At its core, a Learning Management System (LMS) is a software application or Web based technology used to plan, implement, and assess a specific learning process. Typically, a learning management system provides an instructor with a way to create and deliver content, monitor student participation, and assess student performance. The LMS enables the learning content to be to be available and/or accessible online thereby allowing students to view and interact with learning materials though a web browser on essentially any computer that has internet access. The specific features and functions of these systems vary considerably, but certain core functions can be found across all of them. These functions include administration features such as: student registration, course assignment, tracking of test or quiz scores and completion status. From the student or learner perspective, the LMS provides personalized access to assigned course materials, messaging and notifications, and access to scores and transcripts. E-learning is a new education concept by using the Internet technology, it deliveries the digital content, provides a learner-orient environment for the teachers and students. In connection to this e- learning we connect Learning Management System (LMS) is a software application for the administration, documentation, tracking, and reporting of training programs, classroom and online events, e-learning programs, and training content. All Learning Management system is not alike, and they could be used in different ways. However, a common idea behind a Learning Management System (LMS) is that e- learning is organized and managed within an integrated system. SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
Learning Management System (LMS) is used to handle and control the delivery of self- paced instructor led e- learning courses. It illustrates source course module, interactive new forums and event calendar. Learning Management System is “learn anything, anywhere, anytime”. (Kaitrungkit and Vangtan, 2006)
The proposed Learning Management System (LMS) was intended to design a more innovative means to deliver education which could be supplementary to the traditional education system. Learning Management System has also the potential of managing student’s work like projects, assignments and other activities while supporting instructor works.
Developing a Learning Management System (LMS) aids in to the improvement of a university as it utilitizes the significant changes in technology. This system was suited to the students as well as the faculty members. STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
This will adheres to the principles of traditional education. Because of this, several uncertainties have been identified. * There is no formal technical support where instructional materials can be uploaded. * Limited capabilities for online communication; and
* Insufficient system to deliver learning and activities
OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
This study aims to design and develop an online Learning Management System for the needs of assisting students and faculty.
Specifically, it ought to:
* Provide portal wherein faculty can deliver instruction through the internet. * Develop a working and reliable system; and
* Utilize tools, methodologies and techniques for the design and development of a Learning Management System. * Provides learners a more interesting way of studying the course integrating animation, simulation, diagram and illustrations and interaction. * Supplement traditional classroom set up thereby enhancing student’s learning capabilities by integrating multimedia files relevant to the lecture. * Enable the teachers and students to have access to the subject through Information Technology at their own choice of time and place, this providing their convenience. SCOPE AND LIMITATION OF THE STUDY
In a corporate world, LMS ranges from...
