Getting Started Online will help you get more joy out of your learning experience, getting some "nuts and bolts" taken care of before classes start. Note that all instructors at UTPB have various ways of interacting with you. You may enroll in a UTPB course where the instructor uses the web to distribute materials for a face-to-face class, or take an online course.
Improving your knowledge and skills about the web or improving your computer's performance may be necessary. Check out Technical Requirements first. Keep the direct phone number to the Canvas 866-437-0867, or when inside the Canvas system on the left-hand side navigation bar select the Help & Resources link.
To familiarize yourself with UTPB and services provided to online students go to the Orientation to UTPB Online and self-enroll in the public Canvas Student Tutorials.
Are Online Courses Right For You?
You may access the self-assessment quiz, SmarterMeasure, to help you understand your strengths and to help improve your skills:

There are no "right or wrong" answers, and no one needs to know the results unless you wish to share.
