Accessing “Connect”

Since Fall 2012, our Online and Hybrid courses have been housed in a new online learning environment called “Connect”, which can be accessed at:


For students who have previously logged in to WebCT Vista: You may continue to use the same CWL to login to Connect at the link shown above. Students will notice some differences and some similarities between WebCT Vista and Connect. Give yourself some time to explore your course site within the new Connect system.

For new students: We have produced a guide, “Accessing Connect“. Please follow the instructions in this guide to get your CWL Login Name and Password and access Connect.

Once you have logged in to Connect, your courses will appear as links to be followed. Tutorials are available at

The UBC IT Helpdesk is available to Carey students 24/7. However, you must state that you have a BASIC account, as most callers who are UBC students have a different type of account. And Myrna Sears, Carey’s Director of Distributed Learning may be able to assist you.

Note: A new feature of Connect is the option to receive your course email outside of the course site. To receive course email to an external account (such as your personal account or on your handheld device), find your name in the dark blue band at the top of the course page. Move right to the “head” icon. Click on it and it will take you to “My Places”; click on “Personal Information”, then click on “Edit Personal Information” and insert your external email address in the 7th field box down. Click “Submit”. [Other information may be added to your profile in the same way.]
