Welcome to the LAMS 2.0 Development Wiki


Hi there. My name is Dolly the lamb and I'm the official mascot of the LAMS 2.0 project.

On this Wiki you can find all development information about LAMS 2.0 development. If you are not familiar with LAMS, please read this site for more info on LAMS.  If you are looking information about earlier version of LAMS, please visit the LAMS Foundation


     LAMS 2.0 is now currently Release Candidate 1 (as of October 5th, 2006).

Have a look at the development status and list of features.



LAMS 2.0RC1 has a Windows Installer. You can also build LAMS manually.

The LAMS 2.0 Stable release is expected to be delivered by the end of October 2006. More information is available at the bug tracker and in further announcements are posted in LAMS Community.

See Roadmap information for LAMS in the future.

About this Wiki

What is this Wiki for?

This wiki is for the technical discussion and development of the new version of LAMS (Learning Activity Management System): LAMS 2.0 or Dolly. For information on previous versions of LAMS (1.0.x) please see the LAMS Foundation website.

If you are looking for LAMS support, see the LAMS Community, the global online community for all teachers, administrators and developers that use LAMS or LAMS International for commercial support and hosting services.

Is this Wiki for me?

This wiki will be of interest only to people who are developing LAMS source code or are interested in the architecture used in LAMS 2.0.

Like most wikis, we add to the wiki as we think of it and bits of it will be out of date.

Interested in learning about developing LAMS? Start with the Overview. The Glossary of Terms is a handy reference to what we mean when we say "learning design", "activity", "tool session" and so on. When you are ready to start programming, consult Building LAMS and the Tool Contract.

What are the features of LAMS 2.0 and what's the current development status?

LAMS 2.0 has a new architecture as well as vast number of new features and improvements. This page will give you an up-to-date status of the project as well as show you animations (winks) and pictures on our alpha version of LAMS 2.0.

I know there was something somewhere on blah. How do I find it?

Having trouble trying to find something? Try the following tips:

  • Use Quick Search (up in the right top corner). Try a few different spellings - most of our wiki writers are in Australia so there is a mix of Australian spellings and US spellings. So for "internationalization" you will need to also try "internationalisation".
  • Make sure you have child pages showing. At the bottom of the page (above comments), look for the Children section. If it is not displayed, look for an entry like "10 children". If you see "n children" then click on this link to display all the children of a page.
