Abstract

LMS is an online learning platform enables stu-dents to acquire knowledge with the help of technologies. One fo-cus group interview was conducted with 25 participants from Bachelor of Teaching English as a Second Language degree pro-gram. Data extracted from the verbatim was analyzed via the-matic analysis. Although the data collected is limited to a small sample, participants had provided insightful feedback, which is informing that LMS is a catalyst towards empowering learners to become independent learner. In an effort to produce quality and independent learners, LMS is seen as a means to assist educators in developing quality online internet based courses and websites as well as to fulfill students' needs in acquiring information any-where and anytime. It then concludes the adoption of LMS and puts forward suggestions for further research.
