Self- regulated learning skills (SRL) are deemed essential for survival in the 21st century and should be developed among students by providing the opportunities of beyond school connectivity (Jaclyn Broadbent, 2017; Uz & Uzun, 2018). Current study is a case study of Edopia School, utilizing Learning Management System (LMS) and face-to-face interaction in an aim to develop SRL skills among students. Therefore, this research was conducted to find out the level of the SRL skills among the students and record their views about the provision of LMS for beyond school connectivity and its role in the development of SRL Skills. Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ) was administered to assess the level of SRL skills followed by focus group discussions to gather views of the students. It was found that LMS helped the learners in developing SRL skills with the mean score of 5.45, 5.7 and 5.5 on three components of MSLQ. During focus group discussion students highlighted the learning environment of the school, student- teacher ratio and parental involvement as motivating factors for the development of SRL skills.
