E-Learning Services

Welcome to the Department of Curriculum Innovation & E-Learning at the University of Dayton. Our goal is to support innovative teaching and learning initiatives for on-campus and online programs while maintaining high quality support of our existing solutions.


Isidore is the University of Dayton's Learning Management System (LMS) that runs on the Sakai platform. Named after St. Isidore of Seville, the patron saint of students and schoolchildren and recently recommended for patronage of computers and the Internet, this server is intended as a place for students to learn, share ideas, and present their work to the world.  Isidore is maintained by the E-Learning Lab. Please feel free to contact the lab at any time with questions, comments, or feature requests.

This is a very effective tool at detecting plagiarized work, and as such should serve as a good way to ensure the integrity of the grades earned by all students.
