Getting ready to teach online this spring? (Classes begin Monday, 2/5.) This checklist will help you prepare.

Do you have our app?

Online Education has developed Classes, an updated app for students and faculty, where they can check all things Academy-related. As of January 2018, the Classes app now includes the shuttle schedule previously found on the Student/Campus app, along with course information, online classrooms and student grades. Download the app for iOS or Android today — and tell your students about it!
