Watch the Student Technology Orientation anytime!

This year, we are running live webinars to introduce students to the learning technologies available at VIU while protecting the health and safety of everyone involved.

  • Are you unable to attend one of our live Student Technology Orientation webinars this spring but still want to see what tools are available & how to get support?
  • Are you already familiar with these tools but want to refresh your memory on your own time?

Not to worry – we recorded the orientation for you! You can watch it whenever is convenient & as many times as you’d like.

Starting in Spring 2021, you will see a terms and conditions page when you login to VIULearn for the first time.

You must accept the terms and conditions to access your My Home page & your VIULearn courses. Once you accept them, you will not see this page again until the policies change or a new semester has started.
