E-learning has been practiced for over last two decades, and thanks to Internet penetration and free software it has spread all over the world. EMS is nowadays available everywhere from high schools to high educational universities.

Web 2.0 has the potential to cover the lack of research collaboration with tools that includes collaboration, knowledge sharing and consequently collaborative learning. This paper reviews some frameworks of eLearning and introduces a new functional framework that aims to facilitate eLearning with research support embedded functionality.
