Whether you’ve taken an online course before or not, our Online Learning Orientation is for you. This is a short cuLearn course that goes through the nuts and bolts of learning online to give you every advantage of starting strong and staying resilient in your online courses.

The six short lessons cover the main features, benefits and challenges of online learning and explore various tips, including how to effectively manage your time, how to optimize your learning space, how to interact and engage online, and where to seek additional supports. You will hear testimonials from Carleton students, who share their best practices for learning online. Along the way, you’ll test your comprehension with self-check questions and wrap up with a feedback survey at the end.

This experience is completely online and will likely take you about an hour to complete.
