eLearning Support

eLearning in the School is managed through the University Learning Management System (LMS).

Blackboard  is the current University LMS. Sydney eLearning also uses a web-based application called SEAMS to help you create, manage and archive your unit of study (UoS) websites.

The University LMS runs on most used platforms, including Mac, PC and Unix machines. To access the LMS you need to have a computer with access to a broadband or wireless connection, and a supported Internet browser. Access to the LMS is through UniKey only. For further details please goto eLearning webpage SETUP YOUR COMPUTER.

To access the LMS as a staff member you will need to meet all of these conditions:

  1. Have a university of Sydney UniKey
  2. Be enrolled in the SEAMS database as a staff member
  3. Be currently enrolled in a UoS website or eCommunity
