If you are a student who has never taken a distance learning course, it is highly recommended that you attend an orientation session on the VWCC campus or complete the online general distance learning orientation session. You will find a link named Orientation on your Blackboard course to complete the online course orientation for your instructor. Each instructor determines how the completed online orientation will be recorded and evaluated but the requirement should be met either by attending the campus orientation or completing the online orientation.
Note: For detailed information about the Distance Learning Orientation, please review the Distance Learning Student Letter which will be sent out to you by mail and emailed in early August 2012.
