Instruction can shift in a number of ways:
Send students an announcement or email (or both) to let them know the plan for instruction while the campus is closed.
Consider doing a quick check-in survey via Canvas that assesses students ability to access your coursework remotely. Questions might include:
Be mindful that some students may not have access at home for a variety of reasons. Be ready to provide some grace periods for assignments for students who do not have access to technology.
If you have technical questions or if you need assistance brainstorming ideas, contact the Center for Teaching & Online Learning personnel: Brady Fowler (email@example.com) or Kari Thierer (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will still be responding to emails in the event of any campus closure. There are also answers to many questions in the Canvas Instructor Guides and Canvas Video Guide.
Starting up with a new Learning Management System can be daunting. If you're transitioning from another LMS, you'll have questions about how to do things you already know; if you're new to online instruction, you need a quick path to get your course up and running. The State Board for Technical & Community colleges offers a fully-featured Canvas training, about 20 hours of facilitated asynchronous learning designed for faculty and staff who have never used the Canvas learning management system or who are just getting started using Canvas.
