Blackboard is the institutionally-supported Learning Management System (LMS) at Mount Royal. Serving as a digital extension of the classroom, the LMS enables instructors and students to connect with one another and with course content, anytime and anywhere. We collaborate closely with Information Technology Services to ensure the operation of this critical learning infrastructure.

ADC is responsible for direct support to faculty for Bb training, troubleshooting, and best practices for leveraging Bb in blended and online learning


It's time to move to a new LMS

To better meet the current and future needs of students, faculty and staff, MRU’s learning management system (LMS) is being renewed.

Between Feb. 1 and 21, Mount Royal students, faculty and staff can participate in the process to select a new LMS. Sign up to take a ‘test drive’ the three systems and/or view demo videos, and then give us your feedback here
