Recent trends of mathematics education using the open and distance mode indicates a paradigm shift in pedagogical perspectives and theoretical frameworks with the heart of learner- centered constructivist environments. The purpose of the action research was to explore the students' engagement using learning management system (LMS) and to foster online collaboration in mathematics learning in master's degree level of Tribhuvan University, Nepal. In the participatory action research, census method was used for online observation of students' activities. Only four students are chosen for interview representing both the genders purposively. Methodological and tool triangulation were used to analyze and interpretation of data. The finding revealed that students have positive perception towards the use of online mode and happy to learn mathematics using LMS. Students' engagement was increased when the tutor uses virtual classroom, online conceptual elaboration and technology integrated pedagogy in open and distance learning (ODL). It is suggested that LMS like Moodle is more effective in teaching and learning mathematics education using open and distance mode for higher education in Nepal.
