The Enterprise Learning Management System (ELMS) provides secure online spaces for distributing course materials, communicating with your students, managing grades, and much more. ELMS, as an acronym also expresses the mission of the environment: Enhancing Learning for Maryland Students.

Term-based course spaces are automatically created for instructors; in addition, university faculty and staff can request spaces for organizations, committees, training, and non-credit courses.

Whether used for a course or other purpose, the system includes a set of integrated tools from which you can choose to meet a variety of needs, for example:

  • Upload and organize files, such as your syllabus, lecture notes, articles, PowerPoint, and images, for your students to access through the secure course site.
  • Send announcements to your students to keep them up to date.
  • Set up a gradebook and then send the grades to UMEG.
  • Use discussions to encourage student interaction.
  • And moreā€¦

The Learning Technologies staff provides workshops, consultations, user documentation, and technical support ( for ELMS.

To get started using ELMS, visit the Supported Tools page for ELMS (powered by Canvas), which includes: getting started, documentation, training, etc.
