The Learning Management System used in courses at Rock Valley College is called EAGLE. It can be used to submit homework, to discuss course topics, to complete practice tests and for course related communication. Students can use the EAGLE mail interface to request help from their instructors or to discuss topics with other students enrolled in the same course. All students enrolled in RVC credit classes are given free EAGLE accounts.
Important information for Summer II and Summer III students
RVC is in the process of converting to a new LMS (Learning Management System) powered by Canvas to replace the current one powered by Angel. The LMS will continue to be referred to as EAGLE. As we transition to the new LMS this summer, some courses for Summer II and Summer III sessions will be using the new platform (referred to as EAGLE Canvas during the transition) while most students will remain on the old platform (EAGLE). By fall all students and faculty will be using the new platform which will still be referred to simply as EAGLE.
During this transition, please make note of which courses are using the new platform this summer (see list to right) and follow the appropriate link below to enter the correct platform. All support documentation for EAGLE is still available via links on this Web page, while support documents and help for the new EAGLE Canvas are available directly through the platform itself once you enter.
