Abstract: The IMS Learning Design Specification (IMS-LD) presents new challenges to learning delivery systems. To comply with this specifi-cation, delivery platforms must understand different learning strategies and course structures, must manage multi-actor environments, must allow for standard learning objects integration, must deal with condi-tions and rules to be validated on runtime and must support notifica-tions. In this chapter, we take a look at these requirements from the view-point of an open delivery system, Explor@-2. Explor@-2 is the result of a research stream that started a decade ago at Télé-université’s LICEF research center. Explor@ has focused, right from the begin-ning, on a resource (or learning object) management orientation, mak-ing it possible to assemble a set of educational support tools, docu-ments and services to be shared across all programs, courses or activi-ties delivered by an organization. The chapter presents Explor@-2’s basic learning design information model and analyses how Explor@-2 can deal with IMS-LD compliant courses – how it can deliver units of learning modelled either with the IMS-LD level A specification or with the IMS-LD level B or C specifications. The chapter ends with some conclusions on future research and development to be done in order to build a fully IMS-LD compliant delivery system as well as on some promising directions for developing powerful and adaptive dis-tance learning environments.
