Any questions that you may have during your studies can be directed to the teacher assigned to your course.
This information can be found in the 'Student Resources' section.
How Do I Navigate My Course?
Your course homepage should be similar to the one shown below for the course called 'Forestry and Natural Resources 12'. The 'Home' or 'Modules' tabs should show you the course in its entirety. Basically, start at the beginning and work your way through the course. Please pay special attention to course outlines and information regarding submitting assignments and how you'll be graded. These are helpful resources! The 'Assignments' tab will show you a summary of all the assignments that you'll find throughout the course and the 'Grades' tab will show your marks to date.
How do I get help if I need it?
You should see an "INBOX" option on the left column of your course. Select it, then select the course you're working on and click on the new message icon. You want to direct your questions to the teacher that is assigned to your course. If you are unsure about who that is, check in the 'Student Resources' section. The teacher will be in contact with you as soon as they can. In many cases, you can continue working in the course until they get back to you.
