  5. The quality of the bandwidth is important, so be sure to use a reliable internet connection (such as home or Library).  It is our experience that students connecting at public places such as Starbucks have not been successful
  6. Students not on the Blacksburg Campus should use the COE proctoring link for all proctoring needs Engineering CGEP Proctoring Site (not the IDDL site.)

Homework Process

  1. Scholar/Canvas preferred method for homework distribution and returning
  2. Scholar/Canvas can be set up to deliver homework to students at a certain time
  3. Students will need to fill out homework, scan and upload to Scholar/Canvas

Exam Procedure

  1. Exams should be distributed and received via Scholar/Canvas if possible
  2. If exams are sent electronically to Blacksburg or Northern Virginia for duplicating they need to be sent at least a week in advance so they are sent early enough for the site coordinator to have time to copy them.
  3. Please notify Maureen Fallon in Digital Media Services ( of what day you will be giving your exam and if you will be using your assigned classroom.
  4. Final exam grades for non-VT students cannot be e-mailed due to FERPA regulations at VT; they must be uploaded to secure Scholar/Canvas site. This scenario does not happen often and our office will work with you to create a site.

Textbook Information:

Before the beginning of the semester, you will be contacted by the CGEP administrator to confirm textbooks.
