Abstract

This chapter will discuss the influence of the main learning paradigms: conductism and constructivism. We will also talk about the need to apply the OSS development model and licences to the creation of open contents, to be also collaboratively created in communities. The social reality of OSS communities that become learning communities is described by the principles of social constructionism; this paradigm has been applied in the creation of Moodle.org, a true learning community built around the OSS learning management system: Moodle.
