The Mission of Learning Systems is to maintain and support specific technologies identified by the University for teaching and learning instructional applications, primarily Blackboard, Echo360, Kaltura and Lon-CAPA.  Learning Systems will maintain these applications to ensure consistent functionality and data integrity, will provide technical expertise, and deliver specialized end-user support to the Virginia Commonwealth University community.  These applications are a vital part of transforming teaching, learning, and research, which are all part of VCU’s Quest for Distinction.
