The use of technology to facilitate the learning process is crucial to lifelong learning among the students. Nevertheless, in many developing countries employing technology in education continuously fails to streamline the education system. This paper addresses why merely throwing technology into the classrooms cannot suffice. An appropriate amalgamation of technology with adequate methods of teaching is an imperative. Therefore, it signals a need to effectively utilize the web-based pedagogical tools in education to boost the learning process rather than students engaging in maladaptive practices.

This study has been carried out to investigate the use of Learning Management System and self-regulated at National University of Sciences and Technology in Islamabad, Pakistan. Specifically, the study analyzes how the use of the LMS reinforces the student self-regulation at NUST and consequently examines students’ satisfaction with their learning outcomes and productivity level.

Undoubtedly, education forms the core of all developmental activities. There exists a strong relationship between education and socio-economic development. However, only the education that prepares individuals which contribute to the society has the potential to unriddle dismal economic growth in the developing countries. The education system in most of the developing countries can be streamlined by employing technology to facilitate the learning processes. Hence an indirect yet a decisive role of technology for better education which paves the way to socio-economic development cannot be denied.

Many universities even though they have employed technology and WBPT in the education system continuously fail to establish an effective learning environment for the students. Therefore, this study has been conducted aiming to address a similar issue and to examine the use of the LMS at NUST. The study essentially examines whether LMS plays a potential role to assist self-regulated learning among the students and what is its potential impact on their learning outcomes and productivity level.

The study employs a quantitative approach based on descriptive and inferential statistics. The results from this study will help to improve the ways the LMS can be optimally utilized at NUST to effectively facilitate the learning process. Additionally, other universities based in Islamabad can take lessons concerning the use of Web-Based Pedagogical Tools (WBPT) to boost self-regulation and learning outcomes among the students.
