Share news:

COVID-19 has fundamentally changed the way we interact. As a result, the demand for intuitive online and virtual training and support has never been higher.

The College of Social Work (CoSW) at the University of Kentucky has responded to this demand in a unique way.

On July 1, 2020, Missy Segress, Director of Centers and Labs, announced that CoSW had launched an innovative new Learning Management System (LMS). This system is designed to revolutionize the way knowledge and skill acquisition are approached across all aspects of the CoSW. The LMS will provide a comprehensive learning and support apparatus for users from multiple areas of need and interest without limitations associated with a physical location. Acting as a hub for high-impact training, learning, and support opportunities, the LMS will empower users to control their own learning paths from anywhere, at any time.

“This new approach to training will allow participants increased functionality associated with accessing a wide array of continuing education options, tracking training histories, and reporting to licensing and regulatory boards,” said Segress.

The CoSW LMS will house training platforms for continuing education, student internships, and field practica, and foster/adoptive parent training and support initiatives, among others. The LMS offers fully online training opportunities, live (virtual) training sessions, and web events. At present, the CoSW LMS offers more than seventy training, education, and support opportunities. Development for additional offerings is currently underway.

“We recognize that people need accessible, efficient, and effective continuing education and training opportunities,” said Segress. “The CoSW LMS is all about a customized user experience that streamlines the process for obtaining high-quality training and support.”
