On-demand, interactive learning
Custom Learning Management System
Several years ago, SMCHS constructed the Learning Portal, which is a custom Learning Management System (LMS) that we built specifically for our students. The Learning Portal enhances students’ in-class educational experience by making it possible to connect instructors’ lessons with digital media, discussion forums, and other online technologies. Currently, every SMCHS faculty member utilizes the Learning Portal, ensuring that our students are prepared for a digital future that is prevalent in undergraduate, graduate, and professional environments. Through posting lecture notes, hosting virtual office hours in the evening, and even classroom recap videos, SMCHS faculty has never made it easier for students and their families to access classroom content from anywhere.
Turnitin LMS Integration
Preventing Plagiarism and Engaging Students
Turnitin improves the student writing cycle by preventing plagiarism and providing rich feedback to students. This technology has been utilized at SMCHS for many years to ensure academic honesty and provide students with dynamic grading and feedback on their assignments. Recently, we have incorporated Turnitin as an integrated feature in our Online Learning Portal, further enhancing the functionality of our already outstanding set of features included in the learning management system.
Our Learning Portal is used in both academic and extracurricular capacities; we have recently expanded the Learning Portal to deliver content to members of some SMCHS sports teams.
