In a significant move towards digitization, Debre Berhan University (DBU) has initiated a shift from traditional paper-based exams to digital assessments using an E-learning platform known as the Learning Management System (LMS). This transition marks a pivotal moment in embracing technology-driven solutions that offer innovative services for the entire DBU community.

As part of the university's paperless service initiatives, DBU has embarked on conducting various exams, including both regular tests and final exams, through the online Learning Management System (LMS) platform. This shift underscores DBU's strong dedication to digitization, underscored by the establishment of a state-of-the-art ICT infrastructure and the fostering of digital literacy among students and staff members across the university.

With the capacity to accommodate more than 2000 students, DBU's homegrown LMS enables the seamless facilitation of university-wide online exams. This comprehensive online examination approach has been made possible through the collaborative efforts of the university management, academic departments, and the ICT directorate, showcasing a harmonious synergy among different university branches.

Moreover, DBU is actively working towards cultivating a robust E-learning environment, which includes the establishment of an E-learning multimedia studio to further enhance the educational experience for students and faculty members alike. This strategic focus on digital transformation not only modernizes the examination processes but also paves the way for a more dynamic and tech-integrated learning ecosystem at Debre Berhan University.
