INTERNET CONNECTIVITY

And just like that, connecting is everything. You will need broadband internet service to teach remotely. Check your internet speed by visiting Google.com, search internet speed test, then click Run Test.

If you are in the ‘low’ zone, try to tether your computer to your smartphone and/or check out this FCC page on COVID19-specific vendor options for low/no cost (https://www.fcc.gov/keep-americans-connected).

Communicate

Communicate early and often. Let students know about changes or possible disruptions as early as possible. Early and frequent communication can ease student anxiety, and save you dealing with individual questions.

Make sure you have a presence in Harvey for every course taught. Harvey (Blackboard), Panopto, Collaborate, proctoring services – need help? The Faculty Resource Center (FRC) is ready and waiting.
