AbstractPart 4: Open Source in Education and Research
E-learning projects in many universities are focused on adapting or installing a software platform to upload teaching materials and sometimes to open discussion forums. However, it is totally possible to extend the learning management system (LMS) as a complete service platform for students and instructors including more advanced services. This paper shows the progressive integration of services and applications in TEC Digital as the open source e-learning platform of the Costa Rica Institute of Technology. This integration experience could be used as a case of study for other universities.
