This brief paper examines the issues of awareness and application of a Learning Management System (LMS) used at the National Defence University of Malaysia (NDUM), Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. The paper argues that due to the discouraging responses from academics at the university on using the LMS, proactive measures must be taken immediately in order to arrest the situation. While most academics at the defence university can be categorised as Digital Natives, the reality does not reflect the enthusiasm of them to utilise new technologies. The discussion in this paper revolves around the concerns that stop academics to include the LMS in their teaching and learning repertoire. Data were obtained from observations on the use of the LMS and the number of participants who enrolled for the training of the LMS. This paper argues that due to the lack of organisational and structural support, academics at the NDUM may have reservations about using the LMS.
