All students enrolled in courses using the learning management system, Canvas, will have access to an online orientation. The orientation introduces the tools and features of the LMS, as well as provides tips and strategies for being successful in the online environment. Access the orientation from the Help menu on the Dashboard in Canvas, or from any course in Canvas from the course navigation bar.
First-time online students are automatically "enrolled" in the online orientation (VCO 101), and will have access to it through the Courses link on the Dashboard. To access the orientation:
- Log in to MyAACC;
- Look for the "My Classroom - Virtual Campus" web part (right-hand side of the page);
- Click on "Access my courses" which will open the Dashboard in Canvas;
- Hover over the Courses link on the Global Navigation bar (top of the Dashboard), and select VCO 101.
To best be prepared for your online course, complete the orientation prior to starting your online course.
There will be two optional sessions offered on the Arnold campus to help students acclimate to the new LMS and to taking distance education courses.
Monday, August 25 3:00 - 4:30 PM CALT, room 136
Tuesday, August 26 6:00 - 7:30 PM CALT, room 136
For your convenience, the Technology Learning Center - (TLC) LBRY 101, or the Computer Commons, CRSC 264, Arnold campus, will also be available to help students on a walk-in basis.
