    The modeling of a 28-week course in Information Theory using IMS Learning Design Level B specification proved its efficiency for describing complex learning scenarios. This article briefly summarizes the method used to create the real-life unit of learning. The experiment showed that, although various types of editing software and rendering engines are available, the resulting production process relies too much on computer specialists to be adopted as a strategy at the institutional level, and that the lack of integration exhibited by both the software and the engines in terms of Virtual Learning Environments prevents large-scale deployment.
