Extended Learner Support Resources

Being a learner goes beyond just the classroom. For the best possible outcomes it is necessary to provide students with the proper outlets to find the resources they need. Clemson University has resources on every front that support students in every dimension of their lives. 

Below is a list of resources to include in your Canvas course site. In addition to placing these in the syllabus, create a page with brief descriptions of these resources and a link to the web pages where they can get the help they need. Slot this page into a Start Here module in your Canvas site so learners can quickly find the help they need.

The Faculty Resource Center page, resources to share with your students, is a fantastic place to check out after reviewing the types of resources you should consider having for your learners.

Academic Success

  • Library Resources – In your Canvas site, be sure to have the Library Resources tab visible on the course navigation site. Your students will be able to access a chat box with a librarian, look up resources such as texts, style guides, and much more!
  • Accommodations – Student Accessibility Services operates under the Academic Success Center.
  • Tutoring – The Academic Success Center offers free tutoring for nearly 100 courses. Be sure to link to the Academic Success Center tutoring services and highlight that tutoring is a free service.
  • Testing – The University Testing and Education Center provides all testing needs for learners who require accommodations.

Student Life
