Stage 2: development of the LMS in the form of hybrid mobile application and responsive web design. Stage 3: creating a model of teaching and learning for local curriculum via mobile devices; assessment of the satisfaction towards the efficiency of system and content; and assessment of the achievement and learning retention, comparing with the control group. The results showed that users were highly satisfied with this LMS. The efficiency of the course content was higher than 80/80. Both post-test score and learning retention of the experimental group were significantly higher than the control group (p < .05).
