AbstractThe NZ Open Source Virtual Learning Environment Project is the implementation of e-learning content creation tools and an open source virtual learning environment (VLE) for use by a group of tertiary education organisations throughout New Zealand. The project team will adopt and contribute to e-learning application software from active open source communities. The principal goal of the project is to collaboratively establish an e-learning platform that minimises the financial, organisational, and technological barriers to sharing resources across New Zealand's education sector. The platform adopts a flexible technical architecture appropriate for a dynamic environment, in which individual application components use open standards and are independent, modular, and extendable. This paper is intended to accompany a short demonstration of the platform.
