In the paper, we present DIEL, an application that makes a mixed use of a number of multimedia sources to enrich a well-known elearning platform, Moodle. DIEL exploits the social translucence concept in order to create a virtual and dynamic learning space where community members can easily interact while implementing any social constructivist learning paradigm. Moreover, an audio-video chat is as well seamlessly integrated, to serve as an orthogonal support for collaboration, for "face-to-face-like" interactions. The combination of the two approaches benefits the users' experience in the exploitation of proximity relationships with respect to other users and resources, to simplify and stimulate collaborative activities.
