Streamlining Learning Management System (LMS) Platforms

LMS 101 Series

This series consists of three parts delivered in two formats: “live”, or synchronous sessions, three, 1-hour sessions offered in live zoom sessions at least twice per month; and an “on-demand”, or asynchronous course where educators can take a deeper dive on their own time.

During the LMS 101 series, whether participating “live” or “on-demand”, participants will:

  • Gain an understanding of how to use their selected LMS.
  • Gather ideas for how to develop, organize, and assign classes, materials, activities, assignments, and quizzes/assessments.
  • Investigate resources and begin planning to use their LMS in classrooms.
  • Develop an understanding of LMS best practices during distance/remote and/or in-person learning.
  • Preview parent/student communication reports and access.

Part 1

Part 1 will engage participants in the basics of accessing and navigating select LMS platforms.

Part 2

Part 2 will support participants in selecting and managing content area student materials and resources to engage students using their selected LMS.

Part 3

Part 3 will address how participants can use their LMS for assessment and communication with students and families.

Multiple ways to learn!

Courses are open to all educators. Choose the best option for you, or engage in both.
