Online Courses can be quite different from courses taken in a traditional on-ground classroom. Sometimes students are surprised to learn they were really unprepared for the online environment. Due to COVID-19, we are adding additional resources to help support your needs.
The Student Tutorials page will show students how to post to discussion board forums, submit assignments, take online tests, and more.
New to Online
Due to COVID-19, face-to-face course materials are being transitioned to online format. Please view the materials that are available to help with the transition.
Online Course Readiness
The Online Course Readiness page will help you determine if online courses are right for you, how to succeed in an online environment, how to login to Blackboard, how to enter and navigate course, and information regarding the Blackboard Student Orientation course.
The Technology Requirements page will show students what technology is required for Blackboard. You should be able to use all of the main features in Blackboard, but certain features may require you to enable plug-ins or update its version.
Online educational tools should be accessible to users of all abilities. Please view the tools and link to their sites Accessibility page.
