Course Management Systems


The two course management systems (CMS) at the U of M are WebVista (formerly referred to as WebCT) and Moodle. You may wonder why there are two, and you may not know which one is more suited to your use.

Why Moodle?

Why would you choose to use Moodle?



We all have this wonderful tool available for our use -- the U of M ePortfolio. The University provides individualized content for each of us, including a photo (UCard photo), contact information, college and major, transcript, graduation information, and so on. We can think of this as our electronic file cabinet in which we can store information by and about ourselves, such as writing samples, photographs or design samples, video clips, music clips, resumes, internship experiences or mentors. As owners of our information, we can choose to share either part or all of our portfolio with other individuals.

You can see your ePortfolio at Log iin using your InternetID and password.
