“Instructional continuity” is a term being used across higher education to describe efforts to help students continue their coursework in the midst of disruptions due to disaster, weather, or illness. The latter is on everyone’s minds right now, of course, but having plans in place is useful in California, where we have experienced college closures due to wildfires.
We’re here to help you get ready! In addition to our regular Canvas training, we are offering a Camp Canvas menu of training specifically designed to help face-to-face faculty use Canvas and Zoom for remote instruction. Please sign up in MyLearningPlan.
We've also developed two Canvas resource sites to provide support for online and remote instruction during a college closure: one for faculty and one for students.
|Instructional Continuity: FACULTY||Instructional Continuity: STUDENTS|
The sites offer logistical considerations for working remotely, Canvas and Zoom resources, and other support information. Visitors will be prompted to log into MySWC to access either site if they're not already logged into the system.
Welcome! This website's aim is to provide information and inspiration for instructors of online and hybrid courses at Southwestern College. What you find here will grow and change as online learning does, so suggestions and requests are always welcomed.
The resources here are focused on teaching online--everything from course design to making videos to accessibility.
