E-learning has increased on importance as people realize that the use of technology can improve learning. Consequently, new e-learning environments have been proposed and developed. However, in general they are oriented to address a specific e-learning functionality and, in most of the cases, they are not developed to interoperate with other e-learning tools or environments. This fact hinders the assemblage of existing e-learning services and components in a fully functional tailored e learning environment. The work described in this paper proposes a general architecture for e-learning environments defined in terms of software components. The goal of this proposal is to allow the generation of configured, flexible and tailored e-learning systems, through the composition of services, using a minimum number of interoperable components.
