How To Access Your Virtual Classroom

Virtual Classroom Guide for Ongoing Students

As you all know we will be moving classes online for the entirety of Term 2 (April, May & June). We will be using an online virtual classroom called BigBlueButton (BBB). If you are a returning student, your classes will be in real time. This means that for example, if you are scheduled to attend class on Wednesday at 9 am in room 222 for an Introduction to Marketing class, you should access your virtual class on that day and at that time. In other words, all your classes will run virtually at the times/days they are currently scheduled on your timetable.
