5 things you’ll learn in our new Online Learning Assistance course

The Office for Student Engagement & Assessment has released a new Canvas course to help Eccles students prepare for online learning. The Eccles Online Learning Assistance Course gives you the resources you need to maximize opportunities both inside and outside the classroom.

5 things you will learn by taking this course

  2. Utilizing the University’s technology resources
    • If you are having difficulty accessing online classes due to an issue with wifi or technology, the Marriott Library’s Knowledge Commons is continuing to rent both laptops and WIFI hotspots to students who need access to them.
  3. Accessing the UIT Knowledge Base
    • The UIT Knowledge Base has articles that can help students and staff with just about any questions they may have when dealing with Canvas, Zoom, and other Technology.
  4. Taking advantage of the Business Tutoring Center
    • The Business Tutoring Center is a free drop-in service that assists students in developing critical thinking skills and effective study habits in a collaborative learning environment. You can view the schedule and courses available here.
  5. Logging into and creating your Zoom Pro account through the University
    • Every student at the University of Utah now has access to their own Zoom Pro account. The upgrade from Basic to Pro allows each student to host a meeting with up to 100 participants and a meeting time limit of 24 hours.
