In this paper, we describe our development of a LMS (Learning Management System) for mobile devices and its effectiveness for teachers to improve their lectures. We developed this system as a pure web based application and we designed it for use in a face-to-face classroom setting without the students using PCs. We named this system "Instructional Kitchen Studio (IKS) ". The IKS has eight functions for instruction. In particular, this paper mentions five functions for a teacher. According to practical usage and research at a university, we found that the "collection keywords" function was useful for a teacher to estimate which individuals has the likelihood of becoming remedial learners. We also looked at the frequency of using this system related to examination scores, higher achievement and stronger satisfaction.
