Abstract

An e-learning environment is built on digital infrastructure. Boettcher and Kumar (2000) noted that, as with our physical infrastructure, this digital infrastructure needs to be designed, planned, built, maintained, and staffed. Rosenberg (2001) states that e-learning infrastructure is based on an institution’s technological capabilities to deliver and manage e-learning. Therefore, it should be based on an architecture that depends on open, published standards, reusability of components, serviceability, and maintainability.
