Online Tips and Resources: Here are some tips to maximize your academic success. 

Saddleback provides a student online support website which you may wish to access.  It can be accessed from the Saddleback College homepage.  If you are new to blackboard, Click on "Online Education” at the top of the page and then on “Student Technical Support” in the dropdown box.    Here you will find blackboard tutorials and the answers to many other questions about issues such as how to log in to your email.  If you have not taken an online course before, I highly recommend that you visit this site a few weeks before your class begins.

Once the course has begun, you will find online support in the "Online Support Center" in the drop down box.  There you will find answers to many frequently asked questions as well as a link to a person who can assist you with any questions you might have.
