Abstract: Educational institutions and businesses do have a variety of course management software to select from for developing and deploying distance delivery programs. For this reason, selecting the one course management software for implementation can be quite a task for the end-user because these products can be quite different in their operating capabilities, systems requirements, and cost structures. This study examines the operating capabilities of selected course management software. Specifically, this research identifies the different types of components and their associated tools that are available in popular course management software packages. Selected observations about needed systems requirements for implementing the software and their cost structures are also reported.

Keywords: course management software, software tools, software capabilities
