  • Abstract


    The electronic method is useful to learn and communicate with students, and presents plethora of characteristics that can be accomplished during various situations.

    For instance, the most widespread method is to use a learning management system. Both teachers and students, they do not have to use all the resources available within the system, they can suffice with specific modules that will accomplish the intended teaching and learning objectives, but not all modules can fulfill all learning requirements.

    This study shows the features of a thorough framework to analyze the design exercise on an open source project and to outright these practices. This open source e- learning module is called Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment (Moodle), and it has many good features to be exploited. It also discusses carried out Moodle system at four universities in Iraq, it describes how the semantics for specifications offered by Moodle framework were applied on the e-learning system project at these universities to analyze the importance & satisfaction for both teachers and students.

    The quadrant analysis, gap analysis, and Cronbach's Alpha has been applied for data analysis and number of statistical tools has been used such as average value and standard deviation to accomplish the objective of this work. Data has been collected from 30 teachers and 80 students (21 to 24 years old). The results have shown great agreement from whether teachers and students on most of the tools questioned, like accessibility, searchability, and others.
