OLRN-0001 is a no-fee and 0-credit “mini-course” developed to help students understand the skills and habits needed to be successful in online courses and in using online learning technologies. OLRN-0001 will take you approximately 90 minutes to complete, but it does not require you to complete it all at once. Students who are new to online or hybrid courses offered by NLC or one of the colleges in the Alamo Colleges District are required to complete the Orientation to Online Learning prior to the first week of class or else you may be dropped from your FDE or Hybrid/Blended courses. Students in classes that are on-campus are welcomed to take OLRN-0001 as well.
If you have any questions about this Orientation or the Canvas learning management system, please do not hesitate to visit our eLearning Center website and LibGuide at http://alamo.edu/nlc/elearning. Thank you!
