A benchmarking process can become the best strategy to evaluate and compare e-learning platforms before implementing one of them in an educational institution of any level. Comparing the use and the impact among the e-learning options in higher level education institutions requires a deep discussion of the appropriate measures to consider to establish adequate analogies among them. The process is based on technological functions as well as pedagogical aspects related to curriculum design, which determine the viability and feasibility of their implementation; furthermore they must be attached to a logical framework, which needs to make sense to the main actors involved in the process of adoption of e-learning: students and teachers. Open source Moodle, developed by Martin Dougiamas was selected as the most complete and ad hoc platform according to the current educational model at Christopher Columbus University in Mexico. This selection was based on the constructivist paradigm looking for meaningful generation of learning among students.
