Content development plays a key role in e-learning. Designing of content with good interactivity is essential for an effective teaching and learning system. Development of such an interactive content is not an easy task for the instructors. It requires a collaborative work among experts from various fields. This paper suggests the use of patterns for providing solutions for e-learning content development. Three types of patterns and also the problems for which these patterns can be deployed are discussed in detail. The constructive templates that are used for implementing the proposed patterns are also presented. Each pattern is illustrated with example instances, which are created by using the constructive templates. The paper concludes with a discussion on a web-based pattern database application, which can be used to store all the recognized patterns. It is expected that this research project will lead to the development of a new e-learning authoring tool, which uses patterns as its metaphor.
