New Student Orientation

If you are taking an online course at Humber College, there are various learning platforms that your course may be taught through. These learning platforms are your online classrooms. The course site is where you will find your course outline, textbook requirements, class materials and meet your fellow students and instructor.  To see what platform you will be using for your course, proceed to the next section.

Question about whether a textbook is required? Generally the instructor will post the text book in the course site and it might be best to wait till you have access to the course to ensure you get the correct book.  Want to check early?  See if yours is listed on the Humber Bookstore site.


Where do I access my course?

Humber College uses a variety of different learning management systems (LMS), Blackboard, Ontario Learn and Education Systems. Please check the course code you are registered in and select the section number at the end of that code, that is applicable to you. Have a look below for more information on our online learning platforms and things you will need to know when taking an online course.
