This chapter emphasizes the variety of today’s e-learning systems. They have both positive and negative characteristics. Several useful tools are common for these systems. The main part of this chapter contains a detailed description of e-learning systems and their tools. If a system is appropriate for the needs of the learner then it has more intelligent behavior and its tools are more specialized. Some systems have separate tools that act as standalone applications. Others contain built in tools. In this chapter, the e-learning tools are grouped by their functions. Owing to standardization efforts, the differences between the e-learning tools become their advantages, and the e-learning systems become interoperable. The intelligent learning management systems (ILMS) become a new way to integrate the benefits of the different e-learning systems. At the end of the chapter there is a short description of an ILMS named Multitutor. This represents a possible way of future e-learning systems development.
