UC Learning Center Support



Introduction & Background


The UC Learning Center is a learning management system used throughout the UC system. A  Learning Management System (LMS) is a software package that provides management and tracking of learning activities to a variety of learners. The web-based access facilitates "anytime, any place, any pace" access to training content and administration.

The UC Learning Center replaced previous training registration systems including the Education & Development Online Enrollment system and Environmental Health & Safety system. Historical training data from those systems were moved over to the UC Learning Center.

Background

While the central LMS database is the same, each location is able to configure the site in a manner that reflects the needs and culture of the campus or lab.  While we have been using the UC Learning Center at the UCR campus to manage many of our online courses for some time, we are now moving ahead with an enhanced implementation of this system.

Benefits of using a LMS:

  • Provide one system for managing learning activities for faculty, staff, affiliates, and students (student employees and those students who need to complete learning activities outside of college programs)
  • Provide one system to identify and assign comprehensive training requirements
  • Minimize duplication of training management processes
  • Provide a consistent platform to develop and provide online courses
  • Provide comprehensive training reports on required and professional development activities
  • Generate automated notification of assigned activities, upcoming classes, or retraining reminders
