Students enrolled in online, hybrid, and HyFlex courses are welcome to attend a virtual orientation to Online Learning. Orientations for fall 2022 are finished. Check back here in late fall to see dates and times for spring 2023 orientations.
Please note the following:
- These orientations are NOT course-specific.
- Each orientation covers the same material, so students don't have to attend each session.
