Learning Systems Academy logo

The Learning Systems Academy was created to support VCU faculty with technology for teaching and learning. Modeled after the Khan Academy, the more personalized approach allows you to get the information you need when you need it.

The Learning Systems Academy has a library of videos on topics ranging from beginner Blackboard to using VoiceThread. The short clip format makes it easy for users to get quick help on things like “how to create a test in Blackboard” or "how to start a Collaborate Ultra session.” You can search for a specific topic or simply click on clip you are interested in learning more about; each video is about 4 to 5 minutes or less.  These videos are created by subject-matter experts on the Learning Systems team, and are recorded on the VCU system, making it easier to relate it to your own courses or content.
