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.
No registration required--just choose a date from the Online Learning Orientation Schedule (PDF).
Campus orientations are held in Room L244 on the Southwestern College Chula Vista campus, across from the library entrance. If you aren't sure how to get to the SWC Library, check out the Southwestern College Campus Map.
If you are taking a course in Canvas this semester, you have the option to attend an online orientation! These sessions will use ConferZoom videoconferencing. No account is needed; just use the link to go to the Zoom orientation site a few minutes before your orientation's start time, download if prompted, and join the meeting. To arrange live captioning, email firstname.lastname@example.org 72 hours in advance.
If you aren’t able to attend a live orientation, you can watch a video version of both the Canvas and Blackboard orientations--just visit our Orientations page.
