eLearning on campus
Information and resources for students enrolled in eLearning courses at Mount Royal.
MyMRU is the Mount Royal online portal and it provides secure online resources for on-campus and distance students, faculty and staff. These resources include:
- course registration
- student schedules
- student account information
- online fee payment
- class lists, wait lists
- final grade entry (faculty)
To learn more about accessing and using MyMRU, see the START (Student Technology and Resource Tutors) tutorials.
Blackboard is a special area of MyMRU where you will find information specific to each of your classes. In technology enhanced and blended delivery courses, this may include online resources, modules and activities. In fully online courses, Blackboard is the primary way you will access course resources, content and activities, as well as communicate with your classmates and instructor.
