  • Log in to Blackboard before the first day of class to get familiar with the learning management system and spend some time with the short orientation.
  • All eLearning courses are asynchronous, meaning there are no set meeting times. Create a schedule of your own to keep up with assignments and assessments throughout the semester.
  • Engage with your online community. Your classmates could be located throughout the world and each provides a unique perspective to the topic at hand.
  • Some courses require proctored exams. Check your syllabus to see if any of your courses have this requirement. If so, identify a local proctor early in the semester to avoid late exams. Exam information can be found at

    If you have more questions about taking online courses, contact UAF eLearning’s academic advisor, Brighton Brooks, at or 907.455.2067.
