Online Student Orientation


The Virtual Campus provides an Online Orientation to all students enrolled in a completely online degree program.  The Online Orientation has been offered since spring 2007.  It has been completed by over 3,000 students. 

The orientation is not a text based tutorial but rather a real time hands-on facilitator led tutorial of online learning, student support services, and assessments of what it is like to be a successful online learner.  The orientation is offered via our official Learning Management System (LMS),  Desire 2 Learn (D2L) every semester beginning the week before classes start and ending the Friday of the first week of classes.  Students who are newly enrolled into online programs are enrolled and it is mandatory to participate in this orientation.  Students are informed of this service by the Virtual Campus.  For more information please contact Lynne at 814-393-2278.
