Emerging digital technologies in education are changing the traditional institutions by providing new possibilities for learning online and integrating technology for pedagogical innovation. Higher institutions such as universities and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges have implemented and adopted the learning management system (LMS) as an innovative alternative digital technology for online teaching and learning. A quantitative research approach was applied in this study. A questionnaire was used to collect data from the 215 TVET students. The students were randomly selected to share their experiences with regard to the integration and adoption of Learning Management Systems (LMS) for teaching and learning. The collected data were analysed using the SPSS software package. The findings indicated that most of the participants believed that LMS improved their learning performance, it is easy to be used and they will continue using it because it is fun.
The recommendations indicated that the TVET college need to develop the lecturers with relevant technological skills and knowledge. The college management must be abreast with the latest technology tools that are applied at other TVET colleges.
