Polytechnic Institute of Porto (IPP) / ISCAP - CICE (PORTUGAL)
The use of Laptops and the Internet has produced the technological conditions for teachers and students can take advantage from the diversity of online information, communication, collaboration and sharing with others. The integration of Internet services in the teaching practices can be responsible for thematic, social and digital improvement for the agents involved. There are many benefits when we use a LMS (Learning Management Systems) such as Moodle, to support the lectures in higher education. We also will consider its implications for student support and online interaction, leading educational agents to a collaborating of different learning environments, where they can combine face-to-face instruction with computer-mediated instruction, blended-learning, and increases the possibilities for better quality and quantity of human communication in a learning background.

In general, components of learning management systems contain synchronous and asynchronous communication tools, management features, and assessment utilities. These assessment utilities permit lecturers to systematize basic assessment tasks. Assessments can be straightaway delivered to the student, and upon conclusion, immediately returned with grades and detailed feedback. Therefore learning management systems can also be used for assessment purposes in Higher Education.
