The widespread use of the Internet has enriched the adoption of course management systems or learning management systems in educational settings. This study investigates K-12 teacher perceptions in the use of Blackboard and Moodle. Teacher interviews indicated a preference to the use of Moodle, although no significant statistical preference was obtained. The expense of license fee, technical support, eases of use or navigate, and prior experience were factors which influenced the decision of choosing Blackboard or Moodle as a school’s learning management tool. Data for the research was collected in a mixed methodology of quantitative and qualitative approaches.
