The learning management systems (LMS) make possible to:
- publish course material (textual documents and multimedia)
- create collaborative spaces for students
- retrieve students' documents
- design QCM for self-evaluation
Depending on the used technology, these platforms can also be used to set pedagogical paths which students must complete to reach the fixed teaching objectives.
All Swiss academic community members can access these two platforms through the Switch-AAI authentication and authorisation system.
A training on these platforms is available. For more information, see elearning.unige.ch
