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 @colorado.edu 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 classes begin, you will receive a Canvas invite in your @colorado.edu email account. You can then log into Canvas with your CU Boulder IdentiKey (login name) and password, and find your course on the Dashboard.
Explore the FREE ALTEC Foundations course to learn the basics in 7 languages. This course also highlights the benefits of studying each language and introduces you to Canvas. Complete the course before the first day of class to set yourself up for success!
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 day. All class sessions will be recorded and made available in Canvas to enrolled students only.
