Blackboard Online Orientation
** Mandatory **


Getting started:
You are here due to your interest in online learning. In general, the mandatory orientation assignment
provides basic information for new online learners and a readiness checklist for previous online learners.
Be sure to complete the required form at the end.

Online students are expected to be familiar with the Course Management System (Blackboard) in order
to fully participate in the class (view announcements, course information, engage in discussions, and
submit assignments). Assuming that you have completed the online orientation and completed the form
at the end successfully, you are now ready to enter your online course.

If you need help, have questions, or encounter any problem with the orientation, please contact
Joan Weiler, Blackboard System Administrator. Phone: 828-652-0651 or Email: jweiler@mcdowelltech.edu.
