    Until recent years network-based education and grid technologies were two distinct areas. But e-learning systems have been increasingly addressing learning resources sharing (text, images, video, on-line data, etc.) and reuse, interoperability and other more different modes of interactions. E-learning systems consist of complex activities and most of them have been designed based on client-server or peer to peer, and recently web services architecture. These systems have major drawback because of their limitations in scalability, availability, distribution of computing power and storage systems, as well as sharing information between users that contribute to these systems. In this context the use of grid technology reveals its utility and availability, as scalable, flexible coordinated and secure resource sharing among geographically distributed individuals or institutions, in the perspective of e-learning.
