Online Student Orientation

Online Student Orientation

Online courses provide a flexible alternative to the traditional face-to-face learning environment. However, learning online is different than attending class on campus. Because the online classroom differs from the traditional classroom, it is important for you to understand how to succeed in this different environment by completing an online orientation session.

The Online Student Orientation will lay the foundation for your success as an e-learning student by explaining:

  • The basics of your online class
  • Computer requirements and the necessary technical skills
  • How to navigate the online classroom (using Blackboard)
  • Campus resources available to you as an e-learning student

Even if you have taken an online class before, you are encouraged to complete the Online Student Orientation to enhance your e-learning skills and to refresh your memory about the online classroom.
