Buffalo State provides a website for Online Learning (http://suny.buffalostate.edu/online). This website includes access to Open SUNY resources and an array of supports for students in the form of orientation modules with multiple resources for everything from gauging readiness for online learning to tips and tricks for success. Open SUNY is available to all Buffalo State students and uses the SmarterMeasure online tool to help assess student online learning readiness. SmarterMeasure indicates the degree to which distance learning and/or learning in a technology rich environment will be a good fit for the student and will help them prepare to be successful as a student. Upon completion of this assessment, students recieve a score report which will not only help them understand their strengths and opportunites for improvement, but will also provide resources to help them succeed. Students also have the option of completing a demo course that provides an example of courses offered using the Blackboard Learning Management System.
