Distance Education Student Resources

Bb Student Orientation

The Distance Education Department is here to support your success, and If you have never used a Learning Management System (LMS) or Bb, we provide convenient orientation options.

A web based Bb Orientation Course is available to students who have enrolled in any course.

These orientations have a continuous start date to accommodate part of term course students. Additionally, we offer regularly scheduled live orientation sessions at the start of every semester and by request for those students starting a part of term course.

Your Web Courses become available based on the actual course dates listed in the Course Schedule, but if you've completed your registration you can login to Bb any time.

Are web-based classes for you?

Web based courses are not easier.

There are many benefits to taking your classes online. You have more time at home and you might save on gas. The courses, however, are just as rigorous.

If you are wondering whether enrolling in a fully online course is right for you, please read more...

If you enjoy the classroom experience and frequent in-person meetings with professors and classmates, then you may wish to take your classes on campus.
