Abstract: Web 2.0 is supposed to be the second generation of internet-based services – such as social networking sites, wikis, communication tools and folksonomies – that let people collaborate and share information online in a previously unavailable way. Currently, many leading enterprises have a strong interest in Web 2.0 and on the impact that it can have on traditional web-based applications such as e-learning, namely, e-learning 2.0. This paper analyses what the European Learning Grid Infrastructure (ELeGI) project could provide to e-learning 2.0, in terms of its vision of learning, processes, methodologies and technologies. Our preliminary investigations have raised up which results obtained in the ELeGI project can give support to e-learning 2.0 and improve some of its typical aspects and processes.
