Happy First Day of Classes!
We are starting the fall semester early this year, and everything is already in full swing. Whether you’re teaching remotely, mask-to-mask on campus, or using a combination of the two in a Hy-Flex mode, we hope you are safe and healthy. Remember to check Keep Teaching for COVID-19 faculty resources.
Last week we held a 75-minute crash course on Teaching with Sakai Tools to Help Students Learn . The recording of that crash course is now available for you to view on your own time!
Are you a new instructor and need to create your course site? Do you want to administer online tests to assess student learning or collect student papers? Are you interested in streamlining the student learning experience by combining all of your course content in one place? If you said yes to any of these questions, we recommend watching the recording, which we’ve broken down by topic below!
