Welcome to Spring 2019! Resources for Success

Welcome students both new and continuing!

It can be hard to get back into the swing of things after the holidays, whether you’re completely new to online study or have been at this for a while. Fortunately, there are a lot of resources to connect with at WSU to help keep you on top of your courses.

One resource to keep an in mind are your virtual mentors (VMs). VMs are all current or former Global Campus students so they’re familiar with the trouble you’ll encounter in your online studies. The VM’s goal is to help you get comfortable with the Blackboard Learn online learning environment, and to let you know what resources are available to you as a Global Campus student.

VMs are active in many of WSU’s Global Campus courses, so check your course space for a Virtual Mentor Forum in the discussion board area. The VM will be monitoring your course to help answer questions about using Blackboard, WSU resources, and basic tech issues. You can read the tips the VMs provide in the forum, or you can post your own questions. If the VM can’t solve your problem, they’ll be able to tell you who can help! However, VMs are not teaching assistants and cannot help with academic content, so be sure to send those questions to your instructor.

If you have questions about the award-winning VM program, you can ask your virtual mentor or email the program coordinator, Angela Bonner, at angelab@wsu.edu.
