Learn: Learning Management System

The University of Canterbury's Learning Management System is named Learn. It uses a popular open source software platform called Moodle, which was developed in Australia in 2002, and is constantly being refined by a world-wide user community. Most university courses use Learn for blended delivery of their teaching programme. Learn makes it possible to add interesting, multi-media learning resources and student-centred activities (learning tasks) to make your teaching more flexible, interactive and student-friendly.

Today's students need access to their course materials and activities at times to suit their busy lives, and Learn provides that "any time, any place" flexibility. Increasingly, Learn is being used to offer a comprehensive online learning environment for teaching distance students who are able to complete particular courses online.
