Abstract

Learning Management Systems are becoming more popular among all institutions of higher learning. One problem all institutions face is the selection of appropriate solution fit in to organization's requirement. While selecting a system the organisations have to focus on all stakeholders rather than focusing just on the features of the system. Many at times the institutions focus on various utilities available in these systems than the user aspects of the system. This lead to non-usability of such system. Many systems fail irrespective of possessing advanced features due to the non acceptance among the users. Many at times they are not because of the poor design but the failure of team spirit in some organisations. The present case is a study on the experience of implementation of such system in an institute of higher learning. There is a mismatch between the motivation behind introduction of Learning Management System and the motivation of the users to use it for manifesting their power over the supportive staffs ie. the system administrators.
