E-learning refers the learning process in online and describes educational technology that electronically or technologically supports learning and teaching. The aim of E-learning is to select the useful piece of material which the learner actually requires to study. With the facility to connect people and information around the world, the Internet is now having a major impact on the traditional education. To support these different learning needs, the proposed work satisfies different e-learning delivery methods and implements a way to develop and manage e-learning. Recommender system improves the learning methodologies and implements collaborative filtering approach. This paper focuses collaborative recommender system that uses distributed systems in order to continuously improve e-learning courses to test the tool with several groups of external instructors and experts in order to test the usability of the tool with external users.
