It's never too early to begin preparing for your online class. There are several resources available to get you ready for online learning at the San Diego Community College District. Please watch the video below. (Captions are available when the video is viewed on YouTube.)

Readiness Assessment
Take the SmarterMeasure Online Learning Readiness Assessment to find out if online learning is right for you. It's a great way to prepare yourself for what to expect as an online student. When you click on the link above, you will be taken to a Blackboard login page.  Log in to Blackboard (student username is your CSID; initial password is your 8-digit birthdate [mmddyyyy - for instance, someone with birthdate June 4 1990 would have a password of 06041990]).  Once you log in, you will see an Access Denied message because you are not yet enrolled in the Blackboard course that contains the assessment.  You will find a button on the left labeled Enroll.  Click this button to self-enroll in the course so you can take the assessment by clicking on the link labeled "Are You Ready for Online Learning?"  Here's a short video tutorial showing what this process looks like:


Technical Requirements
Not sure if you have the technical equipment necessary to be successful online? You'll want to check out the Technical Requirements for Online Learning page before enrolling in an online class.


Schedule and Registration
Once you have taken the readiness assessment and checked the technical requirements for being an online student, you can access the course schedule to explore online course offerings. For questions about registration and waitlists please access the Registration Directions page. You will not be able to login to your online class until the first day of the semester.

Course Information Pages
Want to find out more about the online courses being offered next semester? Several online instructors post Course Information Pages with specific course requirements, textbook information, and other important details about the course.

Notification Email
Already registered for an online course? You should receive an email from Student Services with helpful information about logging into the course and getting started on the first day. Be sure to check your email as the first day of class approaches.
