By Olga C. Santos, Jesús G. Boticario and Emmanuelle Raffene


Abstract. UNED uses dotLRN learning management system (LMS) in two different scopes i) Exploitation and ii) Research due to the integration capabilities, adaptivity, reusability and accessibility support. The paper introduces the main features of OpenACS/dotLRN architecture and provides an historical overview of the usage of dotLRN in Innova (exploitation) and aDeNu (research) groups. It details the reasons why OpenACS/dotLRN was chosen in both groups and presents a comparison among dotLRN and other LMS, with special emphasis on Moodle (the most commonly used open source LMS) to show their pros and cons. The paper describes how it is being used in each group and what contributions have been done to the community so far
