At the present time, it is usually seen in many Universities and education institutions’ usage of specific web-based Learning Management Systems (LMS) for Distance Learning. Moodle is one of those LMSs. Nowadays, in web-based education the absence of social-constructivist approach is a disadvantage of those LMSs. In our study, at first, we dealed with social-constructivist approach and then we examined in detail according to how it will affect on higher education students in a sample class which builded up with Moodle LMS and social-constructivist approach. Also, we introduce a Distance Learning  System for Ege University, and conclusions are discussed with comparing this study with previous similar studies.
