Modern e-Learning Systems (eLS) are expected to be innovative not only concerning comprehensive representation of content enriched by multimedia, but also in the integration of learning situations in contexts suitable for students. Suitable, motivating contexts can be “fun” as found in strategic games or business simulations or of a more “serious” variety in the form of virtual data labs. In the new BMBF Project EMILeAstat (e-stat) 13 partners from different organisations are cooperating to construct such an innovative intelligent web based training (I-WBT) system for applied statistics. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research finances e-stat by means of the NMB funding program “Neue Medien in der Bildung” (New Media in Education). Special emphasis is placed on reuse and sharing of contents, clean separation of factual contents and its didactical motivated presentation, as well as the avoidance of proprietary solutions. E-stat is an attempt to go beyond the scope of existing WBT systems by using a strong integrating concept in combining content with a high diversity of methodical and didactical approaches. This ambitious approach creates the need for new research and evaluation. For example, a method for the presentation of coherent and user-adaptive content (learning objects) supplied by a variety of sources has to be found. The development of an eLS can be approached from different angles. This paper describes the architecture of e-stat from a knowledge and content engineering point of view, while applying cognitive-science criteria where necessary. All components were developed in a close cooperation with the statistical content providers.
