I just read it and I will add a ticket (or maybe more to split the
ideas) to lighthouse. We will probably talk about this early this week
when we meet in person. A few things that crossed my mind after
reading that wiki page.

Lernanta can be seen from different angles (e.g., a tool to support
peer learning, a tool to support research about peer learning).
Depending in how we want to use Lernanta the design could be
different. Independently of how you use Lernanta we will probably
interact with many external services (as Etherpad, wiki, chat, Big
Blue Button, blogs, ...), but the interaction with this services will
vary if the objective is to support peer learning or support research
about peer learning. In order to support peer learning having a course
with links and the necessary status updates (so people visit this
links only when necessary) could be sufficient for many of the
external services. However, from a research perspective having all the
data (or as much data as possible) in the same place is highly useful.

One thing I will like to know is how much weight to put (in terms of
priorities) to this two use cases.
