Summary
This brief paper examines the issues of awareness and application of a Learning Management System (LMS) used at the National Defence University of Malaysia (NDUM), Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. The paper argues that due to the discouraging responses from academics at the university on using the LMS, proactive measures must be taken immediately in order to arrest the situation. While most academics at the defence university can be categorised as Digital Natives, the reality does not reflect the enthusiasm of them to utilise new technologies. The discussion in this paper revolves around the concerns that stop academics to include the LMS in their teaching and learning repertoire. Data were obtained from observations on the use of the LMS and the number of participants who enrolled for the training of the LMS. This paper argues that due to the lack of organisational and structural support, academics at the NDUM may have reservations about using the LMS. (Abstract by author)

Summary
A Learning Management System (LMS) can be a singularly critical platform to report on students’ learning progress and to monitor students’ learning engagement. At the only defence university in Malaysia, the National Defence University of Malaysia (NDUM) adopts the LMS as a supplementary learning and teaching tool. Nonetheless, the aspiration of Malaysia to ensure that higher learning institutions actively participate in the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) has further emphasised the need for the NDUM to provide an effective LMS to the students. This paper aims at examining the perceptions of students at the Defence University on the use of the LMS. The Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) is used as the basis for generating hypotheses and conceptual framework for the paper. Five classes of students were involved in the data collection resulting in 100 returned questionnaires. Preliminary findings highlight students’ positive attitudes towards the use of the LMS; however, there are technical issues that must be addressed to ensure that the LMS can function effectively.
