I hope that your spring semester is off to a fantastic start. As a reminder, you have an approved remote learning accommodation. This accommodation applies to all of your lecture-style courses this semester. Labs and clinicals are being held in-person.

Our faculty are committed to providing you an extraordinary academic experience this semester. As an LIU student who will be participating in remote-learning, you want to make sure that you have all the necessary information for the first day of classes.

Accessing your Courses Online

Blackboard is the LIU Web-based course management system designed to allow students to participate in classes delivered online and in-person. Blackboard may be used for course materials, discussion boards, virtual chat, online quizzes, an academic resource center, and more.

Simply log into Blackboard using your MyLIU credentials at the time of your course. The Zoom Link to join your virtual course and any other material provided by your faculty member will be available. Please contact your specific faculty member

Ordering your Textbooks

To order your textbooks and other course materials, visit the online textbook section of the LIU Bookstore. You can search for materials by entering your course information and have your textbooks delivered to your home.

Support from Information Technology

As a remote learner, our Information Technology team has your back. IT professionals are available during class hours to help answer any questions. Please see below for some helpful tutorials regarding key technological resources.

To view tutorials, frequently asked questions, and contact Information Technology, visit the IT Support Page.

Preparing for Class Participation

It is important that you are still prepared to actively participate in class. It is expected that you have your camera on and be in a quiet space where you can engage in class discussion and hear class lectures. Be sure to complete all required assignments and follow the course syllabus in the same manner as a student participating in-person. 

Accessing the University from Home

You have access to virtual office hours and resources across the University. In addition to your success coach, all of our student support services and academic departments stand ready to support you as we begin the fall semester.
