E-Learning Guide for Students

This guide, created by the Center for Teaching Excellence and Innovation (CTEI), was developed partially in response to concerns raised by students in Remote Learning Satisfaction surveys, distributed shortly after the transition from in-class courses. The guide contains information for how to use two of the most commonly-used programs at Rush University: Blackboard and Zoom, among others. It also has information about accessing Rush University Library services online.
