This paper presents Diplek, a Learning Management System (LMS) that addresses the needs of novice users, educators and students. The development of Diplek is based on a service oriented architecture. Among the many services offered by the platform, one can distinguish the innovative Video recording service and the Course creation service that enable instructors to import any type of Learning Object and associate it with metadata. Diplek offers a friendly user interface with dialogs and wizards that help users deal with difficult and time consuming tasks. The platforms architecture (not web-based) enables it to be deployed in both internet and internet-less communities.
