Abstract— Many Universities recognize the necessity of using Learning Management Systems (LMSs) to increase learners' motivation, encourage interaction, provide feedback and provide support during the learning process. There are many proprietary and open source LMSs that can be found as alternative products. With the ever-growing number of LMSs, the task of developing and evaluating LMS becomes even more important. This paper discusses the factors that affect the use of LMS, the developing issues that have an impact on LMS and the evaluation processes that should be taken to select the suitable LMS. Also, it presents challenges that face LMS success, efficiency, assessment, evaluation, selection and usability. Last it shows the current trends to answer a question of how the LMS of the future will look like.

Index Terms— Learning management system, e-learning, LMS success, LMS challenges, LMS trends.
