Welcome, NIC students! 

The Office of eLearning provides Student Blackboard Training and other resources to help make your online learning easier. Blackboard 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 screensavers. You can also find the training schedule by clicking the Training link to the right or going to http://www.nic.edu/elearningstudents/training.

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.

Note: You'll need Articulate's free mobile player to view the activities on an Android OS tablet or smartphone. Go to Google Play Store to download the player to your device.

Take the interactive online readiness quiz.
