Abstract

Advanced technology (internet, communication) provided many of the electronic systems to accomplish traditional works in various fields with a view to ease, shorten the time, and raise the effectiveness of the work done. The traditional view of learning over the Internet changed from just publishing of text content on the Internet to a comprehensive and dynamic learning environment. Here it emerged the need for a learning management system to serve the learning process, especially over Internet. One of the most important system is the Learning Management Systems (LMS), which contributed to the change of the traditional concept of learning in many countries; there is an increase in the number of universities and campus-based institutions that use these systems to support traditional learning process or as an alternative as it is in e-Learning and distance learning. In this paper, there is a brief overview of the Learning Management Systems, a comparison between two popular systems (Blackboard Learn and Moodle) in three categories including content tools, assessment and testing tools, and communication tools.
