Learning Made Simple (LMS) gets new look on Aug. 9; planned downtime on Aug. 7-8

LMS is getting a new look (user interface) on Aug. 9! This makeover comes as our vendor, SumTotal, upgrades our current system to provide users with a more user-friendly design while adding new functionality for LMS administrators.

Your current resources and information will not change; however, there will be some differences in terminology and navigation in the new interface.  You should expect some adjustment to the new interface when it becomes available on Aug. 9.  (Please note: If you are uncomfortable with changes such as these, you may want to complete any required annual trainings prior to the upgrade). 

From now until Aug. 7 at midnight, the current LMS will continue with its current format.  From Aug. 7 – Aug. 8, LMS will not be available while the new configuration is put into place.  LMS will be available again on Aug. 9.   

New LMS Tutorial Modules for learners and managers will be created to help you learn more about the new interface.  Stay tuned for more details in the coming months about any training that may become available prior to and after our Aug. 9 Go-Live.    

Dates to remember: 

  • August 7-8: LMS is not available to users
  • August 9:  New user interface in place and available to users.
