A Student Orientation to FerrisConnect
FerrisConnect is Ferris State University's online learning management system. Every FerrisConnect course is unique. For example, your instructor may be using FerrisConnect to supplement a course taught in a regular classroom environment and may only add a couple of key tools to FerrisConnect. Alternatively, your course may be taught entirely online, or in a blended format, using a variety of tools available within the FerrisConnect learning management system. This orientation is provided to familiarize students with common tools and navigation.
