Distance Learning

Learning Management System (LMS)

Manitoba Education provides a provincial Learning Management System (LMS) license that is available to all Manitoba K-12 teachers. Teachers can use the LMS’s interactive and collaborative tools to create innovative and engaging learning experiences, as well as post content and lessons accessible to students outside of the traditional classroom and school day. The communication tools allow students to interact with other students, locally or even globally, within the system’s environment. The tools can also facilitate communication among learning institutions, students, and families.

The LMS houses Web-Based Courses, and is an educational tool available to Manitoba teachers. The LMS can be used in a variety of ways:

  • in classroom settings,
  • to teach students outside the school or classroom settings, and/or
  • a blend of the two options.

Brightspace

Brightspace is the system used by the University of Manitoba, University of Winnipeg, Red River College, and University College of the North. By collaborating with D2L, Manitoba Education is positioning students to be comfortable learning in this platform and to be prepared for the post-secondary learning environment.
