Every course in our Academy starts with the New Student Orientation. We employ a scaffolded approach to prepare our students to begin their course and equip them with the best skills and knowledge that they’ll need to be successful. Students will begin with the welcome module by exploring the platform and topics such as Netiquette and Digital Citizenship. These modules are critical for learners to be reminded of as they start their online journey. The New Student Orientation also has how-to videos and guides for navigating the Canvas platform. Once students complete their orientation, the course shell will be available for students to reference throughout the year as needed.
