elearning projects often give most of their attention to the design of the content of the course, giving less consideration to its maintainability. By omitting this, elearning specialists do not take into account all the software maintenance activities required over time. Maintenance of software accounts for more than 80% of the cost of software over time. Changes of online courses may vary from basic text and graphic changes, editing complex animation and video, to wide-scale translation and localization requirements. Additional to content changes, many technology evolutions may be required over the life time of the course. This research intends to provide elearning specialists with an early software diagnostic model to help them in early identification of software maintainability issues during their elearning initiative. This will allow them to take proactive decisions during the development stage of an online course.
