This is a brief overview of decisions and preparations for instructors who need to teach a class session or two remotely, when circumstances like inclement weather make it difficult to get to campus. To manage cognitive load and keep the focus on student learning, this guide focuses on options that involve potentially more familiar and less demanding technologies.
Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance, and contact your department for questions about what is expected of instructors when classes are cancelled.
