The existence of an e-learning management system (LMS) in each university is a key indicator for the establishment and development of e-learning. Country-based LMS systems are either open source software or do not benefit from effective training design. On the other hand, developing this software and setting up support contracts is a significant cost to any university. Therefore, one of the requirements of the “Virtual Education Development Package in Medical Sciences” was to launch a national LMS platform called Navidad (Specialized Academic Learning Software) and it was assigned to Virtual Medical University. This software was officially released to the medical universities of the country after various tests in September 1977.

A 24-hour, highly regulated support system is provided for university administrators to report problems at any time. These problems will be addressed immediately. It should be noted that the issues posted by the universities are regularly reviewed by the design, programming and networking teams and the necessary feedback is provided. The system won the UNESCO E-Learning and Learning Award in December 1977.

According to Navid’s e-learning management system development program, 15 versions of the system have been released so far. The added modules include copying lessons, extending the exam section, notifications module, extending the resources of the module, assignment and administration modules and entering information management training systems such as SAMA using the Excel file.
