The web 2.0, when meeting the virtual communities (VC), creates many issues when communities are closed, but have a great potential if they take advantage of the inheritance mechanism normally implemented in (advanced) virtual communities systems. When a community platform is in place, the system should provide a lot of basic services in order to facilitate the interaction between community’s members. However, every community has different needs, every organization that implemements a VC platform needs some special services, every now and then users or organizations request new services. So, the VC environment is very fertile in terms of personalizations / evolutions / new developments, especially in learning settings. In order to fulfill these growing requests, the developers of e-learning applications have different possibilities: a) build the personalization “from scratch” b) create new web services for the new requests c) using a mashup approach to respond to the requests. In this paper, we will explore the promising perspectives of the latter option. Mashup is an interesting approach to new data / services development, and we will investigate its perspectives in elearning field. Mashup seems to have a great appealing since it is devoted to the reusing approach that is a typical job in VC ongoing.
