Master of Professional Studies in Product Management > Admissions > Online Learning
The MPS in Product Management uses ELMS (Enterprise Learning Management System) as the online learning environment. ELMS provides access to static course content (e.g., syllabi, schedules, announcements, video lectures, etc.), as well as access to interactive tools (e.g., discussion groups, live chats, and online assessments).
As an asynchronous experience, MPS in Product Management students are NOT regularly required to login at a specific time to participate in course activities. Students access and complete course work at any time during the assigned week. The occasional synchronous interactions are available by appointment at a variety of times to accommodate student schedules.
To get started, click here. The course instructor must first load the online course into ELMS. Once the course is in ELMS, registered students have automatic access. This occurs no earlier than 72 hours prior to course start date and no less than 24 hours prior to course start date. Only students who are registered and on the official class list can access the course. If students register late, it may take up to 24 hours for ELMS to give online access. If canceled for non-payment, students lose access immediately.
