Australian universities are increasingly turning to the use of information and communications technology (ICT) in particular learning management systems (LMS) to assist in the teaching and delivery of course materials and to provide assessment. New and improved information technologies such as the learning management system Desire2Learn ( provide a mechanism for universities to deliver courses to more diverse students, such as students who cannot attend campus based study for various reasons, such as work or family commitments or due to cost or physical distance. Recognising these facets, many universities have incorporated the use of learning management systems, also called content management systems (CMS), as an integral component of their teaching delivery platforms. This study-investigated student attitudes and learning through a LMS and compared the differences between two groups of students (N = 203) studying the same course in two different learning modes-fully online or on-campus. Study results revealed that the students study mode (online or on-campus) did not affect their end of unit results (mark or grade). What affected unit results were factors, which could be considered motivational such as tutorial attendance and listening to pre-recorded lectures more than once.
