Abstract

The importance of the evaluation and assessment is to introduce the changes on the existing LMS and to address the need of distance learning students and updating the current system by a new technologies which will increase the students interactions with the LMS and that will led to achieve the learning goal. The assessment of the LMS for distance learning in particular is significant for every university and from here come the idea of gather a new requirements for the learning management system (LMS) in distance learning institutions. This study aim to gather a requirements for the LMS and that because the technology always change over time and hence different LMS will be needed at different opportunity in order to provide a desired functionalities. This study discussed the students requirements for the LMS based on the questionnaire conducted for the distance learning students using Hard copy and online questionnaire, the collected data analyzed using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS). This study found out that it was important for the students to include the new feature in the future LMS such s plagiarism checker, Short Message Service (SMS), online survey, online journal and RSS.
