United Online is the online classroom for United Theological Seminary. To begin, click on the login link in the upper right hand corner. After signing in, your courses will be displayed under My Courses. Click on the course name to access.
Prior to your course being available, you can find your booklist and syllabus at united.edu.
United Online is moving to a new classroom. Beginning this Fall, we will be using Canvas to manage our online classes (we currently use Moodle).
To get an introduction to Canvas, view this video, Internet2 net+ and Canvas. In a few weeks, you will get more information on accessing United Online at our new site and how to use Canvas.
Canvas offers students quicker access to discussion posts, assignments, and will allow you to have a calendar with all work due in one place. Faculty will have an easier time grading assignments and will be able to offer students more feedback. It offers more of what we needed in the way of student and teacher interaction, assessment, and reporting. Combined, these tools will help us meet the growing academic demands of the seminary and the changing online learning environment.
Will Canvas work on my mobile device?
Canvas is built on open web standards and uses minimal instances of Flash, so most features are supported on mobile devices.
Will files that I had in Moodle be moved to Canvas?
No. Files that you stored in Moodle will not be transferred to Canvas. You will have some time to download these files from Moodle if you need them.
What about my grades and course records?
Grades and official course information is kept with the registrars office independent of our LMS.
I created some videos through United Online. Can I still access them?
Yes. Video and audio content you created in United Online using Kaltura will be available in Canvas. With the new interface available in Canvas you will also have greater ability to create, edit, delete, and manage your videos.
