This paper presents the AulaNet learning management system, its architecture and the collaboration model that guided its development and that was refined during this process. A case study of an online course indicates the necessity to have an architectural support for collaboration aspects and a collaboration-based engineering approach to groupware development. This approach, Groupware Engineering, is based on Software Engineering and on concepts originated in the field of CSCW.
