AbstractThe e-learning 1.0 is no longer suitable for today’s generation as it creates boredom and lack of understanding. The knowledge sharing process through the existence of social element is supported by technology web 2.0. This means we are looking at the use of an e-learning system which is more open. Realizing the benefits, most e-learning systems are competing to transform from the e-learning 1.0 and content centric to e-learning 2.0. However, to be considered as one of the true e-learning 2.0 system, a research must be done. This paper discusses on the features of e-learning 2.0. To represent the features, an analysis of the earlier models as well as latest versions of Moodle e-learning system was conducted. The version being compared is Moodle version 1.9 and 2.1 to see the revolution of the system. Documents related to this topic are also collected and analyzed. There are about 21 features of Moodle identified in the finding of this paper, when comparing available e-learning 2.0 systems. It shows how the features in elearning 2.0 systems address the deficiencies in earlier version of the e-learning system and gives strong reasons for the full utilization of e-learning 2.0. Thus, more of the existing e-learning system should make a move towards the transformation and fully utilize the technology of web 2.0.
