Abstract. The design and development of contemporary Learning Management
Systems (LMS), is largely focused on satisfying functional requirements, rather
than quality requirements, thus resulting in inefficient systems of poor software
and business quality. In order to remedy this problem there is a research trend
into specifying and evaluating software architectures for LMS, since quality at-
tributes in a system depend profoundly on its architecture. This paper presents a
case study of appraising the software architecture of a Learning Management
through experience-based assessment and the use of an architectural prototype.
