Tremendous changes in information technology and the Internet as whole have revolutionaljsed many application areas, among which F-learning is a key achievement. The department of distance learning at KIU was the orthodox method of education delivery to various students in various localities. The collaborative E-learning system presented in this report provides an incentive that students can enroll and register for E-learning programs. These are scheduled periodically giving room for more students’ admission s to those who can’t physically come to atttend classes at the compass. En addition, it is significant that the scope of admission is widened by admission and consequently, more revenue will accrue if such a system is operationalised. In this era of echnology, the system brings with it many benefits as the following script presents. ~he development used Object-Oriented System Analysis and Design (OOSAD) approach along vith the power of modeling as emphasized by Model Driven Architecture (MDA). Unified 4odeling Language (UML) was mainly used in both cases. Development made use of open ource sofiware. For context specific development, participatory action research methodology ias adopted and the inputs were well presented in developing an E-Learning Management ystem (e-LMS). Customization of an open source Learning Management System (LMS) [atforms was employed to help generate a timely solution to E-LMS development. x
