In line with RevEd, our path-breaking post-K-12 curriculum, the University continues to seek approaches to reimagine and further improve teaching and learning methods. Starting Term 2, AY 2018–2019, DLSU embarks on the university-wide implementation of Animo Space, the new Lasallian learning management system.

The cross-platform learning space utilizes the best features of Canvas, used by more than 3,000 universities and educational institutions around the world.

Animo Space builds on our Lasallian faculty’s strengths in curriculum development and classroom instruction. The adaptive and intuitive nature of Animo Space facilitates seamless integration of traditional and virtual learning through enhanced teacher-learner engagement and its various immersive and interactive components.
