Course Orientation Statement

Looking for course content that fits your learning needs, your busy schedule, and your multiple devices? Alternative Formats transform your course files into different formats to help you learn better. Next to your course files, click on the down arrow and select “alternative formats” to see your options. The file may take a few minutes to download.

Note: Remember, the quality of the alternative formats can depend on the original, so check the original file if something doesn’t look right.
