Your instructors will reach out to you directly about how they plan on teaching your classes. Check your university email or WebCampus for an official communication from your professors. If for some reason you have not heard from your instructor by now, be proactive and reach out to them. Be sure to turn your email WebCampus notifications on.
Your instructors will use a combination of online learning methods (WebCampus, WebEx, Lecture Capture, and Google applications) to teach classes, hold discussions, and assign course projects remotely. Be flexible, and make polite suggestions if you think something is not working well for the class. To help you get started, view the Lecture Capture and Webex student guides.
Office hours will happen differently. Some faculty may conduct virtual office hours, while other faculty may host office hours over the phone. If your instructor does not mention how office hours will work for the coming weeks, be sure to ask.
Share your challenges early. Whether your challenges are with technology or a new way of learning, let someone know early. Your instructors, the IT Help Desk, and a host of campus services are there to assist you. Students registered with the Disability Resource Center should contact them for assistance during this transition.
Be prepared to use these tools to connect with your professors and other students.
Practicing good security habits is key to protecting you and the university from cyber attacks. As a good digital citizen, you can prevent data breaches and cybercrime by following Smart Computing guidelines for phishing, social engineering, and other hacking attempts. Installing antivirus and updating software and applications are essential.
You can reach out to the IT Help Desk for technical assistance on these remote services.
