Muhammad Akram & Muhammad Ayaz Khan


The use of Learning Management Systems (LMS) in school management has quickly increased in 21st century due to its efficiency and effectiveness. LMS used in this study can provide principals, supervisors, and subject teachers with the information for informed planning, policy-making, and evaluation through tools of monitoring, communication and decision making. The current study explores the e-leadership by school principals through an LMS provided by 3-P Learning Organization Australia. This LMS is implemented in more than fifty private schools in Pakistan. This study was conducted under the interpretive paradigm and phenomenology design was used to explore the phenomena of the Learning Management System. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with six participants, coordinators and LMS supervisors and teachers. The results of this investigation showed that decision making, monitoring and communication in this LMS give broad help to school principals in dealing with their associations and dynamic support of educators thus increment the viability of E-leadership. Information based basic leadership is the result of the observing, and correspondence among the instructors, understudies, and guardians. So as to improve e-initiative, I suggest school principal ought to extend the utilization of refreshed information of instructing and gain from educators, understudies, and guardians derived through LMS.
