LMS is a software application used for the administration, documentation, tracking, reporting, and delivery of the course content. This study will introduce the design process of LMS that was developed by Yildiz Technical University. Based on the lessons learned during and after the design of LMS, it is concluded that users are one of the most important assets of LMS for the improvement of these systems.
