Abstract: 
"""The success of recent Web 2.0 platforms shows that people share information and resources within their social community and beyond. The use of these platforms in an e-learning context has been limited, though. One reason for this is the fact that most of these platforms only support specific media types, and teachers trying to assemble learning resources have to login to and use several Web 2.0 tools at once to access all relevant resources. In this paper, we present LearnWeb2.0, an integrated environment we implemented for sharing Web 2.0 resources, which improves support for learners and educators in sharing, discovering, and managing learning resources distributed across different platforms. LearnWeb2.0 integrates ten popular resource sharing and social networking systems, and provides advanced features for organizing and sharing distributed learning resources in a collaborative environment. © 2009 Springer Berlin Heidelberg."""
