If this is the first blended learning course you have ever taken using moodle, then I strongly urge you to do at least one of the following:

  1. Attend one of the on-campus “Student online Orientation” sessions held during orientations every trimester or during face to face sessions.  

  2. Review the information provided in the online “Student Orientation guide at the Digital School website” site

  3. Check out the Readiness Self-assessment Questionnaire  and the Online Student Readiness Tutorials
