Blackboard Tutorial Orientation Materials
Skill Development 10: How to Be a Successful Online Student is a
brand new course created for those students who have never taken an online course, or for those who would like to improve their own outcomes of online courses. This course is a 3-week 1-unit course that will take place fully online and cover personal and technical skills necessary to succeed
in an online environment. For more information, please see
the course description in the class schedules.
It is strongly encouraged that new online students go through the Blackboard Tutorial, (Online Orientation). By
completing the Tutorial, you will learn how to log-in and navigate
through the Blackboard® course management software. You can either
view the tutorial on our website, or come to a live session at
the Rocklin Campus.
Please note: If you use Internet Explorer, you should also go through the Browser Tune-up so that it will have the plug-ins needed to use the Blackboard Online Course management system.
