Follow these steps to complete the online orientation for all CIS Open Lab courses (except CMIS101—Computer Literacy).


  • Once in Canvas, select your open lab course.
  • The first module named Orientation in your open lab course contains the materials to complete your orientation. (Example: CMIS100 Orientation, Open Lab Orientation, CMIS100 Syllabus, and CMIS100 Syllabus Quiz)
  • After reading the syllabus and orientations you must complete the syllabus quiz.
  • You must achieve a score of 80% or better on the syllabus quiz. You may repeat the quiz as many times as needed to achieve the required score.
  • NOTE: The coursework modules will not be available, and your orientation will not be finished until you complete the syllabus quiz with a score of 80% or higher.
