Abstract

This paper examines the concepts of E-Learning and the definition of Virtual Universities. This paper examines the main components of learning Management Systems, the standards in e-learning where they exist, and the systems currently available commercially. It is argued that due to a number offactors, large institutions like universities will end up adopting a range of commercial and ad hoc e-learning, often self developed, systems to satisfy content delivery needs. The author feels that without a unified e-learning vision and interface to academic content, Virtual Universities within normal universities cannot succeed.
