Welcome From Your Instructor

Hello and welcome to our UTRGV Online Orientation. I am happy that you have decided to take an online course with us. 

My name is Eric Silva, and I’m an Instructional Designer with the Center for Online Learning and Teaching Technology, and I will be your facilitator for this orientation. As a current student in a fully-online program, I’ve taken a close look at the many aspects of online learning and identified important topics that you should be aware of before the first day of class. It is my hope that at the completion of this orientation you will be well prepared for your transition to online learning. If you have any questions regarding the course content, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me or our COLTT Help Desk.
