Online Technology Support

When planning to teach in alternative modalities (e.g. blended, hybrid, remote, online, etc.), faculty and instructors should work 2-3 months in advance to begin building course content.  Most ideally, this can be done through the Canvas Learning Management System.  Class sessions can also be facilitated through Microsoft 365 and Zoom video conferencing. Keep in mind that not every option will work for every teaching environment and some experiential learning courses, such as labs and clinics, may not easily be accommodated.

All faculty and instructors need to consider the following training options for alternative instruction, and communicate effectively and in a timely nature to their students:

Additional training videos are available to aid faculty and instructors in Canvas usage.

Video Conferencing

Faculty and instructors may also host a class session remotely through Zoom video conferencing.  To schedule a session, contact The Center for Academic Innovation and Transformation at  24 business hour notification requested.  Once requested, faculty and instructors will be provided connection information detailing how to join a meeting.  Faculty should share this information with students at least 24 hours in advance for  adequate preparation for remote class session.  Additional training videos and tutorials are found here.

If you do not regularly teach alternative (online and/or hybrid and blended methods), take time to review your current curriculum and identify what content, student learning outcomes and assessment types would be best suited online.  The Center for Academic Innovation and Transformation will be happy to make recommendations and assist in moving essential course functions to a remote access format.  Contact The Center for Academic Innovation and Transformation at to schedule a one-on-one discussion.
