LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

Learning Management System(LMS) an integral part of online learning or E-learning. Online learning is moving from traditional class room to digital class room or virtual class room. 

Problem

§  Due to the current global pandemic COVID-19, Rawalpindi Medical University has closed its educational facilities as per the directive of the government.

§   However, it is imperative that other means of delivering education are used to ensure the cycle of academics is not disrupted

§   There is also a need to digitalize educational proceedings at the Department of Medical Education in order to meet the latest education technology trends.

Solution

§  RMU has started online teaching or e learning through  Learning Management System

§  The system is custom-made to RMU’s specific needs and the system structure has been tailored to our needs

§  The project has two phases

a) Short-term virtual education solution to tackle the current situation

b) Long term plan to digitalize education processes at DME to assist management, teachers and students
