Thank you for choosing language learning with ALTEC! Here's what you need to know before attending the first day of class.

 Read your registration confirmation email

After you compete your registration payment, you will receive a confirmation email containing your course Zoom link. You will need this information to attend class. Contact us if you do not receive this email within 30 minutes after enrolling.

Check your CU Boulder email account

Course notifications along with emails from your instructor will come to your account. If you do not have an account ending with this domain, you will receive an email from our IT team with instructions to activate your new CU Boulder IdentiKey. Depending on your email client and filters, this email may arrive in your junk folder. Please email us if it does not arrive within 3 business days of completing your registration.

Explore Canvas resources

Canvas is our online learning platform where you can find course materials, watch class recordings and engage with additional practice opportunities. A few days before your class begins, you will receive a Canvas course invite in your email account. You can then log into Canvas with your CU Boulder IdentiKey (login name) and password, and find your course on the Dashboard.

Coming Soon! ALTEC is creating a free ALTEC Foundations course to teach you the alphabet and numbers, greetings and introductions, and essential classroom phrases in 7 different languages. It also highlights the benefits of learning each language we teach and introduces you to Canvas.

Get familiar with Zoom

For our remote classes, you will need a fast and stable internet connection along with a high-quality camera + external headset with microphone for the best audio quality. Please download Zoom or update your desktop client, and then test your audio and video settings before the first day of class.

Use the Zoom link and passcode on your Canvas course Home page/ in your registration confirmation email to attend class each week. All class sessions will be recorded and made available in Canvas to enrolled students only.
