General Online Course Information
During the winter session all coursework will be online. Some online courses may have synchronous meeting times (which means that you must be online on certain days and times). To determine if your course has a specific meeting time, please contact the instructor. Instructor contact information is available on the ESU directory.
Upon registering at ESU you'll receive an ESU email account. You should check your ESU email daily prior to the start of your course for information and instructions from your professor and continue to check it daily for the duration of the course to ensure you don't miss important information.
Most online courses use ESU’s Desire2Learn (D2L) learning platform. After registering, you can access D2L by clicking the D2L link at the top of this page. Once on D2L, you will be asked for a username and password. This is the same login information you use to access your email and myESU. After logging in, you should see a list of all courses in which you are enrolled in the "My Courses" area. Clicking on a course title in that list will take you into the course.
For more information about technology and other considerations, please see the general online course information page.
