The basic functions of an eLearning class every Naropa student will encounter in the course of the semester are covered in these six points:

  • Zoom,
  • Online Meetings (a.k.a. BigBlueButton),
  • How to access your online course,
  • Downloading your class syllabus,
  • Accessing materials in online sourcebook, and
  • Viewing course members and sending emails from within an eLearning class. 

You can view an instructional video or text-based instruction on each of those topics when you scroll down below.

Some of the more advanced topics are covered on separate pages:

  1. Discussion Forums   
  2. Assignments  
  3. Gradebook   

These more complex features are used in some Naropa University eLearning courses. Please contact the Distance Learning Office staff if you still need help:
