Service overview

myCourses is McGill's learning management system for online teaching and learning and is used in over 1500 courses per term by thousands of students. Most courses are using myCourses in a hybrid or blended fashion, as an enhancement to classroom-based instruction.

myCourses provides users with a web-based learning environment, in which instructors can upload course files, organize class discussions, collaborative group activities, and online office hours. myCourses is most frequently used by instructors to distribute course materials, quizzes, assignments and grades and feedback.
