The spring 2018 Online Student Orientation is geared toward the first-time learner or those new to online learning at IUP. Students are encouraged to participate in this learning opportunity.

The spring 2018 OSO will be offered January 15-19, 2018.

During this five-day interactive online workshop, students participate in activities designed to familiarize them with the common tools used in online courses at IUP. The OSO will also assist students in planning for successful participation in distance education courses. Specifically, students will:

  • Identify the skills necessary to be a successful online learner.
  • Identify IUP resources available to online learners.
  • Navigate the learning management system.
  • Use various features of the learning management system.

Both a Moodle and a D2L Brightspace version of the OSO are available. Students can register for the OSO by completing the Online Student Orientation registration form.
