Dealing with the unexpected inside the classroom is part of teaching, but what happens when the unexpected prevents everyone from even gathering? Certainly any number of things could force you to cancel class, but what can you do to help students continue to progress while they wait out the latest winter storm?
Don’t fear, the LTC is here!
Here are just a few of the tools you can use to enable learning from almost anywhere:
Every semester, all courses are automatically setup and created in Canvas. As an instructor, it’s up to you to Publish the course before the students are able to see it. Once the course is published, you are able to send out News Announcements, post Assignments, and start up Discussion Forums all with a few clicks. The best part is that Canvas Support is available 24/7/365 to help you get up and running!
With Webex Meetings, you have the ability to schedule and create a web based meeting where you can use both audio and video to communicate with your students. To make things even easier, this is also integrated directly into every Canvas course on campus. Click on the “Cisco Webex” link in your course to get started. All you and your students need to connect is an internet connected device.
If you are already using Webex Teams with your class, it’s a great tool to use for last minute and unexpected situations. Webex Teams allows for communication using an app that students can download onto their computer, mobile devices or access using the web browser. You can use teams to group message, share files and even schedule Webex Meetings right from the application.
The next time you find yourself in an unexpected situation that might impact your class, remember there are a number of great tools and resources out there. You can always reach out to the Learning Technology Center if you have any questions!
