There is a strong need for a genuinely open framework for technology enhanced learning in order to foster progress and take-up in this field. A particular problem with most ldquoe-learningrdquo support products is that they assume and encourage a model of learning which is centred on content management and information transfer - mainly because this is easily achieved through simple use of the Web. In contrast to this convenience-driven approach to e-learning development, and in order to support learning as knowledge construction, a means of distributed resource sharing is required. This moves the emphasis from content production and consumption towards interactivity and engagement. Hence the idea of using the Grid - an existing and moderately mature resource sharing framework. This paper reports on experiences with a Grid-based approach to creating a technology enhanced learning framework in the context of a European project.
