What is LAMS?

LAMS (Learning Activity Management System) is an online authoring and learning environment specifically focused on supporting active and collaborative learning. Within the Faculty, LAMS is most commonly used in the creation and delivery of Team-Based Learning (TBL). However, the wide variety of learning activities that LAMS offers means that the environment can support a diverse range of pedagogies.
