment. The work described in this paper
proposes a general architecture for e-learning
environments defined in terms of software components.
The goal of this proposal is to allow the generation of
configured, flexible and tailored e-learning systems,
through the composition of services, using a minimum
number of interoperable components.
