Abstract: 
At present, and with the invent of new digital technologies, the Virtual University of Tunis (VUT) as all Virtual universities around the world continues to develop learning programs supported by devices E- learning. This raises the development of techno-educational engineering learning systems (LS) online "online courses" (Paquette, 2002) focused on the model (ADDIE) (Basque, 2004). It is in an E-learning environment supported by the VUT, which we present in this article an experience design and evaluation of online learning systems "online courses" addressing the concept of biology "photoperiod its role in the control of reproduction of goats". The analysis of data from a questionnaire delivered online, 35 first year students of Master in food via the Forms application from Google Drive, highlights constraints to learning related to the communicational interactions with chat and discussion forum and planning, the shortcomings of feedback from the teacher, incompetence in using the tools of the platform, etc. Moreover, through this investigation, learners participated in the improvement of deficient aspects of (LS) online by communicating their proposals for solutions to the difficulties already enacted (introduce some digital planning tools of synchronous and asynchronous meetings, enhance training in the use of digital tools of the platform, valuing the contributions of synchronous and asynchronous discussions in boosting the collaboration, foster greater peer evaluation ...). Based on the results of the questionnaire, with a view to improving (LS) said online and in view reuse, we proceed to a second round of re-design, testing and evaluation. This work defines an iterative design approach that Wang and Hannafin (2005) confirm its role in the ongoing development and refinement of theories.
