The LMS also supports hybrid course offerings. Through the LMS students have access to course communication tools, discussion forums, course announcements, online tests, handouts and an electronic gradebook allowing students to monitor their course progress. An overview of the LMS is available to degree seeking students and to new faculty during their IT orientation. Additional training is available by request. The LMS is accessible through MyAUR. Course homepages will appear under the link “my courses” before the start of classes. LMS resources and video tutorials for students and faculty are available from the Helpdesk tab in MyAUR.
