What should I do before class starts?

We want you to be successful in your online class! The first step to success is being prepared. 

Please make every effort to prepare yourself and your computer prior to the first day of class.  

Before class starts: 

  • Run the Browser Checker to determine if your browser is compatable for our Learning Management System : Blackboard. 
    • If you receive all green checks, the compatibility check was successful. 
    • If you received a red “x”, follow the repair instructions. 
    • For technical assistance, contact the LIT helpdesk at 409-839-2074 or helpdesk@lit.edu
  • Review videos on how you will submit assignments, view your grades, interact on discussion boards, and take test within the learning management system and attempt these tasks in the orientation course found in your course list the first few weeks of the semester.
  • Preview the course syllabus to purchase and/or gather required course material.
Registered course enrollments should display within 2-4 hours after enrollment but they will not be available to access until the first day of the semester.
