This paper presents an architecture for the support of dynamic learning activities and its implementation in the GLIDE prototype. the learning courses are dynamically determined at runtime based on the available tools, devices, and situational context of a learner by using abstract descriptions of learning scenarios and the conceptual mapping of abstract activities to concrete learning support tools This is facilitated by the usage of grid service technology, e-Learning standards, and mechanisms to guarantee semantic interoperability of learning outcomes across various tools and learning activities.
