A Learning Management System (LMS) is an application used as your online learning classroom or hub. It is where you can post and receive assignments, provide ongoing feedback to students, and communicate learning back to families. Every teacher in MDUSD should create and maintain an online learning hub for students using the appropriate LMS for their grade-level.

Google Classroom

Teachers can post assignments and resources, collect work, facilitate collaboration, & provide feedback. Google Classroom is MDUSD's official LMS for grades TK-12.  

Seesaw

Teachers can post activities and provide feedback. Students can use a variety of tools to create and post work, including text, drawing, video, voice, photos, and more! Seesaw is MDUSD’s official LMS for grades TK-2.
