Student Centered e-Learning Environment (SCELE) is a Moodle-based learning management system (LMS) that has been modified to enhance learning within a computer science department curriculum offered by the Faculty of Computer Science of large public university in Indonesia. This Moodle provided a mechanism to record students’ activities when engaged in learning with e-Learning software. However, while the software captured the data and presented it adequately, there is room for enhancement and further refinement. The purpose of this research is to investigate and understand lecturer needs as they monitor student activities in SCELE and then develop a learning monitoring tool capable of visualizing and collecting data in a form that facilitates lecturer observation, analysis, and targeting of specific concepts. Theories found within information architecture and information visualization are used as a foundational approach in the development of the application. The result of the research focuses on developing a learning dashboard Moodle plugin that can be easily utilized by lecturers engaging SCELE.
