Online Learning Orientations
These free orientations to online learning, Blackboard and Canvas are not mandatory, but they are highly recommended if you are new to online learning.
Campus orientations are held in Room L244 on the Southwestern College main campus, across from the library entrance. No registration required--just choose a date from the Online Learning Orientation Schedule (PDF). If you aren't sure how to get to the SWC Library, check out the Southwestern College Campus Map.
If you aren’t able to attend an orientation on campus, this virtual equivalent will introduce you to online learning and Blackboard. Learn how to log in, how to navigate Blackboard and complete assignments, and where to turn when you have questions. Just like in the face-to-face orientation, we also share tips for online learning and take you through a sample course.
Coming soon: Canvas video introduction!
