myLC: Frequently Asked Questions

What is myLC?

What does it do?
myLCis designed to handle the day-to-day scheduling, management, and tracking needs of schools using competency-based grading or interdisciplinary learning.

Is this a grading program?
myLCis designed to aggregate and track credit. Many seminar, project, and place-based schools don't accrue course credit all in one place. myLCis designed to track this credit. If you have a robust grading program that works for you, I suggest you continue to use it. But if you are not using a Carnegie model of instruction, you may have found yourself frustrated with how to report learning. myLCoffers a simple set (growing every week!) of tools that allow credit and grades to be disaggregated and then reaggregated. Simply put, myLCprovides a structure that allows for highly creative interdisciplinary teaching, while separately keeping track of progress towards traditional credit.
