New Student Orientation

Faculty and students alike can benefit from the New Student Orientation. This orientation is available without a login so students that have been accepted, but login credentials have not yet been set up can benefit from the information.   


Blackboard Resources

Athens Technical College has a Blackboard Orientation available to all students.   Any student taking online or blended courses should complete this orientation before the first day of class.   


Blackboard offers a Browser Checker for anyone using Blackboard to ensure the computer used is compatible with Blackboard.  


Blackboard also offers videos to introduce the various tools in Blackboard that students may be required to use in the course.  A list of videos recommended by the CTL is included in the solution article Blackboard Orientation Videos.


Athens Technical College Resources

The Center for Teaching and Learning has created a Solution Center where the answers to frequently asked questions are found.  If the answer to your specific question isn’t in the Solution Center, a Support Request can be created for one-on-one assistance. 


Once students are able to log into Blackboard, there are two virtual organizations that serve as helpful resources for students; the Writing Center and the Virtual Library.  All students should see links to both organizations at the bottom of their Blackboard Dashboard.
