 Welcome to UWF Online!

Welcome to eLearning at UWF. Before you jump into your course content, take a little time to go through this orientation.

eLearning (elearning.uwf.edu) is the learning management system used for online courses at UWF.  Whether your course is fully-online, blended or face-to-face, many instructors use eLearning to provide access to course resources, activities, assessments and grades. You may have used eLearning in other classes and have probably noticed that not all online courses are alike. There are some basic things that you should know to find your way around eLearning and how to get help when you need it, in order to be a successful online learner.

In addition to technical support, UWF has many programs and resources available to assist you during your academic studies.
