Let-Your-Voice-Be-Heard Sessions

A series of town hall sessions were intended to share summary details and solicit final feedback from Pepperdine's students, faculty, and staff before a decision would be made to stay with our current LMS platform or potential select a different system. Due to COVID-19, these sessions were cancelled. Preliminary survey feedback from the community was favorable about our current platform and the University will continue with Courses (powered by Sakai). The University will launch a new LMS Study in 3-5 years as the next phase of due diligence review.

Community members are always encouraged to submit feature requests to improve our LMS. Due to COVID-19 and University financial priorities, new requests may be delayed for review until the 2021-22 academic year. We appreciate the community's understanding during these unprecedented times.
