Abstract

Learning Management Systems (LMS) are touted to bring great efficiencies and effectiveness to organizations through and training of employees. Their presence is made possible by recent gains in instructional technology of power, speed, and accessibility, enhanced by the demise of the limitations of microcomputers of the 1980s. There is little current LMS research to support the marketing claims made by system vendors, with respect to either organizational or individual change and effectiveness. LMSs in fact have a rich history in theory and practice, derived from numerous studies completed during the days BC (before microcomputers), when mainframes roamed the earth, devouring vast sums of money and programming expertise. This paper examines key elements of the history of computer managed instruction, including theoretical underpinnings, and applications in various fields. It is the hope that lessons will be drawn from this work which may inform those engaged in reinventing the wheel.
