Abstract: This study presents an ongoing study on the development of an e-Learning scheme in a particular higher institution in Nigeria. e-Learning is an evolving technology that has become a new paradigm for delivering online and distance learning programmes to users. However, the strength of recent e-Learning systems lies in the emergence of web 2.0 tools which have influenced e-Learning systems in terms of pedagogy and delivery. Researchers introduce an evolutionary software modeling in developing an e-Learning platform. The study argues that rather than developing a model with distinct phases and components that make it difficult to respond to changing users requirements, the development should be broken down into increments with required users� priority for later increments. This approach further increase efficiency and flexibility of the development as well as quality and reusability of the results. Researchers conclude that if the scheme is fully integrated, limitations of the traditional system of learning will be eradicated in the institution of the case study and other institutions interested in adopting the scheme.
