Specifications recently proposed as standards in the domain of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL), question the designers of TEL systems on how to put them into practice. Recent studies in Model Driven Engineering have highlighted the need for a framework which could formalise the use of these specifications as well as enhance the quality of the developments for the TEL community. This paper deals with the opportunity for the TEL community to adopt the ISO/ODP-RM model (International Organization for Standardization/Open Distributed Processing - Reference Model), to express and formalise the design organisation and the engineering process of a TEL system. Such a model provides a set of concepts allowing the description of specification, modelisation and observation tasks one needs to perform to define the negotiation and the communication between actors in such a community. In a first part, we stress the need for the instantiation of this framework so as to integrate the specifications to TEL (such as SCORM, LOM or IMS/LD) as well as taking into account the evolution of software reengineering. In a second part, we propose two instances of this framework; the first is dedicated to the retro design and the second to the reengineering of a TEL system.
