NTPD students will access their didactic courses in eCollege on the first day of class. eCollege will create a home page for each NTPD student, who has created a profile in eCollege. Links to each registered course, as well as the free orientation course, will appear on each NTPD student’s home page. The home page is accessible through the eCollege login page. Students will enter their student ID (no hyphens) and the password used when creating their eCollege profile. Remember, the password is case-sensitive.
To go to a specific course, just click on its title. Courses do not open until 12 AM, Mountain Time, on the first day of class, so students may receive an error message if accessing a course prior to the first day of class.
The didactic courses are set up in, generally, week-long “units.” Units usually open up at 12 AM, Mountain Time, according to the individual course schedules, and assignments are due at the end of the unit. The work for each unit can be accomplished at any time during the scheduled unit dates. We recommend students begin unit work, or at least review what will be required for each unit, early in the week to manage schedules appropriately.
