Task 10.6.2 of FREEData JRA is aimed to develop modular interactive tools, which go beyond classical knowledge resources like books or scripts, in order to provide easier and more effective transfer of knowledge and expertise on subjects related to hydraulic laboratory practice, such as setting up an experiment or understanding and communicating data. This is in line with the recent trend in learning research community recommending thoroughly application of Web 2.0 technologies [1] [2] [3] in different aspects of knowledge management. Web 2.0, a term now widely used in the information and learning research community, refers to community-driven interactive web applications and technologies which facilitate the collaborative creation and publication of digital content in a way that any user without having expertise in web technologies like HTML, JavaScript, etc., will be able to participate in the digital content development process.
