AsULearn (powered by Moodle) is a course management system that allows classroom interactions to extend onto the web. AsULearn lets faculty post course information, hold class discussions, create and accept assignments, and conduct exams online. AsULearn may be used to create a fully online course or to augment a traditional face-to-face class.
Only students who are registered in your course can access your AsULearn content. This enables you to quiz students online, track student participation, and post copyrighted materials for educational purposes.
AsULearn offers instructors many tools for teaching, such as online forums, assignments, online testing, wikis, and more. Course grades can be managed in the gradebook, and course files and resources can be uploaded into your course.
A variety of communication tools are available in your AsULearn course. Email your class (as a group or individually), allow participants to post questions and responses via a course discussion board, break the class up into groups for peer collaboration, or build a chat room for discussion between course members. You can also create web-conference sessions inside AsULearn that provide a place for you to meet with others online.
In AsULearn, students access all their courses from a common portal web page. A consistent navigation interface between courses makes using AsULearn easy for students, while allowing instructors to customize content areas.

Review and Evaluation
Feature requests are initially reviewed by Learning Technology Services (LTS) two times a year: fall mid term (first week of November) and spring mid term (first week of April).
