Accessing Your Course

You may access your course from home, work, a College campus or from any other location that has Internet access.

Note: Classes for Winter 2017 officially begin on January 3, 2017.
You will not be able to access your course(s) prior to this date.

Accessing your course(s) is a simple, two-step process.


Step 1: Activate your CNA Account using Webmail

Setting up your CNA webmail is the first step in activating your account and must be completed prior to course login.

You will be expected to use this secure email account for all correspondence with the Office of Distributed Learning. Important information regarding scholarships and awards, exams, etc. will also be sent to this account. Once set up, your address will be in the format of Firstname.Lastname##@ed.cna.nl.ca. (where ## is the last two digits of the student number). Be sure to check your webmail on a regular basis. A link is provided on the main menu bar of the DL website as well as on the My Home page.

Click Webmail located at the top of the Distributed Learning website, enter the following:

 

Username:

CNA Email
Example: Name.Lastname##@ed.cna.nl.ca
You will need to enter your NEW student email which contains the last two digits of your student number.

 

Password:

Date of Birth in day-Month-year format
Example: 12-Apr-1984 or 3-Jan-1971
Be sure to include hyphens and to capitalize the month as shown.

Note: The format above is the default format for new students. If you are a returning student, you may continue to use your previous password until it expires. (For security reasons, passwords expire every 120 days.)

When prompted, change your password based on the minimum requirements listed below:

  • Must be at least eight characters in length
  • Must contain at least one uppercase character and one number
  • Must not contain your name, student # or special characters
    (' ~ ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ + - = { } | [ ] \ : " ; ' < > ? , . /)

Step 2: Log into your Online Course(s)

Once you have successfully activated your account, you can then proceed to log into your online course(s) using your Student # and Password created in Step 1. Click Course Login located at the top of the Distributed Learning website.
