The intricate construction of online educational systems lies within three principal activities: Design, Implementation and proper Post-implementation Assessment. There is not enough knowledge or experience in those aspects. Efficient execution of these three major activities necessitates the use of design and educational models to achieve the cost and time efficiency, as well as high academic quality. Utilization of online educational systems would benefit from a structured approach to design, implementation, and student's assessment. The authors propose a general formulation of model as well as a framework for finding such patterns, so that it can improve the online educational systems for both teachers and students - allowing for more accurate assessment and more effective evaluation of the learning process.
