e-Learning Support

The e-Teaching and Learning service(abbreviated e-TL) is an online support system created for cooperative online work for courses given at SNU. e-TL includes an 'Online Classroom' application, where you can directly communicate with the instructor and other classmates, asking questions, posting assignments or other information, sometimes even having a realtime chat with group members. Notices and assignment information may be posted by the lecturer, which you will be told to check. Note that although e-TL classrooms are automatically generated for each course, some lecturers may choose not to use this online classroom at all. On the other hand, other lecturers may look for active online participation. If you would like to learn more about the service, an e-Learning guidebook is also offered on the site.
