This study investigated how often students used a learning management system, TopClass, in an on-campus course (Medicine) at The University of Melbourne. Students used the learning management system (LMS) to manage their access to learning materials, particularly lecture notes and assessment tasks. They also used the system to keep up-to-date by reading the latest announcements provided by faculty and to read what some of their peers had written through discussion lists and messaging. There are differences in usage as the course progresses and between international and local students. © 2005 Tom Petrovic and Gregor Kennedy.
