Distance Learning: A Guide for Students Distance Education Orientation

Many distance learning instructors require students to attend course-specific orientation sessions. Please refer to the current course schedule for information about orientation for a specific class. In addition, the distance learning staff offers general distance learning orientations for all distance learners. These one-hour sessions provide students with tips for succeeding as online learners. The general orientation also covers the basic skills required to function within the Canvas  online classroom. Refer to the Canvas calendar for dates of these trainings and/or come to room R110 in the David Glen Hunt Library to sign up.


Instructors are invited to contact Patricia Reyes if they wish to schedule a Distance Learning orientation. Distance Learning students are advised to download and review the handbook Distance Learning: A Guide for Students  for valuable information about succeeding as a distance education learner. Students may also contact Patricia Reyes for specific questions about distance learning and/or distance classes.
