With the upcoming features of Web 2.0 current eLearning solutions, mostly characterized by single user and centered data-download, change and develop further. The traditional paradigm of classroom teaching and learning is broadened towards sharing experiences and knowledge in word-wide social communities. Furthermore, knowledge capturing in ambient environments gains more importance and the use of mobile devices has created rich and exciting learning opportunities. These aspects characterize the so-called eLearning 2.0. Different aspects of this paradigm shift are presented in this paper and the European Community supported UNITE project as an application case is offered. The technical aspects of the platform development cycle are provided and its enhanced eKnowledge repositories are addressed. The UNITE system implementation in the setting of one of the European-wide network of schools is presented as an iterative four-stage-process, the achieved results are discussed and future work is proposed.
