Get ready to learn online

We've compiled a list of resources to help you get prepared for the online learning environment.

Online Learning Resources

You can also log in to Canvas to get familiar with the online learning environment. Need tech support? Email or call START (Student Technology Advice and Resource Team).

Do you need to check out technology to study online?

To be successful, we highly recommend you complete your online studies on a laptop. Request technology by filling out this brief survey: Student Technology Checkout Request. Edmonds College has a limited number of Chromebooks and equipment that we can lend to students, but we will do our best to accommodate as many students as possible. 

Update Sept. 17: We are temporarily out of Chromebooks to loan to students. Please go ahead and fill out the Student Technology Checkout Request form, and you'll be added to our waitlist. When Chromebooks become available, they will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis. 

If you do not have internet access or cannot complete this survey online, please call 425. 640.1101 for assistance by phone, or send an email to start@edmail.edcc.edu with “Technology Need” in the subject line of your email.

In order to qualify for the technology equipment loan program, you must be enrolled for fall quarter 2020. If approved, you will be required to sign a Student Mobile Device Release agreement and may be required to provide proof of enrollment at the time of equipment pick-up.

Equipment will be distributed (while supplies last) starting Aug. 24. When you fill out the technology request form, you will be able to choose the date and time you pick up your equipment.

Students can request WiFi hotspots by contacting START. We will have expanded support hours during the first week of fall quarter, and will update the website.
