The eCampus website provides links to a variety of student resources including information about getting started at UNK (how to register for classes on MyBlue, online student orientation) and tutorials for Blackboard. 

Students with Disabilities/Special Needs

UNK is committed to providing support for students with disabilities. If you are a student with physical, learning, emotional, or psychological disabilities you are encouraged to contact the Disabilities Coordinator at 308-865-8214. Students must have a reasonable accommodation plan (RAP) from the Academic Success Office to receive any accommodations.

Publication

Students are highly encouraged to publish their scientific findings. Advisors should suggest appropriate journals for publication and provide students with assistance in preparation of manuscripts.

Library

Access to the UNK library can be achieved at http://library.unk.edu. This link provides instructions on how to use the library, a link for asking questions 24 hours a day, and a search box for online access.

Computers

Computer use is important for all students, but it is essential for distance students. If you are having difficulties with your computer, you can receive 24 hr assistance at 308-865-8363.  All students are eligible for student discounts on both computers and software. Students can get more information from the UNK Technology Store.

Blackboard

Classes in the program are administered through the Blackboard courseware. If a student is having difficulty with the system, they should contact the computer help desk at 308-865-8363. Students should check Blackboard every day to get announcements and assignments from faculty.

E-mail

Email is an important method of communication at UNK. Every UNK student is issued a student email account that is accessible using an Internet browser or a POP3 client such as Eudora or Outlook Express. Correspondence with professors and the major advisor should be conducted through the UNK email address. Students should check this account on a regular basis.

Contacting Faculty and Staff

Faculty and staff, particularly the program coordinator Holly Peterson, are available to assist you with questions. Contacting them at msedsci@unk.edu will result in the quickest response, although they are also available for phone consultations (308-865-8043).
