Student Orientation to Online Learning

Welcome to online learning at Southside Virginia Community College!  We are glad to have you, and our goal in this orientation is to prepare you for online education at SVCC.   You have two options to choose from to complete this orientation.

    • Option 1 (Recommended):  Take the 1 hour Hoonuit video course entitled "How Do I Succeed in an Online Class?". If you are not logged in to Blackboard, you may need to log in using your Blackboard user ID and password.
    • Option 2:  (Recommended): Take the self-paced short course in Blackboard called "ROLL - Ready for Online Learning". To access this course, send an email to blackboard@southside.edu and in the subject type "ROLL Access" and your Blackboard user ID 

*Note: Students will have access to online learning courses for our new LMS, Canvas, beginning January 2019.
