In software engineering, a web application is an application delivered to users from a web server over a network such as the World Wide Web or an intranet. Web applications are popular due to the ubiquity of the web browser as a client, sometimes called a thin client. The Claroline platform is an eLearning and eWorking web application, allowing teachers to build effective online courses and to manage learning and collaborative activities on the web. Also, Claroline is Open Source software; therefore the platform can be modified, so we can extend or improve its functionality. A module is an installable package that adds either new restrictions or functionalities to the Claroline platform. Foditic is a website that uses an old release of the Claroline platform, modified to add new functionalities, improving the nature of the learning material itself. Two new Claroline modules have been created. They contain the new Foditic functions implemented to extend the functionality of the platform, adapted for unmodified Claroline servers. Thus, current and future releases of Claroline can be installed anywhere with the new features and enhancements that Foditic has contributed to its own website.
