Welcome, NIC students! 

The Office of eLearning provides Canvas Student Training and other resources to help make your online learning easier. Hour-long, face-to-face training is offered every semester in the first and second week of classes. Look for the training schedule on the slideshows displayed on campus televisions and computer lab screensavers.

All students are enrolled in the Canvas Student Orientation— you'll find it in your list of courses. This is a self-paced, non-graded introduction to Canvas. You will not be graded or timed, and you can go through the material whenever you'd like. There is no instructor— and there will be no instructor feedback.


Are You Ready for an Online Class?

Taking an online class is very different from taking a face-to-face class. The Online Readiness Quiz will help you determine if online classes are a good fit for you.
