Theories of design take an approach, which is either algorithmic (systematic) or axiomatic. Algorithmic approaches define a procedure to be followed during the design process. Axiomatic approaches define general rules that are applicable at each decision-making step in the process irrespective of the procedure used. In this paper, the aim is to rea...

Different approaches regarding the benefits expected from the implementation of a Learning Management System (LMS) are available in the literature for Bachelor (BSc) or Master Degree (MSc), but this project focus on PhD level. As there are significant differences between a PhD programme against BSc and MSc, the objective goes with the identification of main actors and their roles, with the definition of associated opportunities and risks to be accounted by an LMS to foster the success in compliance with PhD programme requirements and conformity in scientific research outcomes.
