Abstract

Although a number of Learning Management Systems (LMS) are running on the Internet, it is clear that they are not able to efficiently meet users' requirements, for example, to dynamically create and control learning activities and processes, and to efficiently describe and use the semantics of learning objects and content. In any modern universities, the use of LMS methods is an important technology that can improve the quality of learning and teaching, and also able to enhance the academic profile of the universities. The new online learning paradigm is not only about avoiding time and space barriers; but it is also about providing the learning resources and training activities needed in the right place and at the right time. This chapter is to identify the main essentials of LMSs, such as the definitions, concepts, features and best practices of LMS. It also focuses on the case study surveyed on Sana'a Community College (SCC) in Yemen in order to identify the appropriate requirements and components of a web-based e-learning system which uses LMS methods for SCC. Based on the literature reviews, analysis of the questionnaires and interviews, a framework for embedding e-learning system in SCC and is proposed.
