Abstract: With advances in technology, revolutionary changes have been taking place in educational institutions. The traditional classroom method of teaching no longer fulfills all teaching outcomes. A blended teaching methodology, involving the traditional system and the addition of e-learning through the application of Learning Management Systems (LMS), provides newer opportunities to achieving the expected learning outcomes. The functionality of these systems must be studied and analyzed for proper application. This study compared the faculty experience and perception of using two of the most widely used LMS, namely Blackboard and Moodle. The results of the survey revealed that these systems help to enhance the effectiveness of teaching and learning and increase student-staff interaction. The analysis concludes that the Blackboard system of e-learning by LMS is widely preferred.
