instruction in any arena and adapts them to the virtual environment.(Johnston, S.,2007. Pg 22)

Educational theories and
solid instructional practices that have been applied and tested over time are essential resources to
assist educators in creating quality online courses.(Johnston, S.,2007, pg 22) Why should our school utilize a Learning Management System?

availability of computers and networks increase in
schools, computer-based educational materials become
more practical, increasing the opportunity for
educators to make student experiences richer and
more meaningful. It is essential that educators seize
the opportunity"(Gillard, S., & Bailey, D.,2007. Pg.89) What can our school do to help teachers to learn the LMS? Resources:
