Upon admission to the university, new students are invited to attend an orientation that will familiarize you with the University Resources and computing technologies available to you. This orientation will introduce students to the campus network, the Blackboard online course management system, the Banner Information System, and software applications required in university programs. New students are also required to complete the Campus Policies tutorials in our University Online Resource Center, available on Blackboard. To access this course, you’ll need to log into the Blackboard system using your WesternU username and password.
Essential information covered in the computing technologies orientation is available in the Support area here as well as on the Technical Support website at techsupport.westernu.edu.
