Teaching online this fall? This checklist will help keep you on track.
(Classes began Thursday, 9/6. Fall Art Experience classes begin Saturday, October 6.)
IMPORTANT Our thoughts are with our students and their families impacted by Hurricane Florence. If you have students who are affected by the storm, please make every effort to reach out and support them.
Here are some guidelines:
If you live in an affected area yourself, please contact your department as soon as possible. Your director may need to make arrangements for a temporary substitute, if you are unable to teach your class.
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!
