Orientations and Tutorials

Narrated eLearning Student Orientation

Both new and experienced eLearning students are encouraged to watch the revised 11-minute student tutorial.

IMPORTANT NOTE: As of the Fall 2014, the name "eLearning" replaced the older name "CyberCampus". You'll likely hear both terms used interchangeably for a while. Also, many instructors refer to the eLearning platform by the name of technology it uses, that technology is called "Moodle." In the Golden Gate University environment all three terms ("eLearning", "CyberCampus" and "Moodle") mean the same thing: Your GGU online class space.
