Georgia Perimeter College is pleased to announce that the University System of Georgia has selected Desire2Learn (D2L) to replace Blackboard (WebCT) Vista. GPC's learning management system known as iCollege will no longer be powered by Blackboard Vista per the recommendation of the USG Learning Management System Transition Task Force. The LMS Task Force was charged with recommending a Learning Management System to replace the current system that will no longer be supported by Blackboard effective January 2013.
An LMS software application is designed to manage online classroom activities and includes functionality such as a learning repository for course content, assignments, discussion boards, messaging, assessment, grades, and communications between faculty and students. The D2L learning management system offers us an innovative solution that is intuitive and user friendly with sophisticated course building capabilities, extensive reporting, assessment and collaboration options, and flexibility for matching the learning environment to the unique learning preferences of GPC.
This innovative solution offers the following and much more:
Feature-rich Teaching and Learning tools

Robust measurement and assessment options
Social learning and sharing
