Abstract

This systematic review explores the dynamic intersection of education and technology, focusing on the integration of Learning Management Systems (LMS) within blended learning curricula. The study delves into the evolving landscape of blended learning, tracing its progression from early models that emphasized physical instruction to contemporary approaches where digital technologies, particularly LMS platforms, play pivotal roles. LMS platforms serve as central hubs for managing course materials, facilitating communication, and enhancing flexibility within blended learning environments. The review identifies a set of key strategies and best practices essential for educators seeking to craft effective blended learning curricula with LMS integration. These strategies encompass the establishment of clear learning objectives, the creation of engaging multimedia content, the promotion of interaction and engagement, the implementation of diverse assessment and feedback mechanisms, the provision of flexibility to cater to diverse learner needs, the investment in professional development for educators, and the utilization of data analysis to refine instructional strategies. Additionally, the impact of LMS-supported blended learning on student outcomes emerges as a compelling aspect of this study. Research findings indicate that students in such environments report higher levels of satisfaction, perceive increased learning gains, and achieve improved academic outcomes. Blended learning, underpinned by LMS platforms, bridges the gap between traditional and online instruction, capitalizing on the strengths of both modalities to create holistic learning experiences. This systematic review underscores the transformative potential of Learning Management Systems in optimizing education through blended learning. It offers valuable insights and actionable strategies for educators, institutions, and stakeholders in the field of education. As the educational landscape continues to evolve, this study serves as a roadmap for harnessing technology to create dynamic, student-centered learning environments, paving the way for a promising future where the optimization of education is not merely a goal but a realized aspiration.
