Abstract: The purpose of the study is to investigate the usability and performance of a Greek University Learning Management System (Open eClass). An online evaluation questionnaire was created for the survey. The questionnaire was completed by 280 students from 4 colleges at the university. The analysis revealed that the renewal of the Open eClass platform by the teaching staff is a criterion for the accuracy of its content. The majority of participants proposed the addition of information related to the structure and content of the curricula, as they consider that the existing information is not sufficient. This study provides useful information to Open eClass content managers and members of the teaching staff to improve the content of their lessons and thus contribute to the improvement of the learning process both of this university and other universities that may use these conclusions to improve the Open eClass platform or any other integrated learning management system.
