Whether you're taking an online course by choice or to finish your degree in the middle of a global pandemic, we're here to help. Learning online can take some getting used to, which is why the Centre for Academic Excellence has compiled a list of links, tip sheets, and other resources to help you navigate the digital classroom experience.

What's in the Library?
Libraries aren't just for books anymore! The Tyndale Library is filled with online resources. Search our entire collection using the WordCat search engine, or look for journal articles on a specific topic using our Periodical Databases (just make sure they're Peer Reviewed!). Our Research Guides provide lots of information about library services, and if you're left with questions, visit our LibAnswers FAQ or contact the library directly.
Other Tyndale Supports
