This study discusses on psychomotor factors in the use of learning management system (LMS) at polytechnic institutions in Malaysia. The use of LMS system in conventional education focuses more on cognitive and effective factors. This is different in the technical and vocational education which emphasizes on affective and psychomotor factors. This study will investigate the important of these two factors by conducting a literature review using terms such as practical training, vocational training, and technical education. Findings from this study will provide an insight for policy makers, software developers and related agencies to improve existing LMS systems for effective education and teaching using LMS in the field of TVET.
