A networked learning environment to support health education in five institutions was developed using XML, SQL and object databases and Zope. Paragraphs from curriculum documentation, communication tools and learning resources are assembled dynamically from distributed databases (with distributed authorship) into a unified student portal. Information can be dynamically reconfigured for different kinds of output. This paper describes the technologies and processes used to drive the printed word from web based databases.
