Registered students in online Penn State courses need to navigate among several environments in the World Wide Web. These include:
- Course Website: The course website contains the online material for the course, including lesson outlines, instructional videos and other resources, and a description of weekly assignments.
- Canvas: Penn State's course management system allows registered students to consult course calendars, communicate with instructors and fellow students, submit lab assignments and project reports, receive individual project critiques from instructors, take online quizzes, and check assignment scores and course grades.
- Zoom: Penn State's web conferencing software allows registered students to communicate and collaborate through online meeting rooms. Zoom provides chat, audio and video conferencing, and screen sharing.
- VoiceThread: Penn State's web-based platform for asynchronous conversation and presentations.
If you have any questions now or at any point during this week, please feel free to post them to the General Questions and Comments Discussion Forum in Canvas.
