Here are a few tips that might help make things easier for you:

Learning management system orientation for students

Access to course(s) - items to consider:

  • Check your course syllabus to ensure the course is available online.
  • Review what early access means. Online course access is provided the day after the course registration is processed.

Printing study guides

If you are trying to print a study guide and all you are getting is what resembles a screen capture rather than the whole guide/unit, that study guide uses frames.

The way to print the full unit/guide varies slightly depending on which browser you are using.


Right-click anywhere on the content you want to print, and you should see a menu item called "This Frame" click it. Then click on "Print Frame." Your standard print window will pop up and allow you to pick your printer and print options, proceed as usual at this point.
