Tips

  • 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 elearning.uaf.edu/exams.

    If you have more questions about taking online courses, contact UAF eLearning’s academic advisor, Brighton Brooks, at brighton.brooks@alaska.edu or 907.479.4706.
