Abstract: The prodigious growth of internet as an environment for learning has led to the development of enormous sites to offer knowledge to the novices in an efficient manner. However, evaluating the quality of those sites is a substantial task. With that concern, this study attempts to evaluate the quality measures for enhancing the site design and contents of an e-Learning framework, as it relates to information retrieval over the internet. Moreover, the proposal explores two main processes. Firstly, evaluating a website quality with the defined high-level quality metrics such as accuracy, feasibility, utility and propriety using Website Quality Assessment Model (WQAM) and secondly, developing an e-Learning framework with improved quality. Specifically, the quality metrics are analyzed with the feedback compliance obtained through a Questionnaire Sample (QS). By which the area of the website that requires improvement can be identified and then a new e-Learning framework has been developed with the incorporation of those enhancements.
