Digital learning instructional strategy guide: Onboarding students to digital courseware

This strategy guide is a resource for faculty and course coordinators to develop a plan for onboarding students to using digital courseware as part of the learning experience.

Student onboarding is the intentional orientation of students to the optimal use of digital courseware. Onboarding helps students understand the rationale for the learning technology choice, how it supports their learning, and how to use the features. Instructors can use various delivery options to communicate the courseware’s purpose, learning data capacity, and technical features including an in-class demonstration, providing detailed instructions in the syllabus or sharing a screencast recording of the courseware navigation process.
