Abstract

A software evaluation model was presented that makes possible a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) based upon the original concept of Schlemmer & Fagundes (2001) and Schlemmer (2002). It was developed using the complexity paradigm as well an interactive, constructivist and systemic conception of education by distance learning and was then used to evaluate a VLE in a Brazilian university. Consideration was given to the multiple technological, communicational, social, pedagogic and managerial perspectives as well as to the application by an interdisciplinary group including users, educators, technicians and managers. This model offers support for the decision making process of choosing adequate software as a platform for distance learning.
