The LEARN system at the University of Waterloo has an online learning management platform that provides access to school-related materials for students and teachers. Features of the LEARN system website include online learning and hybrid-class components, assessment access for students and general campus news and information.
The Content Tool on the LEARN system enables users to access course material and other documents. A Table of Contents link provides access to course syllabi. LEARN has discussion boards that teachers and students utilize to carry out online discussions on the course material, and users can access the discussion area by clicking on the Connect menu at the top of the page. The system connects with users' Waterloo school email accounts, enabling users to email students and teachers within their courses from the LEARN system, though there is no email box within LEARN for replies.
Student and teacher access to the University of Waterloo's LEARN system requires access to the portal with IDs and passwords. School members can create this information in conjunction with the school via the email address available on the school website's Information and Technology page, and the LEARN login page has a link users can click if they have forgotten their passwords.
