5 Tips to Decrease Frustration While Moving Online
You can do this; we are here for you. Be authentic and transparent with your students as you try new things. Stay healthy, be gentle with yourself and reach out for the help you need.

  1. Plan ahead. 
    Use this preparation checklist to make your remote instruction plan.

  2. Get professional support early
    DIT and TLTC are providing expanded support.

  3. Avoid synchronous (or live) sessions
    Click here to understand why.

  4. Keep video recordings short
    Videos that are longer than 15 minutes are problematic technically and pedagogically.

  5. Review your assessment plan.
    View this page for strategies to adjust or adapt your assessments. For identity verification and proctoring, Honorlock has been integrated with ELMS-CANVAS. A webcam is required.
