How do students register for Brockport online courses?

Students register for online courses as they do for any course via Brockport's online registration system. Contact Sue Derry at The College at Brockport via email or call (585) 395-5734 with registration questions. Students are responsible for completing all course schedule changes with the Office of Registration and Records.

How do I get help?

Accessing your online course or finding your Brockport NetID (username/password):
Contact the Brockport Help Desk at (585) 395-5151 or visit http://www.brockport.edu/lits/helpdesk/. Help Desk hours are posted on their website. You'll also find a link on the left sidebar of this page titled, "Brockport Help Desk." When you call or email, PLEASE indicate that you are an online instructor.

How do I access my online course?

Your Brockport online course will appear in your Learning Management System (LMS) site along with the rest of your courses. You can access your course at: http://brockport.open.suny.edu.
NOTE: You may also click on the link at the sidebar to the left titled "Access your Brockport online courses."

How do I communicate with my students?

Online students will be communicating with you and their classmates entirely within the LMS via Discussion Forums and Course Mail.

Should I have virus protection on my computer?

Always. If you do not have anti-virus software (e.g., McAfee or Norton), please contact the Brockport Help Desk at (585) 395-5151 for assistance. Be sure to set it up to update the virus definition files at least once a week. Consider using a personal firewall product, particularly if you use cable or a DSL connection to the Internet. Personal firewalls do cost money, but consider how much a loss of data or your computer would set you back.

What important dates should I note?

Click here to view the College's official Academic Calendar for important dates: www.brockport.edu/academics/calendar/. "Go Live" dates are generally one week before your course officially begins. You will need to ensure that the appropriate course areas and modules in your course are open for student access.
