Online Orientation Phase Two Now Live!

by Kathy Sundin on January 26, 2015 in Online Orientation, The Center for eLearning


VSU launches the second phase of the Online Orientation. Phase two includes modules focused on student academic success; gaining practical work experience and employment after graduation; tutoring in core classes, study groups, and success workshops; career counseling; and steps VSU is taking to ensure a safe campus environment.

The online orientation provides a single location for delivery of important information and resources for online learners.

“We are thrilled to see other populations of VSU learners—including traditional and face-to-face students—adopt this powerful information resource as well,” said Meg Giddings, director of Extended Learning and Center for eLearning and CEO of eMajor. “Delivering information directly to students, making it available 24/7 so that learners can get the answers they need late at night rather than losing sleep over an issue or concern, and ensuring that the information featured is fully vetted by the VSU staff dedicated to providing the service were the primary goals of phase one.”

Giddings stated that phase two continues to provide content and information to enhance the educational experience for VSU online students.

Phase two was developed in partnership with Orientation, Centralized Advising, and Admissions, and includes a preliminary orientation module designed for traditional (on-campus) students coming to VSU for the first time.

Accepted VSU students can access the Online Orientation from the MyVSU portal.

Online Orientation Coming Soon3

The new Online Orientation was launched on August 6. The new orientation program is geared toward new VSU online students and is integrated into the current MyVSU Student Portal. We hope this product will empower entering online learners with the knowledge and resources they need to successfully complete the enrollment process and navigate university systems and offices. The orientation will remain available to learners throughout their studies – providing students with a resource they can use throughout their time at VSU.

In order to provide a personalized experience, the orientation is designed to identify characteristics of the student entering the portal and display content relevant to that student.  While many portions of the orientation are applicable to all VSU students, some content will selectively display to certain relevant student populations.  For example, undergraduate students will have access to content specifically for undergraduate students, and graduate students will have access to content specifically for graduate students.
