An effective e-learning is studied in this research and in general there are different e-learning models and methods in existence and most of them concentrate on different aspects and a typical high school is designed and implementation procedure is discussed in this research. Moodle is an object oriented e-learning system and this can be used to create an automated online education portal with the use of some customized templates.
The main disadvantage with these templates is that, if there is any issues with respect to programming and also if anything need to be updated it is not possible and in this I research I have given a design and implementation procedure to develop an online high school system similar to the Moodle and with this updating the software programmatically is very easy.
