This Spring, to continue to better support the busy lives of students and employees at VIU while maintaining safe social distance, the Centre for Innovation and Excellence in Learning (CIEL) will be offering fully online orientations for VIULearn and other teaching and learning technologies that are supported by CIEL.

Students and employees can self-register for these webinar orientations and they will be offered every weekday at a variety of times the first two weeks of January.

The VIULearn Student Orientation webinar will briefly introduce the video conferencing tool VIUOnline Rooms (powered by Zoom). Participants will see where and how to access VIULearnVIUTube and VIUBlogs. Within VIULearn, participants will learn how to register for the self-paced VIULearn Student Orientation 2020-2021 course, which they will be able to access for up to a year. They can explore that course at their own pace to learn how to navigate VIULearn and practice various tasks and activities that they might be asked to complete in their courses. They will also learn how to adjust their VIULearn settings and notifications for the best online experience. There will be some time at the end of the orientation to directly address some participant questions.

Attendees will learn how to access additional support going forward, and will be introduced to at least one of CIEL’s frontline support specialists who students may interact with in the future. Follow-up resources will be sent to participants about the information covered in the orientation.
