Orientation for Online Courses
Special orientations for eLearning and hybrid courses are offered, and sometimes required:
A course orientation is an opportunity for instructors to provide students with the information they need for an online course. A course orientation can be presented in a variety of ways:
- Online self-paced - all orientation information is available online for you to complete at your convenience.
- Online chat - participation is in an online chat room on a specific date and time.
- On-Campus Meeting - an optional orientation provided by your instructor.
All eLearning and hybrid course orientations, regardless of how they are presented, are designated either Required, Recommended, or Optional.
Failure to participate in a REQUIRED orientation may jeopardize your grade and/or enrollment in the course.
In addition to online course orientations, the College offers general orientation sessions for all new students. These sessions are offered face-to-face and online. Face-to-face sessions that offer help with advising and registration to new students are called Advising Sessions. In the future, online versions of these will be offered as well.
