The eNLVM is an NSF-funded project to extend and enhance the NLVM by developing:

Adaptation Tools Adaptation Tools
Teachers can modify lessons and activities in the eNLVM to tailor them to the needs of their students. Options for customization include modifying, creating, reorganizing, and deleting activities, instructions, questions, and applet configurations.

Teachers can share materials with others so that they can collaboratively develop them. In addition, users can publish materials so that others can copy and adapt them. When new versions are published, users that have made copies are notified so that they can retrieve the updates.
