AstroGrid as an e-Learning Environment

Abstract : We present the concept of the Virtual Observatory through the AstroGrid project, which is a Virtual Organization making intensive use of the Internet to produce a working data-grid for Astronomical applications. AstroGrid has implemented a series of tools which facilitate collaborative work such as news, forum and discussion pages, all of them inspired by the open source and licensing philosophy. Additionally we explore how such an Astronomical Grid project can be used in the future as an e-Learning service platform and as a tool for a much wider audience than researchers and astronomers, such as students and the wider public interested in this area.
