Teaching Remotely

This page will be updated regularly.
See general information on the University’s COVID-19 response.

For Spring Quarter 2020, which starts on April 6, the University will be providing course instruction remotely. Please use the resources on this and accompanying pages to learn how to set up and run online courses.

Please note that materials and information will be updated regularly; refer back to this page or reach out to contacts provided below.


Canvas and Zoom are the core systems that are available for remote teaching. While many people teaching in our community have used these tools, there are others who have not and need training. Please create your Canvas Course, if you haven’t already. Zoom accounts will be set up for instructors and, for Spring of 2020, information will be emailed in the week of March 16.

As the University temporarily transitions to a remote teaching and learning environment, the Spring Quarter 2020 Recording Policy provides guidance for instructors and students about the recording of course sessions. Please see the full recording policy here and please contact us with any questions.


There will be virtual and in person training sessions for instructors. You may register for training online, and more sections will be added as the training schedule is finalized. Guidelines for Canvas and Zoom are here:
