What's Next in BOLT: Daylight, coming August 17th to BOLT

BOLT will have a new look and feel next month. The Daylight Experience is coming to BOLT to bring a new, modern, responsive design to BOLT. Have you seen Daylight? 

Prepare for Online Learning in 2017 Fall

Here are some tips to help you prepare for the upcoming Fall semester.

Check your schedule.
Make sure your schedule looks like you thought it would in MyHusky. Have concerns? Contact your advisor or the Registrar.

Check your email.
Instructors may email you prior to the semester with information.

Get technology requirements for your classes.
Read your instructor’s syllabus carefully and find out what technology is required! For example, do you need a webcam for the course? Will you be using Respondus LockDown Browser? Is your instructor using ProctorU? Do you need a clicker?

Update software.
Make sure you have all your software updates! For instance, if your instructor is using Respondus LockDown Browser, make sure to download it or update to the latest version. Always make sure your web browser and plug-ins are up-to-date!

Learn about BOLT.
Check out our Student Support page and visit our YouTube channel. We also have 24/7 support from our vendor. Click through the Support Portal widget in BOLT, or call 1-866-921-0473 any day, any time.

Register your Clicker
If your instructor is using clickers, register your device via the link in BOLT! If you do not have one, you MUST create a Turning Account by clicking through the Clicker Registration link in BOLT. You cannot make the account outside of BOLT- it must be created through BOLT to work properly with your instructor’s software- and score your clicker responses for grades.

New Student Orientation

Are you an incoming freshman? Incoming freshmen must complete the Orientation Seminar course in BOLT. Completion of the course results in a Certificate. You must receive a certificate to complete the course. If you do not, a hold will be placed on your account.

Transfer students do NOT have to complete the course in BOLT and will not gain access to BOLT until August 17th.

If you need specific details or have any concerns, contact for details.
