What is a Learning Management Engine?

A Learning Management Engine (LME) is a platform that serves as an "operating system" for online learning.  An LME is used by your instructor to deliver course material, administer assessments, and interact with you and the other learners in your course. LMEs are a staple of online delivery courses, and are also used in courses with other delivery formats, including hybrid and in-class. The University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies uses Quercus, powered by Canvas, the University of Toronto's main LME.
