Distributed Learning Technologies

LMS Office Hours

We invite faculty to join us once a month for discussion, updates, and back-and-forth feedback regarding the Learning Management System (LMS) and related learning technologies. System admins will be available to answer questions and present information about tools and changes in the system.

These "Office Hours" meetings will be held using a Zoom Webinar. You can participate with a computer (microphone and webcam are optional), or join via phone. Parts of these sessions will be recorded and shared online.

Our 2019 pilot program includes seven sessions to be held at 10:00 AM on the last Thursday of each month, from January through July. See full schedule below.

How to join

Our sessions run from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM on the last Thursday of each month.
