Orientation serves to help freshmen to make the switch from a school to a university learning environment. However, conventional face-to-face orientation is limited in what can be disseminated and how effectively students are inducted. A case is discussed in which freshmen experienced a blended approach to orientation. Reflecting on the process, teachers observed that this cohort of students was better prepared for subsequent university life. Furthermore, these students, who had already had considerable exposure to the Web environment, experienced little technical challenge.
