This paper describes an approach to extend the CLAVIRE platform for sharing traditional scientific documents, data sources, executable services and 3D-visualization means for collaboration and peer review. This approach includes the development of an intellectual editor for scientific package integration into CLAVIRE, a C++ based graphical library and graphical engine “Fusion”; composite application with interaction between package and visualization tools. This means facilitating the process of sharing and presenting scientific results in a vivid and interactive manner. The considered approach was developed within the principles of research object ontologies, and with the use of the workflow-centric research object approach and method of interactive workflow. The examination of the approach was performed by evolving young scientists from cities located across Russia. At the end of the paper, the approach to rapid learning courses and resource design was developed.
