In situations that can cause interruption to normal instructional activities and schedules, we all have a responsibility to provide students with alternative means of access to course content, communication and assignments/assessments, while being flexible in enabling students to meet course requirements. The following resources and information provide a range of options available for responding to these challenges.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about implementing any of the recommended actions.
- Upload your syllabus and relevant course materials to Canvas.
- Hold synchronous online class meetings using Canvas Conferences.
- Record a lecture from your office or home using Kaltura and add the recording to your Canvas course.
- Narrate, upload to Canvas, and how students view a pptx.
- Determine how you will communicate your plan of action to students.
- Be prepared to answer student inquiries about participating remotely in the live face-to-face class or in the online delivery of the class for a specified period of time. Reassure the students that you are committed to working with them, but also set clear and reasonable expectations about their responsibilities.
- Hold synchronous online office hours using Canvas Conferences.
- Set up a Canvas Conference.
- If unable to connect to the number (863) 208-0022 when trying to use the dial-in feature to listen to a Canvas Conference on your phone, try the alternate number (855) 215-5935.
- Communicate with your students through your Canvas course:
Questions to discuss within your department
- What if I cannot facilitate the course? Are there colleagues who could be available to guest lecture for me, or assist with class delivery should I have to teach remotely?
- What if a significant proportion (20-40%) of the class is out for an extended period of time?
- How will I modify the grading process?
- How will I communicate this to students?
Ensure your course is “Continuation Ready” every semester. Be proactive by implementing the actions identified on this page.
- Contact your instructor if you have any question about any changes being made to the delivery of instruction.
- Prepare to join class meetings remotely or access recorded lecture material.
- Maintain regular communication with your Instructor.
