Our New LMS

News Story

Pace is transitioning from Blackboard to a new Learning Management System (LMS), Classes. ITS is here with everything you need to know about the change!

As of January 2021, Pace has adopted Classes as our new learning management system. Below is a guide intended to provide you assistance as we complete the final phase of our transition from Blackboard to Classes.

Accessing Classses

To access your course shells in Classes, go to the Classes webpage and look for your courses either on the left side, or click the course selector tool (waffle icon) at the top of the page to search for the course name.

Need Classes LMS Training?

>> The Office of Academic Technology is offering optional Classes training. You can sign up for any of the upcoming sessions, or review past recorded sessions which are listed below the training schedule.
>> You can also join us during our weekly Classes office hours (Registration links for office hours are on the same page as all trainings, and below). All questions are welcome, especially from those who are beginners.
