The aim of this paper is to present different ways of adopting and expanding an open source learning management system to facilitate learning and educational processes in the Department of Informatics of the T.E.I. of Athens. The flexibility and ease of such a system to incorporate Internet resources within the classroom and the capability of teaching beyond the classroom by providing out-of-class access to inclass assignments make it a valuable addition to a student’s and instructors tool box. Furthermore, the adopted open source technology permits the easy development of different co-operating applications, supporting important educational and administrative procedures of the Department.
