APU utilizes the "Blackboard" learning management system in order to facilitate teaching and learning, communication between professors and students as well as among students and learning outside of the classroom. From the AY 2016 fall semester, we introduced a cloud-based Learning Management System (LMS) called “manaba” for use in distributing course documents, submitting reports, and managing attendance.
