The IMS Online Learning Center is a new website offering access to our latest IMS Online programs, beginning in October, 2021. We built the IMS Online Learning Center after receiving feedback from students and teachers seeking a simple and convenient way to access all of their IMS Online programs in one location. While your past online programs will remain in their existing location at this time, new programs, beginning October 1, 2021, will be offered in the Learning Center.
