Remote Teaching Support

Below is an updated schedule of training sessions for the Week of April 6 – April 10. I’ve added two sections focused on preventing unauthorized guests from joining or disrupting your Zoom sessions.  This is a fluid list, with items added as needed or discovered.

If you have specific needs please email me and I'll see what I can put together and schedule. Also, remember to use our Call List.  for additional support options from your colleagues who are experienced in Zoom and Canvas.

One of the best links for overall faculty support, including recordings of this past weeks Zoom Webinar by Dr. Michelle Pacansky-Brock, is the CVC-OEI Resources web page. Click on CVC-OEI On Demand Webinars to watch that, and a number of other training videos for Canvas and Zoom. (**One Note** Our Canvas instance of ConferZoom is called ConferNow in your Canvas shells.)

Have a great week!
