Abstract: Over the last decade, e-Learning and in particular Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) needs have been evolving accordingly with more and more demanding pedagogical and technological requirements. As a result, high customization and flexibility are a must in this context, meaning that collaborative learning practices need to be continuously adapted, adjusted, and personalized to each specific target learning group. These very demanding needs of the CSCL domain represent a great challenge for the research community on software development to satisfy. This contribution proposes a innovative approach in the form of a generic software infrastructure called Collaborative Learning Purpose Library (CLPL) with the aim of meeting the current and emanding needs found in the CSCL domain. To this end, we propose an advanced reuse-based service-oriented software engineering methodology for developing CSCL applications in an effective and timely fashion. A validation process is provided by reporting the use of the CLPL platform as the primary resource for the Master's thesis courses at the Open University of Catalonia when developing complex software in the CSCL domain. The ultimate aim of this research is to yield effective CSCL software systems capable of supporting and enhancing the current on-line collaborative learning practices.
