Student Handbook

2. Online Learning

Kepler uses Moodle software for its course site. Each course has its own section. Students need a user name and password to enter the course site and will be emailed access information just before their first term begins.

The course site provides a well-organized format for accessing weekly assignments and related documents. Participation in online postings is a required component of your coursework. Kepler uses GoToMeeting for live sessions for lectures, presentations, or conferences between instructor/s and students.

Students may communicate with each other through online discussion forums, live interactions, and email.
