In this chapter, we have argued that e-learning and learning management systems on the one hand and grid computing on the other, which have been considered and developed separately in the past, can fruitfully be brought together, in particular for applications or learning scenarios where either high computational power is needed or the tool sets on which learning should be done are too expensive to be given out to each and every learner. Beyond making a case for its feasibility and more importantly, we have outlined in detail an architecture for an e-learning grid which integrates core grid middleware and LMS functionality appropriately. Finally, we have indicated how an e-learning grid could be realized on the basis of suitably designed grid learning objects.
