The AsULearn Essentials course is a five-week, lightly facilitated, asynchronous, cohort-based course aimed at helping faculty become acquainted with Appalachian State's Learning Management System (LMS) AsULearn. Faculty will gain experience using AsULearn from a student's perspective, as well as practice using some of the most common educational technology tools in their own AsULearn course. Deliverables for this course have been designed to assist faculty with creating and building their own AsULearn course.

Upon successful completion of all four learning modules, faculty will earn the AsULearn Essentials Badge indicating that they have mastered the basic functions of the LMS.
