Orientation Information

To Contact


The Online class will have a mandatory, one-hour, orientation session that must be completed by the first day of class, even if you have had an online class before.  Keep in mind, the orientation will ask you to do several things in D2L (Desire 2 Learn).  You will not have access to D2L until the week before class begins!  This semester, if you are enrolled in my class, I will give you two options

  1. You may attend the In-Person Orientation (highly recommended if you haven’t had an online course before). The Date for the  In-person Orientation this Fall 2014:  Tuesday Aug 26th 5:30-6:30 pm in the Learning Resource Center (LRC) room 141 on the Sac City College Main Campus.  Please wait in the lobby of the LRC and I’ll come get you and escort you to LR 141.  OR….
  2. You may view the Orientation Vieo File  (highly recommended if you have already had an online class in the past).

The Video is NOW UPDATED for Spring 2014   http://saccity-online.org/de/itv-archive/nutri-300/

If you choose this option be sure to watch the video the week before the in-person orientation is held.  If you do not complete the tasks asked of you in the orientation video by the date/time of the in-person orientation you may be dropped for missing the mandatory orientation!  This video was created for MY ONLINE NUTRI 300 courses.   Note:  You will need Adobe Flash Media Player to play this video.
