Aim of the group

Gathering together materials and tools already developed with the purpose of homogenising them and making them suitable to act as autonomous distributed learning objects, appropriate to become building blocks for the creation of e-courses. The final task will be concerned with the development of mechanisms for incentive members of the Virtual Education Community to work in a cooperative way and make the community sustainable.
