Coinciding with the development and growth of the Internet, there has been a dramatic increase in the application of the Learning Management System (LMS) in higher education. Currently, university and college campuses must compare each LMS to ensure that the system meets the requirements and demands of the institution. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to review and discuss the important concepts and findings from research on LMS regarding higher education. In addition, five categories of LMS features on higher education are discussed, including (1) transmitting course content; (2) evaluating students; (3) evaluating courses and instructors; (4) creating class discussions; and (5) creating computer-based instructors. After discussing and reviewing the research, this study provides several recommendations and a model of development and design of LMS for future implementation.
