Online Learning Student Orientations

These free orientations to online learning and Canvas are not mandatory, but they are highly recommended if you are new to online learning or Canvas. Orientations are offered at the beginning of each semester, and you can view this semester's schedule on the Online Learning Orientations page.

  • Face-to-Face Orientations: Campus orientations are held in Room L244 on the Southwestern College Chula Vista campus, across from the library entrance. 

  • Online Orientations: Can't make it to campus? Attend an online orientation! These sessions will use ConferZoom videoconferencing. No account is needed.

  • Video Orientations: If you aren’t able to attend a live orientation, you can watch a video version at any time during the semester--just visit our Orientations page.
