Important Academic Technology Information
Online Academic Integrity Requirement
If it is determined that persons other than the student are accessing a student's records in the Canvas classroom, the student will be removed from the class and receive a final grade of "F.” While students may have provided written consent for a third party to receive information regarding their educational records, that consent does not permit any other person besides the student to complete or access coursework within the classroom or online setting.
Computer Use Information
Do you need a computer for EFSC classes?
EFSC is committed to infusing technology across the college curriculum. Most of EFSC’s classes are complemented by online environments designed to facilitate communication, collaboration and dissemination of learning materials and resources. EFSC has a number of computer labs and resource centers available for student use. Basic computer skills are recommended for all programs of study, and you should be prepared to use technology in any course you take.
If you do not think your computer skills are sufficient, you should talk with an advisor. EFSC offers several courses and provides computer and Internet resources in the
libraries and open labs.
Classes using the online learning environment:
Online Classes: These courses are taught completely via the Internet. You must have access to a computer to take these courses. Before you register, find out if you are likely to be a successful online student by taking the “Is Distance Learning for Me?” questionnaire on the eLearning website.
Hybrid Classes: These courses are designated in the class schedule with section number 40 – 49 and
require both classroom and online attendance. You must have access to a computer to
take these courses. It is important that you attend all classes to be aware of classroom
meeting times and online assignments. There are computer and Internet resources at
the college in the libraries, open labs and cyber cafés.
Courses with Online Supplement: Any instructor may choose to use technology to supplement his or her course, so you should be aware that computer proficiency, as well as computer or Internet access, could be a requirement in any class.
Canvas Orientation: All New Students must complete the Canvas Student Training prior to accessing their courses in the Learning Management System. When first logging into the myEFSC portal, students should look for the Canvas Online Classroom icon and click the button to log into the training. The Student Training course opens on the Welcome page. You should read the Course Announcements then click "Modules" to begin the training course.
