iStart 101 for International Students
This online course, designed by Berkeley International Office, presents information to help international students be aware of essential resources and responsibilities at UC Berkeley.
Welcome to Bcourses!
The iStart 101 course is built on Berkeley's official campus learning management system (LMS) called "bCourses." Many of your classes at UC Berkeley will use bCourses as a tool; iStart 101 is your introduction to this tool and will help you become familiar with the features (Note: bCourses is built by a company called 'Canvas.' You will see references to Canvas for technical support and other reasons).
- Use bCourses on your mobile phone! Download the Canvas app to keep up with your courses while you are on the go.
- See the bCourses "Students Getting Started" page to learn more.
