The main class website is on the InsideBC server. Go to the InsideBC server and select the appropriate class link for the current semester in the "My Courses" tab. Only enrolled students will have access to the class website. If InsideBC is down, use: https://kccd.instructure.com and sign-in with your campus username/password. The homework is done on the Sapling Learning system --- a separate website that you must purchase access to. The Sapling homework must be done on a regular computer with Flash enabled and turned on---it is not mobile-friendly. There are a lot of computers in the Library Commons.
