eLearn is Jackson State’s platform that will contain all of your course shells, whether your class is in-person, online, or FLEX. You will have access to all of your course shells on the first day of classes. Within each shell, this is where you will have access to course materials such as your syllabus and upcoming assignments.

When you access your courses on the first day of classes, if a course shell is missing, please do the following:

First, log into jWeb to ensure you are still enrolled in classes. Click the Student One-Stop link and then the View My Schedule button. Select the appropriate term from the drop-down menu and click submit. If you do not see any classes on your schedule you will need to reregister for classes.
