Abstract: The aim of study was to identify trends on the LMS’s and e-learning industry’s market in the context of students’ and academics’ needs in regard to distance education. Features and capabilities of the Moodle and Microsoft Teams platforms for distance education and networking purposes were analyzed and also the 5119 questionnaires conducted among the Cracow Pedagogical University students participating in distance education. 3167 questionnaires were conducted between 18th and 21st March 2020, another 1927 between 26th May and 7th June 2020, and a group of 25 students enrolled in Culture and Media Studies course completed questionnaires between 1st and 18th June 2020. The results of the research indicated that Moodle platform is better protected from unauthorized access. MT is more attractive regarding to video meetings system, but working with MT is absorbing, stressful and exhausting especially for the tutor, because MT is inscribed into corporate  practices, and is dominated by visual and synchronous communication. When it comes to testing knowledge, 37% students preferred Moodle, 22% – MT, while 41% – other. Moodle refers to university traditions, while MT – to culture of corporate co-operation and uniformity. Regulations should not aim at pleasing students’ by attractive tools, but should safeguard the good quality of distance education.

Keywords: e-learning industry market; corporation; attractiveness; video meetings; regulations.
