What’s new?
The UC Learning Center is getting a well deserved overhaul this summer. Since the system first launched nine years ago, technology has rapidly accelerated, and as this will be its first major upgrade, the changes will be a win for everyone. It will be easier to navigate and find your courses, more reliable on all web browsers, and in general a much more user-friendly experience.
