iLearn Overview

iLearn, which stands for Innovative Learning Environment and Research Network, is a web-based “collaborative learning environment” built to support formal and informal collaboration, ranging from fully online and face-to-face courses to faculty committee work and student clubs.  The system provides a range of communication and information management tools designed to facilitate interactions with content, between instructor and students, and peer to peer.

 Create Your Course site

Faculty can create their own courses in iLearn. The self-service creation method removes any lag time you experienced waiting for your course to be created. In addition, this process removes the need for a roster association; when you create your site, your roster is automatically added. This document provides detailed instructions for accessing the Worksite Setup tool and using it to create your iLearn course sites.
