Abstract: 
"The adoption of Adaptive Educational Hypermedia Systems into real world teaching has been poor so far. One of the reasons behind this is believed to be due to their architectural design failing to answer the overall needs of Web-enhanced learning. On the other hand, Web 2.0 emerging technologies are transforming the whole field of e-Learning into one known as """"e-Learning 2.0"""". In this new generation, the learning process becomes a social and collaborative activity. Modern Learning Management Systems (LMS) provide the tools and the environment to enable this social learning. WHURLE 2.0 [1] was proposed as an adaptive LMS framework that allows adaptation functionality to be integrated with a modern LMS, by transforming its overall architecture into a distributed Web service. This paper takes the conceptual framework further by stressing its links with some of the Web 2.0 tools and showing this through an implementation that combines the Web 2.0 social aspects from Moodle as an LMS with the adaptation functionality. © 2008 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg."""
