E-Mentoring to help UAM students with campus technology

MONTICELLO — The University of Arkansas at Monticello will offer a new program called “E-Mentoring” to teach students to use the university’s computer resources. It is also directed especially toward students taking online courses.

E-Mentoring will teach students the fundamental skills, including how to log on to WeevilNet (the student management system), how to access their email accounts, how to use Blackboard (an online class delivery system), and electronic library resources.

During the first two weeks of the 2014 fall semester, three computer labs in the Babin Business Center and two in the Forest Resources Complex will be reserved from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 21 and Tuesday, Aug. 26. All students taking their first online course at UAM will be encouraged to attend the free session.

Students will receive instruction suchc as how to connect their electronic devices with UAM technology.

UAM is also developing a fully electronic version of the E-Mentoring Program. Beginning with the spring 2015 semester, students who wish to take an online class will be required to take either the electronic version or campus instruction and must be successful in an online assessment before being admitted to an online course.
