Shaping the Next Learning Management Experience at Northeastern University

Northeastern is preparing to transition to a new, modern learning management system (LMS). Keep informed with the latest information and opportunities to engage in the effort.

A Modern Learning Management System for Northeastern Faculty and Students

To support Northeastern 2025, the university requires a modern learning management system (LMS) designed to meet the needs of all campuses and learners. The university’s next LMS must enable learning at any time, from anywhere, and with anyone.

The next LMS at Northeastern is centered on:

  • learning modalities that are mobile-first, social, and experiential;
  • simple and self-service integrations with the wide-array of teaching and learning tools employed by faculty and students;
  • high availability and reliability with a cloud-first approach; and
  • ease-of-use that enables and does not hinder the academic pursuits of faculty and students.

Opportunities to Engage

Faculty and students will have a chance to help shape the next LMS. There will be a wide-array of in-person and online opportunities to learn more, provide insight and feedback, pilot tools, and receive training and support. Stay tuned for a complete schedule of activities.

Learn about the current pilot activities underway as part of the search for a modern new learning management system.
