Student Resources

Getting Started with Remote Learning

The Student Resources page provides Illinois students information about learning effectively while engaging in remote instruction as well as accessing technology tools and tips.

For tips and tricks on how to be a successful online learner, check out these student resource guides from the Center for Innovation in Teaching & Learning and review a few of these blog posts from Illinois Online:

It also offers a virtual desktop environment allowing users to access applications securely, on multiple devices and operating systems including Windows, MacOS, Linux, iOS, and Android.
