The e-learning platforms that are commercially available have been developed mainly to satisfy the needs of the industry, whose goal is the fast acquisition of competences that should be immediately re-injected in the productive process. On the other hand, universities deals with learning processes that develop themselves on a medium or a long term period, and their main mission is to help students to develop a cognitive representation of those sectors in which they are expected to operate. This is just one of the reasons that induced us to develop our own e-learning platform, "Home-University". We describe tools that use conceptual maps to manage the atomic content of this e-learning platform and to assess the conceptual learning of the students.
