The SmarterMeasure assessment can help you determine whether you have the technical skills to take a Distance Learning course. SmarterMeasure is a web-based tool which assesses your level of readiness for enrolling in distance education courses. It assesses important attributes in online learning, such as self-motivation, time-management skills, self-discipline, persistence, availability of time, and ability to use a laptop, printer, software, and the Internet.

The DL technical support staff is here to assist you with any technical difficulties you may have. Our contact information is on the sidebar of each page, and our office hours are listed on the DL home page. Our office is closed during all observed Blinn holidays. Please visit the Blinn College calendar for these holiday postings.

If you have technical difficulties with a course or with eCampus, you may call our office or set up an appointment with one of our technical support specialists.

  1. Do not use more than one browser at a time when logged into eCampus. More than one instance of eCampus can cause the system to be confused and not save your answers or submit your documents.

  2. If you are typing a long response into a drop box or discussion forum, use a word processing program to write it first. Then copy and paste the response into the drop box or forum.

  3. Use a supported browser. Do not use an unsupported browser, even if you have never had any problems before.

  4. If you do have technical problems, contact your instructor immediately. Then contact Distance Learning. Contacting your instructor immediately will put a time/date stamp on the technical issue so your instructor knows when the problem occurred.

  5. If your instructor allows you to take your exams online from locations other than Blinn Learning Centers, please read through the Online Exam Recommendations for Students document.

  6. Always try another internet browser if you are experiencing technical problems.

  7. For password problems, try to reset your password in Password Manager. Also, make sure you set up your security questions to avoid future issues.
