- Student Online Training
As we are providing the necessary technology training for you to learn how to teach online, we are also providing 19 sessions for students to learn how to access their classes and be a successful student in an online learning environment.
These student sessions begin Wednesday, March 18, and conclude on Friday, March 27. Students will learn how to log into D2L, access coursework, view and take quizzes, submit assignments, log into Zoom, and develop an understanding of synchronous and asynchronous classes. Please encourage any student with whom you are in contact to review the resource link and sign up for training.In addition, students are asked to use personal laptops, Internet connections, and related devices whenever possible to access online course materials. For those students who do not have access to a computer and/or the Internet from home or from alternate locations, we will be happy to assist them by providing loaner equipment through the conclusion of the semester. If students have specific equipment needs, please ask them to complete the Request access to technology equipment form.
