Online Student Orientation

The orientation includes information on technology requirements, tips for being a successful online learner, links to campus services and more.

The orientation in Blackboard is available to you throughout the time you are taking online/hybrid courses so it may be used as a reference at any time, although you only need to successfully complete the Online & Hybrid Student Orientation Quiz one time, prior to the start of your course.

Once you have reviewed all the material in the module there is a short self-check quiz for you to complete. You will be reminded to complete orientation through a general announcement two weeks prior to each semester in which you are enrolled in online/hybrid courses. Course instructors will monitor to ensure students complete the orientation prior to the start of their online/hybrid course.
