If you haven’t already, please take our short survey to let us know what concerns you have about the change to distance learning.

Be Prepared

Not gonna lie, Monday is going to have a moment or three of frustration. The first day of school normally has little bit of stress and anxiety – and things are definitely not normal right now.

Our faculty spent this week preparing their syllabus and familiarizing themselves with all the cool bells and whistles our online teaching programs feature so that they can be prepared to provide you with the best learning experience possible under these unprecedented circumstances.

If you haven’t done so, take a moment before classes start and check out Zoom, Panopto and Blackboard to prepare yourself with these learning environments- you will thank yourself later!

Professor Steve Saunders has also created an easy step-by-step video to show you how to use Zoom– check it out!
