Abstract: The emergence of the Web 2.0 technologies in the last years have changed the way people interact with knowledge. Services for cooperation and collaboration have placed the user in the centre of a new knowledge building space. The development of new second generation learning environments can benefit from the potential of these Web 2.0 services when applied to an educational context. We propose a methodology for designing learning environments that relates Web 2.0 services with the functional requirements of these environments. In particular, we concentrate on the design of the KRSM system to discuss the components of this methodology and its application.

Keywords: Web 2.0 services; knowledge resource systems; knowledge management; KRSM; activity context; knowledge resource; knowledge sharing; learning environments; e-learning; online learning; electronic learning.
