The LMS is arguably one of the most important Teaching and Learning tools for OHIO. It is in our best interest to continuously evaluate competition and to make sure the technology we leverage meets our needs. Our current LMS adoption rate (usage rate) is around 60+%, our goal is to provide an LMS to the campus community that supports the changing nature of education (more online, more technology focused).

  • The LMS fulfills the needs of our faculty and students when it comes to course documents, communication, collaboration, assessments and grades.
  • The LMS presents a new look and feel that is more in line with 21st century expectations
