Interact Learning Community Environment: Interact is an Online Learning and Collaboration platform developed by the Christchurch College of Education, New Zealand. It is an open source online community environment designed with the intention of making it easy for people to interact online, based around constructivist and vygotskian views of learning. The key advantage of Interact is the ability to structure a learning space the way you want it, rather than being stuck with a predefined separation of content and interaction. The user starts off with a blank slate and can build their site up anyway they see fit using a selection of ‘Components’ There is no preset structure that forces the user into any set pedagogy.

SourceForge.net: interact. ‘A platform for the delivery and support of online learning. It differs from many other elearning platforms in that its aim is to concentrate on the social/interactive aspects of teaching and learning rather than the delivery of content to students.’
