Today, e-learning is the world trendsetter education in developing web-based educational systems. There are two types web-based educational systems on e-learning. Those are e-learning based on WBLP (Web Based Learning Package) and e-learning based on WBIS (Web Based Information System). The purpose of this research study is to determine the difference between elearning based on WBLP and e-learning based on WBIS. E-learning based on WBLP is a web based e-learning which is developed using Learning Management System and already packed in a software learning package with several features such as moodle and joomla. E-learning based on WBIS is a web based e-learning which is designed through prototyping (analysis requirement, design system, design entity relationship diagram, database schema), programming, testing and maintenance. In conclusion, knowing the difference between WBLP and WBIS will enable e-learning developer to choose the suitable web based learning for the implementation. Therefore, choosing the right web based learning is a strategy to improve the competitiveness of learning in higher education, to improve online learning systems among learners, and to increase public knowledge in research and education through e-learning.
