Abstract: Nowadays, technology simplifies the learning process and assists in the communication between learners, lecturers, and administrators of universities and other educational organisations. At present, most of the universities in Somalia still use the face-to-face teaching approach and lecturers do not have an electronic repository for the learning materials. This demonstrates that an e-Learning model that is able to fulfil the users’ requirements is lacking. This shortcoming is addressed in this study by developing a requirements model for an e-Learning Management System (eLMS) to improve the quality of the learning process. To achieve this objective, a design research methodology was adopted. During the modelling process, the Web Application Extension (WAE) for the Unified Modeling Language (UML) model was used to design the requirements model for the proposed eLMS. The significance of this model is that it facilitates the interaction between students, lecturers, and administrators, thus enhancing the learning process at the university. In addition, the proposed model will be a useful reference for other researchers working in a similar domain, or for developers who are interested in developing similar models. Additionally, the expected output of this research is the eLMS system that will enable students, lecturers, and administrators to communicate with each other.
