E-mail Based Updates Delivery in Unidirectional Content Synchronization among Learning Management Systems Over Limited Bandwidth Environment
Access this Article
As the usage of Learning Management System(LMS) becomes popular in academic institution, demands forsharing learning content among them are getting higher. Sucha way could be an alternative way of resource sharing in orderto reduce the cost and effort instead of building a high qualitymaterial of e-learning content by themselves. Despite the leverageof Internet has been massive, not all places covered by sufficientinfrastructure. Some parts of developing country, for example,eastern part of Indonesia, are still suffering unstable connection,availability, frequent disconnection and limited bandwidth. Inaddition, e-mail technology has been used widely as one of thepopular communication tool. Also, its capability of transportingdifferent types of digital content message across multiple andseparated network makes it sufficient to be employed in such limitednetwork. This paper discusses the concept and architectureof e-mail based delivery for distributing updates between LMSsin terms of content synchronization among LMSs over limitedbandwidth network. A running example on how the system worksis described and shows that this system managed to synchronizecourse content between LMSs by means of e-mail system.
