Abstract

In this paper we describe how e-learning systems in the Bergen region of Norway have developed, from early learning environments such as “Gudmundstad” and “Reidar” systems in the nineties towards to “It’s learning” and “The Dynamic Presentation Generator” (DPG) systems of today. At the beginning of this decade a new learning system was developed as a continuation of its for-runners. This system, “It’s learning”, has been a great success with the foundation of the company “It Solutions”. It’s learning” is now used in many universities and colleges in our country and abroad. A new learning system, the “Dynamic Presentation Generator” (DPG) system, is now being developed at the University of Bergen. The most important aspect of this system is the decoupling of content from the formatting. This means in an educational context that the system offers reuse of content and presentation patterns for developing continually online courses.
