Brightspace Student Orientation for Online Courses

All online course activities like taking a quiz, turning in an assignment, and online discussions are done through Brightspace, LSC-Online's Learning Management System.

Students enrolled in online and hybrid courses are required to complete a Brightspace Student Orientation for Online Courses before having access to their courses in the Brightspace Learning Management System. In Brightspace, you will find the orientation listed in your course list.

To access the Brightspace Student Orientation for Online Courses, login to your myLoneStar page , look for the PC mouse icon and its corresponding text label, LSC Online (Online Classes), to view your online courses. Once the link is clicked, a small window will open on top of the icon displaying a green button with white text that says "View My Online Classes." Clicking on this button will take you to your online courses.  The online student orientation is below your course list in a component called Community Groups.
