College of Medicine – Tucson Launches New Online Learning System

Monday, June 4, 2018

The Offices of Curricular Affairs, Student Affairs and Information Technology are pleased to announce the launch of a new online learning system for students, faculty and staff to access curriculum and related materials for the College of Medicine – Tucson. With this implementation, ArizonaMed — the current online learning management system — will be retired.

“It was time for ArizonaMed to get an upgrade,” said Kevin Moynahan, MD, deputy dean of education. “I am very happy with the hard work our teams have done to implement the college’s new online ecosystem.”

Through MedPortal, a new online hub, users will be able to access the entire educational ecosystem, which includes the new systems MedLearn, MedReports and MedDocs. 

  • MedLearn is the new online learning and teaching platform that will replace ArizonaMed. Similar to ArizonaMed, students will be able to view courses, gradebooks, assignments and more in the online system. Faculty and staff can access MedLearn for learning management and curriculum delivery. Unlike ArizonaMed, MedLearn will be a more secure, tablet-friendly tool.
  • MedReports is the college’s new educational reporting system; it will provide flexible reporting options for staff and faculty.
  • MedDocs is a repository of guides, illustrations and video demonstrations that users can browse through as they learn to maneuver through the educational ecosystem and its components. 

From MedPortal, users can also access other online systems at the College of Medicine – Tucson and the University of Arizona.

To learn more, Information Technology will be offering a training session on Thursday, June 7 in the University of Arizona Health Science library (Room 2102A). IT personnel will be available all day from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to answer questions and gather suggestions and feedback.
