If you are new to online learning at Wake Tech, you must complete eLearning Intro before you can register for an online course.

eLearning Intro is a FREE orientation available in Blackboard. You can take it at any time! It provides a series of quizzes to assess your knowledge and learning modules to assist you with:

  • Online Learning Expectations: persistence and time management skills for success online
  • Using the Computer: for completing assignments and assessments online
  • Blackboard Bootcamp: how to navigate, communicate, and collaborate on Blackboard 

Each module takes between 30 minutes and 2 hours to complete; most students complete all three modules in 1 to 4 hours. You must score 90 or higher on the pre-test or post-test of each module to move on to the next one. After you’ve completed all three, you’ll be able to register for an online course in approximately 2 to 3 hours. 

Be sure to check your priority registration dates on the Records and Registration Web Page.
