New Employee Technology Orientation

The training is divided into the following technology categories. You can select each category from the following list or you can begin with the Local Area Network orientation and let the tutorial carry you through to the end.

Network Orientation, which provides an overview of the VWCC local area network, information about VWCC standard software, etc.

MyVWCC Orientation, MyVWCC is a single sign-in portal that gives you access to enterprise systems such as Blackboard, the Student Information System (SIS), Library Services, the Virginia Education Wizard, and Compass Test Info. This access is based on your primary role at the college. Faculty and classified staff normally use different systems within MyVWCC, so we've separated the orientation based on your primary role:
