Abstract: Learning occurs when learners are actively involved in various learning activities. Current e-learning systems focus more on content development rather than on learning activities itself. Embedding pedagogical aspect in learning activities into e-learning system is value added as it represents the natural way of learning process. This pedagogical aspect of learning activities embedded in e-learning system play a vital role to help learners achieve learning outcomes. This study propose features of learning activity in an e-learning system called Learning Activities E-Learning Management System (LAE-LMS) realized from analysis results of a few current systems. The LEA-LMS was developed by applying a part of the Level A IMS LD (Instructional Management Systems Global Learning Consortium Learning Design) Conceptual Model. This system allows teacher to plan, manage and monitor learning activities, while students carry out the activities. LAE-LMS consists of five modules: registration module, synopsis module, authoring module, monitoring module and learner module. The features of learning activity are evaluated by performing an acceptance testing to the LAE-LMS. Acceptance testing of LAE-LMS showed that teachers and learners have high positive perception on security, suitability, accurateness and satisfaction of the features of the system.
