This paper reports on recent developments of the LOGOS GAIAS Project. The LOGOS GAIAS project aims at providing material and technologies for developing language competence in the area of integrated landscape development in Europe. The authors introduce GYMN@ZILLA, a browser-like application which integrates existing educational and non-educational modules in a new didactic environment. GYMN@ZILLA allows to access documents from the Internet or the LOGOS GAIAS repository and to convert its text into an easy reader text, a glossary or a completion exercise. The authors show how the combination of content modules and procedural modules allows the rapid development of a platform with new pedagogic characteristics. The results are promising for the flexibility of the learning material, importance of the topics and for enhanced learner motivation.
