Continuing Education's online courses take the learning experience out of the traditional classroom.

To successfully access online courses and materials, you will need to make sure that your computer is properly configured, and that you have the knowledge to use the tools. The resources below are provided to guide you through your online learning experience.


Zoom enables you to participate in online real-time sessions with your instructor and fellow students. Instructors can share their presentations, enable collaboration with others, conduct small group activities, poll students and more, all from virtually any device. Zoom sessions can also be recorded and shared in Desire2Learn (D2L) or by email.

Students do not require a Zoom account to participate in an online class. A headset with a microphone is recommended.

Learn how to join a Zoom meeting in D2L.
