Abstract

This paper discusses the usage of the various managements systems and environments in e-learning, including Learning Management System (LMS), Content Management Systems (CMS), Learning Content Management Systems (LCMS), and Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). The first part is dealing with the most common definitions, essential elements, properties, functions and successful examples for each of all these systems. The next part contains detailed comparison between the systems. The main similarities and differences are explained, as well as their applications. In this comparison, we are considering various aspects of e-Learning, including content (creating, storing, organizing, publishing and sharing), data storage, metadata and learning objects, services and tools, multimedia issues, communication, collaboration, interaction, standards, and the essential components of e-Learning courses. Finally, the author proposes how to compare existing systems, by using available online tools, and/or system and product analysis. He concluded that serious solutions should satisfy the most requirements of different software quality models. This will be helpful for educational institutions and professionals in the field of e-Learning to select, create or develop the most appropriate system/environment that will meet their requirements and expectations, as well as the educational needs of their students.
