Introduction to eChalk
Chrissonna A. Flint
Georgia Southern University
This lesson was designed to teach learners how to utilize eChalk. My objective is to teach the
learners how to log in to eChalk, set up a profile, create a class page, and edit a class page. Please
note a few of the learners created an eChalk page a while ago. However, they have forgotten
how to edit their class page. Therefore, this lesson will serve as a refresher for them.
