Using ICT, it is possible to build an educational process that will not only be independent of time and space, but also provide quick access to educational materials. In this case, educational material can be not only in a readable format, but also in the form of video materials. In the Kyrgyz Republic, the use of distance learning can be helpful to solve a number of problems. The focus of this study is the usability problems faced in Learning Management System, as well as to investigate factors influencing usage of the system. In the frame of the study, we have used several methods, including survey, the RAM usage analysis and loading time compression tests. Results suggested that the LMS usage could be widely adopted in the region. In addition, within the analysis of usage problems, decrease the loading time in Moodle by organizing the course resources, and hence improving the loading time and stopping users from abandoning the site was done.
