CLEI Electronic Journal
Learning Management System (LMS) development has become a high priority project for educational institutions and organizations, as it provides the virtual environment for online education. Acquiring and deploying a LMS is a difficult task that involves risks related with costs and time. The goal of this research in progress is to introduce an extension in the Rational Unified Process (RUP) in order to integrate the activities of selection and evaluation of LMS into this process framework. The
... ss framework. The additions of these activities in the RUP, improve the quality of the selection process, obtaining a feasible candidate solution that ensure the exposing mismatches and negotiating tradeoffs among the critical use cases and non-functional requirements, architectural and design constraints, project management constraints and risks. These activities are inserted in the Analysis and Design Discipline during the initial stages of the project. A case study is presented, implementing and deploying a LMS in an organization.
