5. Get oriented to online learning
Mendocino College uses an online learning software system called ETUDES. Here is an Etudes Student Users Guide (link opens in a new window) that will show you the basics of how to use ETUDES.Very Important: Some instructors may require an on-ground, face-to-face orientation. Math courses use different software. Be sure to read the course description carefully, to be sure you can meet all requirements of the course. If you have taken online courses before, and believe you can succeed without attending the orientation, you may discuss this with the instructor, but be sure to do so before the class begins. You may email David Bushway or call 707-468-3054 for information about orientations and other resources.
