This paper identifies four criteria for systems that aim at supporting learning communities in university courses, and describes the web-based environment iPAL (internet Portal to Augment Learning) that addresses these criteria in an integrated manner. The iPAL environment extends a freely available content management system through some self-developed components. Practical experiences with the system are outlined, and a first evaluation is given.
