This study aims to design a Learning Management System (LMS) model that will provide a learning ecosystem that is suitable for the characteristics of students in higher education, in order to achieve an effective and efficient learning process in ways that are simple, interesting, and interactive by utilizing various multidimensional learning resources in Cyber Pedagogy. The research was carried out both quantitatively and qualitatively. This study's population is a student at the Institute of Technology and Business (ITB) STIKOM Bali, Faculty of Information Systems (IS), with 53 respondents, including three lecturers in the stage of expert testing, who are Learning Media Expert, Instructional Design Expert, and Teaching Expert, and 50 student respondents. The LMS Model that will be created is known as a SMILE, which stands for a Simple, Multidimensional, and Interactive Learning Ecosystem. This SMILE Model is expected to address the needs and challenges of learning in the 21st century, particularly for the millennial generation, which represents the largest market share of the current college, and for whom the use of information technology is one of their notable characteristics. During the implementation stage, a Blended Learning approach will be used in a different format during the pandemic, with a live face-to-face session in a virtual classroom used as a substitute for conventional face-to-face interaction in a classroom.
