Background and Aim: In order to comprehension of interactive content and content production standards, and also users interaction with LMSs, and their behavior in dealing with information, the aim of this paper is to examine the users interaction information provided in the eFront application, an open source Learning Management System, by emphasizing SCORM standard.

Method: The method that used in this study, is Netnograghy which is a qualitative method and it is ethnography in online society. All the data is collected online by using the software reports.

Results: by comparing users’ behavior between two courses in eFront application we understand that in courses which the content is provided by text and images need to have an online teacher and that content is not enough. The users who was attended in course “Installing virtual reference desk" not only need information in text format and images but also need to interact with teacher directly. In the first three chapters of this course which have made in film format, users had fewer problems. The users who have attended in course with web conference passed the course more successful than before. In the course "EndNote” which content have made in film format, users could make good communication with information and had less problem.

Conclusion: Provide educational content in the context of "interactive learning management system" should be the terms and conditions. You can not just put the text and image content to reach the desired result. Although content in the form of educational films can provide more help to the user, to achieve better results, we need to fully interactive content which is available to users, in order to control their activity in learning environment.
