Moving to online learning

By now, you are aware that like many other colleges, Solano Community College is moving face to face classes to online instruction.

Recognizing what is key to learning online is very important; while online education is similar in many ways to a face-to-face classroom, there are key differences to pay attention to. This means there are opportunities for expanding knowledge, but also obstacles that don’t exist in a traditional space. This virtual hub is designed to both help the immediate transition to online learning, as well as provide key supports for future courses and learning. 

 

 

How do I get started?

Online learning requires three basic tools to get started. You will need to be able to access your email, find and submit online assignments and you will need to know how to join online meetings.
 

Student Gmail

1. Student Email

Use your campus email at school. Instructors will send announcements through campus email and will look for this address when expecting you to reach them.

Canvas

2. Assignments

Online classes use a learning management system called Canvas to assign and collect online work. Registered students have a canvas account, click "Access your course in Canvas" to learn more.

Zoom

3. Lecture

Online class meetings will usually occur in Zoom. Zoom is a video conferencing tool that works on computers, smart phones or tablets. Your instructor will send links to your lecture meetings through Canvas or email.

How can I get more help with online learning?

Online learning is not easier or harder than face to face classes. But this different mode of learning can require skills and resources that are unique. Each is important to your success and will require time to engage and master. If you have difficulty with the technology, the assignments or any other aspects of the course, your instructor is your best resource. Reach out to your instructor if you are having difficulty or do not understand an assignment.
