Abstract: "As a third world country, Indonesia undergoes a huge digital divide compared to other developed nations. With this condition, educators and university staff should transform the practices of education by adapting to technological platforms of Learning Management Systems (LMS) as one of the ways to accelerate the increasing quality of Indonesian education. The purpose of this paper is, therefore, to evaluate the implementation of LMS in Indonesian higher educations. There are three aspects elaborated from the practices: technical issue, organisational issue, and demographic issue. It is found that the major problem with the technical issue is the lack of teachers’ expertise on computers literacy. Furthermore, the lack of systematic procedure in implementing the system, the absence of faculty members’ commitment towards the transformation, and the less involvement of university leaders in promoting the system are concluded as challenges from the organisational issue. From the demographic issue, it is apparent that the government should provide equal educational access across Indonesia for the new transformation to be effective. Given the various challenges, some further recommendations are offered to tackle the problems."
