Launching a New Look and Feel for eLearn!

Capilano University is excited to announce an upgrade to the look and design of eLearn starting September 1st after 8:00pm. These improvements will enhance the visual look to eLearn and improve functionality for faculty and students. eLearn now has many new plug-ins and H5P interactive elements to help make your course more engaging. Faculty can explore new interactive content including gamified interactions and upgraded quiz tools.

Be assured that your course content will remain the same as will the functions you use to build courses. These are added improvements that will not remove or alter the work you have done in eLearn.

As we roll out the improvements, CTE, IT, and MDX will be looking for feedback and suggestions for the next phase of enhancements to eLearn.

There will be a temporary outage to eLearn September 1st 5-8pm in order to have eLearn ready for Fall 2020.
