Abstract

Today, the LMS systems require some reengineering works or some additional design approaches because their uses have releaved many difficulties. The teachers-designers meet some obstacles when designing their learning scenarios. In this paper, we propose an LMS centered instructional design approach. This approach is based on the specific instructional language of the LMS system. It focuses on an original process for the identification and the formalization of the instructional language of LMS systems. This process takes into account two complementary viewpoints: the user-centered viewpoint based on the Human Machine Interfaces (HMI) analysis and the techno-centered viewpoint primarily based on the database analysis. We illustrate this process by an example of experimentation conducted on Moodle platform.
