Lessons learned: Leveraging your LMS to support remote and hybrid learning. A panel discussion with Vermont educators

How are lessons learned from remote and hybrid learning informing how we select and leverage an LMS as we redesign our learning landscape? Panelists will share their experiences with their LMS platforms including Schoology, Canvas, and others. We will explore how these platforms are currently being used to support remote and hybrid environments. Additionally, panelists will provide their insights on how well their platforms integrate with other platforms including their SIS.

We will have time for Q&A, so please join us for an interactive discussion.
