Remote Learning Resources from the Digital Learning Center

If they haven’t already, faculty will be directly reaching out to you in the coming days to indicate how they will facilitate a given course. As is true on campus in our physical classrooms, the approaches and tools used will vary. In anticipation, we’ve created a technology support hub of sorts for you, depending upon the needs for your various classes, some resources may be more relevant than others. Please reference the following guide: Remote Learning Resources for Students. Included are instructions for getting started with Zoom, connecting to wifi at other colleges that might be closer, and tips on Canvas tools and features that faculty may utilize in the coming weeks. For example, you might want to check your Canvas notification settings to insure that you are set for receiving messaging in a timely manner.

If your faculty members have communicated that you will be connecting via Zoom, you are encouraged to download the software or app on your devices in order to prepare. Instructions for doing so are located in the guide Preparing for Your First Zoom Meeting.
