For years, virtual learning has been proposed as a dominant approach to overcome the limitations of traditional education. The spread of emerging technologies and the connection of citizens to the Internet  has made virtual courses much more accesible than before. As the citizens of the third millennium refer to electronic shopping centers to purchase their goods, they expect to receive the instruction they require through virtual means. This trend, along with the increasing expectations, has created a gap between the current and the desired situation in the education process. Digital content management is considered as a facilitator to respond to emerging requirements. In this article, while explaining the dimensions of transformation in Virtual learning, the importance of digital content management in improving the effectiveness of virtual learning has been emphasized.
