In 2012, Connect became the collaborative learning environment for Trevecca Nazarene University's distance learning program, blended courses, and face-to-face course support. Connect is based on the open-source Sakai CLE. Student enrollment in a TNU course that uses Connect requires the student to successfully complete GEN 0000 Introduction to Online Learning. GEN 0000 is a one-week online orientation that provides an introduction to features of Connect and basic skills to navigate and locate resources within the Connect environment.
