E-Learning Orientation – Tuesday, Sept. 10th (SJAM Library)

Students who are registered in one or more e-Learning courses this semester are required to attend one of the e-Learning orientations being offered in the SJAM library on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 (all blocks). If a student has already taken an e-Learning course, they are still required to attend one of the orientation sessions.

Orientations run approximately 75 – 90 minutes and begin at the start of each class period (not during lunch). Students are to attend the orientation during their spare or e-Learning period wherever possible.

If a student does not have a spare then they must decide which class they will need to miss for their orientation.  In such cases, students will first visit their scheduled class (if they do not have a spare) and show their e-Learning course on their timetable to their classroom teacher.
