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 orientation session.

 

There are two types of orientation sessions for online students: General Orientation sessions which can be completed online and
Course Orientation sessions which are conducted by individual instructors.

Online Student Orientation

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

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

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

Course Orientation

 

Students should verify if they are also required to attend a

Course Orientation session as some instructors conduct their own, class-specific orientation sessions. Click Here to see if your instructor is conducting a course orientation session.


Course Orientation sessions are conducted by the instructor of your online course. Note: Not all instructors will conduct an orientation session. See the schedule below to determine if your instructor will conduct an orientation session.

In the Course Orientation, your instructor will cover information specific to the course and will answer any questions you have about the course. Examples of information covered in the Course Orientation include:


  • Syllabus information
  • Course expectations
  • Information about specific assignments covered in class
  • Special software, course materials and other requirements for the course
  • Setup of the online course in Blackboard

 

Where are the Course Orientation sessions?

 

All Course Orientation sessions are held on-campus. Specific locations are listed in the schedule below. If you are unable to attend your Instructor’s orientation session, you must contact your instructor immediately. Click on the instructor's name for contact information. Note: Some courses do not require a Course Orientation so be sure to verify whether or not you need to attend.
