Passport – Getting Started Guide

Welcome to EMC Passport. Passport is a Learning Management System (LMS) that gives you access to all levels of your program.

In Passport, the instructor creates courses for each period they instruct, then invites students to the course so that they can be assigned student engagement activities.

Student engagement activities can be video-based assessments, interactive eBook activities, IPA or project-based activities, or any digital resource found in your program resources.

This guide will walk you through getting started with Passport, step-by-step.  The first step to take is setting up your courses. For each step you will read instructions and click a link to open a new tab for additional specific instruction on that topic. Use the check boxes to track your progress.
