In this paper we present a multicriteria methodology for supporting institutes’ decisions on eLearning platform evaluation. Based on previous research, we define a set of evaluation criteria, define appropriate weights in collaboration with experts and utilize an outranking approach for the multicriteria model. In order to demonstrate the model we apply the method in evaluating a number of open source platforms and present the decision outcome. This methodology can support institutes’ decision makers not only by providing a solution to the selection problem, but in understanding the factors that are involved in the selection decision through their involvement in the decision process as well.
