Students enrolled in an online or hybrid course are required to complete BMCC’s E-Learning Orientation prior to the start of the semester.
To take this orientation, log into CUNYfirst, go to Class Search, and look up ELC under subject.
You'll get the E-Learning Orientation course after that. And you register just like any other course. You are not charged for registering for this course.
The course will show up on your Blackboard 24-48 hours after you register. Then you can begin and do it all online and finish at your own pace. It should take about an hour. This orientation is mandatory for all students taking online courses for the first time. However, there is no penalty for not taking it. We want to get you started off on the right foot by teaching you best practices for taking online courses.
