New Learning Management System!

CNCS Launches NEW Learning Management System! 

Greetings CNCS Grantees –

Today, the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) launched a new learning management system (LMS) for grantees. Grantees can now access online training courses via the Knowledge Network and the LMS. With Litmos, you will be able to track your CNCS training activities, store certificates of completion, communicate with course creators, participate in discussion forums and send messages to other grantees using the system. Litmos is also mobile responsive, meaning you can now complete CNCS online training courses using your smart phone or tablet.

CNCS online training courses will also remain publicly available on the Knowledge Network until June 2017. Thereafter, you will be directed to the LMS to complete CNCS training courses including any courses required by your CNCS grant.

In the coming days, you will receive information from your Program on how to access and use Litmos. In the interim, we encourage you to check out the Getting Started Guide on the Litmos Training Resources page.

We know this change may generate questions and we've developed and updated a list of Frequently Asked Questions, posted below. If you have additional questions please contact the Service Resources team.
