UC Learning System Unavailable July 28-August 7, 2017

A system-wide update of UC’s learning management system (LMS) requires the Office of the President to take it offline for one workweek, starting at 5 p.m. on Friday, July 28. The LMS is an online resource where staff and faculty can complete required trainings as well as access professional development courses. The LMS is scheduled to return to service on Monday, Aug. 7, with all the data and trainings that existed prior to the upgrade, but also a more contemporary interface and compatibility with all browsers.
