learning management system
Learning Management System

The LMS allows us to account for whom attended what course , when and which Department they are from.

We are able to report utilization of our center to BWH and it's reported based on departmental usage

Also the participants have a profile that tracks all courses they have taken at STRATUS they can review course materials pre, post course also sometimes we might associate post course quizzes, survey and evaluations to a particular course

The system also has a library are that we can post videos, reading materials etc for the users

So I take an anticipated attendance list

Email the expected participants have them create an account (one time thing) then I will assign them to there upcoming scheduled course

Then the day of the system generates a roster in which we also take attendance from and gives us attendance reports

Monthly yearly and so on
