Learning Systems Announcements

Put Some Tech in Your T&L

Academic Technologies, in partnership with DigitalEd, would like to announce the launch of the university-wide Möbius pilot. 

Möbius is a cloud-based learning platform for creating and deploying STEM course materials for all modalities. Providing lessons, assessments and interactive learning activities, it unfolds the potential for the STEM student to acquire knowledge at a guided yet self-defined pace. Möbius enables the following functionality:

  • Robust question type creation for various STEM areas.
  • A robust pre-created content pack catalog for various STEM areas.
  • Just-in-time feedback for self-paced learning with dynamic question types that provide students the opportunity to practice.
  • Flexibility in question development for faculty, with both no-code and coding options, which provide flexibility for transfer of content from various systems and creation of novel content in flexible ways.
  • Accessibility and security compliance with industry standards.
  • Integration with Canvas to facilitate enrollments, a consistent student experience, and automation of grading.

The pilot officially begins with Fall 2023 courses and lasts through the following Spring 2024 semester. Möbius will only be accessible via the Canvas integration and is open to all faculty, staff and students. For additional information, including demos, training, onboarding and support, see the go.vcu.edu/mobius page.

Interested parties should start by joining one of three upcoming Möbius demos:

  • July 12, 2023 (10am – 11am) – Register
  • July 27, 2023 (noon -1pm) – Register
  • August 8, 2023 (2pm – 3pm) – Register

Following the initial rollout period, a feedback form will be made available to all participants to evaluate the success of the pilot.

While DigitalEd will handle all technical support needs, questions regarding support for Canvas and any VCU-specific items throughout the duration of the pilot can be directed to the Learning Systems team at LSrequest@vcu.edu.

We hope you will join us!
