Learning online doesn’t mean you’re alone.

Online learning seems simple enough—that is until Blackboard decides to breakdown five minutes before class starts.

We’ve all been there.

Online learning has some massive pros — like saving time and money on commuting — but, it also comes with some challenges. Learning remotely can create a disconnect between you and the supports available ‘on-campus.’

That’s why we’ve created this guide to connect you with the online learning supports available at Humber and Guelph-Humber.
