All Classes are Now Online - Get Started Here

Vol State classes are moving completely online starting Monday, March 23. 

Transitioning to an online version of your in-person class may make you a bit nervous. We are here to walk you through it step-by-step. 

The first step is to access your eLearn page. Each student has one. This is the direct link: https://elearn.volstate.edu/. You may want to bookmark it. 

You log into the eLearn page with the same username and password you use for My Vol State. 

You will find your eLearn home page. There will be important announcements on the right-hand side of the screen. To the left you will see your individual course pages. Click on each course page and you will see a number of tabs for class content and other parts of the class. eLearn is easy to use, you just have to dive-in.

We encourage you to take a look now to see what is up for your classes. Be aware that some material may not appear until Monday, March 23. Instructors will be updating those pages regularly through the rest of the semester. It is important to check each eLearn class page and your eLearn and Vol State email accounts each day. You will see the eLearn email at the top of your home page and on each class page. 

If you are not familiar with eLearn, here is a web page with a 33-minute video to get you started: 

Have questions about eLearn? Join a live Q&A forum via Zoom to ask the eLearn specialists from the Distributed Education department any questions you may have about getting started in eLearn. Sessions will be open Monday through Thursday March 23-26 at 10 AM, 2 PM, and 7 PM each day. Login online at https://volstate.zoom.us/j/129932723 or call this toll free number (877) 369-0926 and use the meeting ID 129 932 723. 

Keep checking the announcements on your eLearn home page for more tips on using eLearn going forward. 

We're here to help you have a successful rest of the spring semester. If you need help, see the contact links on your eLearn page.
