These free student orientations to Canvas are not mandatory, but they are highly recommended if you are new to online learning or Canvas.
No registration is 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.
Can't make it to campus? Attend an online orientation! These sessions will use ConferZoom videoconferencing. No account is needed; just go to the Zoom Orientation site a few minutes before your orientation's start time, download if prompted, and join the meeting. The ConferZoom Participants Guide (PDF) can walk you through how to get connected. To arrange live captioning, email SWCDistanceEd@swccd.edu three business days in advance.
