  2. The course title is in a blue bar with "Online Resources" listed below. The first link in this section is the Zoom link for your class. Simply click the link to join the class session.
  3. Other links in this section are the End of Course Feedback link and course website (if your instructor has developed one).
  4. If your course is recorded, links to the videos will appear in this section as well. Recordings are added within 48 hours of each live session.

Joining Early and Exiting the Waiting Room:

  • Joining a course more than 15 minutes early will place you in a Zoom waiting room.
  • To exit the waiting room, click the "X" in the top right corner, followed by "Leave Meeting". This will close the meeting.
  • If you join the meeting within 15 minutes and are still in the waiting room and feel there might be an issue, please email

A short video demonstration is available to further illustrate the login process.

We hope this guide helps you to easily access your online course materials and attend your classes!
