Learning Management System

Learning management system - coming soon to CDEM!

MCDEM proposes to make a learning management system available to all CDEM groups and to act as host, administrator and champion for the use of new technologies for learning and development in the CDEM sector.

The vision of the project is to:

  • Streamline and automate training
  • Share and consolidate resources
  • Introduce technology-enabled learning to the sector
  • Connect the CDEM sector, learners, information and ideas

The first round of scoping for a CDEM sector learning management system is now completed. Representatives from MCDEM, the CDEM sector and learning technology experts have shared ideas, questions, problems and solutions to enable the LMS project team to move onto creating a first draft of the potential site.

A LMS working group has been established; members will be asked more questions in the New Year and then provide CDEM fine-tuned input while putting the draft configuration through its paces! The system launch is planned for mid-2016.
