Curricular Systems Overview

iMedEd is in the process of rolling out several new management systems for the School of Medicine.

They include:

Canvas Learning Management »

Canvas is our new learning management system (LMS).

An LMS is a software tool that enables us to support administration of a course with such features as course web pages, grade books, online quizzing and discussion boards, among others.

Canvas a replacement for the features we previously used through EEE and MERLiN. It will become the primary interface for course materials by our students and the location of Medical Education calendars for faculty, staff and students.

Canvas will be integrated with Ilios so that all curricular resources can be accessed via the calendar of a Canvas course.

ExamSoft »

Examsoft is a system that supports the creation, administration, scoring and analysis of assessments and exams.

Having Examsoft at the School of Medicine enables us to:

  • Maintain robust question banks
  • Securely administer exams on the iPad (as well as other devices) and limit our dependency on Scantron® forms
  • Analyze and improve the quality of our assessments
  • Track assessments in relation to competencies and objectives to support our accreditation/compliance efforts.

Ilios Curriculum Management »

The Ilios curriculum management system allows us to identify what is being taught in our courses and find gaps and redundanices.

Ilios also allows us to create a report of curricular data for annual upload into the AAMC Curriculum Inventory and Reports system.

All curricular resources for a course or clerkship should be uploaded to Ilios. These resources should be appropriately identified by topics, MeSH terms and learning objectives.

Access Ilios and log-in with your HS credentials.

New Innovations »

New Innovations is a medical education management system that includes tools to manage evaluations, case logs and work hours.

Our first class of MS3’s began using New Innovations on May 27, 2015.

Poll Everywhere — Audience Response System »

Poll Everywhere is an audience response tool that enables you to interact with your learners by asking them questions that they can answer via text message, Twitter or a web browser.

With this tool, there is no need for physical hardware, like a clicker device, and responses can be seen in real-time, embedded directly into your Powerpoint presentation (no need to jump between your slides and another window!) as well as from a web browser.

To access Poll Everywhere:

1. Visit: ›

2. Login with the account created for your course or department. Contact your department/course coordinator or Julie Youm for this login information.
