Abstract

This paper is working towards defining requirements and integration architectures supporting interoperability of hybrid e-learning solutions in higher-education institutions. Effective learning- content authoring scenarios ask for interoperable software solutions to seamlessly integrate existing e-learning infrastructures and legacy tools with modern innovative tools. Above all, these tools and platforms have to be cognitively efficient to handle, so that non-computer scientists like teachers and scholars may use them without having to dive too deeply into the challenges of learning about information technologies. The need for easy to learn and use, cognitive efficient and at the same time technically interoperable and transparently usable tools to support learning-content creation can be fulfilled by developing authoring software. We introduce our approach of developing a software solution that will bridge the gaps between an up-to date Moodle platform, and existing infrastructures by embedding long-established legacy via LTI - and beyond - to Moodle.
