Abstract [en]

Different types of Virtual Learning Environments (VLE) have evolved and there is a steady ongoing progression of different concepts. During the last 10-15 years Learning Management Systems have dominated. Learning Management Systems are often presented as the solution for a range of educational needs. This paper presents a study of a mashup approach to the VLE using web widgets. A prototype was developed and discussed, covering technological aspects such as modularity, integration and adaptability as well as some pedagogical aspects, such as pedagogical flexibility and technological responsiveness.
