Exciting improvements and enhancements are coming to UTC Online during 2013!  From free apps to new Banner processes, the Center for Online and Distance Learning continues to work to improve online and distance learning at UTC.

Did you know that you can access your UTC courses in Blackboard using your smartphone or tablet by downloading the free Blackboard Learn Mobile application?  After you download the app, you will be prompted to log in with your UTC ID and password.  Once logged-in you will see a listing of all of your available courses.  We recommend avoiding processes such as taking quizzes or working in the grade book while on your mobile device, but it’s a great way to stay connected to discussions and content while on the go.

Beginning Fall 2013, you will be able to search and register for online and distance courses with greater ease with more detailed search options.  Additionally, students will also be able to select online programs as majors during the application process.  With these changes, we hope to build a foundation for UTC’s virtual campus and eventually increase online and hybrid courses and programs offered at UTC.

Stay tuned to our tweets and blogs throughout the spring semester for tips and tricks to help you with your courses.

Happy holidays from the Center for Online and Distance Learning!
