Learn Orientation Course

All faculty will be invited to join the Learn Orientation Course for Faculty on CalArts’ LMS, learn.calarts.edu. This course will provide tutorials for quickly setting up your course in Learn. The course is facilitated by CalArts’ online team and supported by faculty instructional liaisons—they will be available to answer your questions in the discussion forums. Invitations to join the course will go out by March 16; check your calarts.edu email for updates.
