A JOURNEY, NOT A DESTINATION
The Office of Academic Technology (OAT) is promoting a new Digital Transformation Initiative (DTI). DTI is an intentional and coordinated series of seminars, workshops, and events to integrate the systemic use of technology for teaching, learning, and research.
* We are committed to assisting Faculty transition to Canvas to better serve students in an all-inclusive online learning environment.
OAT Pivot Tips
With the abrupt pivot back to remote learning, the following tips may be helpful.
1. Communicate your teaching plans
Use the PeopleSoft roster email tool first to email your class about what they can expect. Send subsequent communications using the Canvas Inbox tool or create an Announcement in each course. Canvas will relay both of those to the students via a notification, but students may have set up their Canvas notifications to delay receiving them.
2. Use Canvas' Zoom tool to schedule meetings
Use the Zoom tool in each Canvas course to schedule your course meetings. Both you and your students will use that tool to join the meeting - no need to send out a link separately.
3. Find Zoom recordings under Panopto Recordings
Recordings of course Zoom meetings will be automatically available under the Panopto Recordings link in each course a couple of hours after the meeting is over.
