Schools are increasingly using Information Communication Technologies (ICTs) for student learning and other school functions, with schools incorporating ICT applications to streamline school management practices. This research explores the implementation of a Learning Management System (LMS), MOODLE (Modular Object Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment) in a large semi-rural state high school in Queensland, Australia. Results (Data logs) show that students quickly incorporate LMS features for learning and other purposes and students’ familiarity with technology influenced the use of new applications (Hot Potatoes Quiz & Student generated glossaries) and wider application use across the system. Results also indicate that teaching practices changed (Focus interviews) in response to implementation of the LMS with an increased use of the site.
