Abstract

As the usage of Learning Management System (LMS) becomes popular in academic institution, demands for sharing learning content among them are getting higher. Such a way could be an alternative way of resource sharing in order to reduce the cost and effort instead of building a high quality material of e-learning content by themselves. Despite the leverage of Internet has been massive, not all places covered by sufficient infrastructure. Some parts of developing country, for example, eastern part of Indonesia, are still suffering unstable connection, availability, frequent disconnection and limited bandwidth. In addition, e-mail technology has been used widely as one of the popular communication tool. Also, its capability of transporting different types of digital content message across multiple and separated network makes it sufficient to be employed in such limited network. This paper discusses the concept and architecture of e-mail based delivery for distributing updates between LMSs in terms of content synchronization among LMSs over limited bandwidth network. A running example on how the system works is described and shows that this system managed to synchronize course content between LMSs by means of e-mail system.
