    Today, it is almost impossible to imagine distance education without the use of numerous software systems, technologies, specifications and standards. Industry, to be able to develop and maintain "learning" systems effectively and yet to have commercially successful business models, limits the overall learning landscape, by fixing learning to a predetermined set of activities, communities, sources of information, and educational services. Simply, one solution does not fit all the problems and no one can predict the needs that may rise in different learning contexts.
