Keeping course continuity in the event of prolonged campus closure

- Contact the students using the Course Announcements forum in Moodle.
- Be prepared to upload assignments and lecture documents to Moodle.
COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR STUDENTS

- Don’t wait until you have all the details. Keeping your students up-to-date and engaged will help build continuity in your teaching.
Use the Moodle Announcements Forum, which automatically emails your entire course.
SET REALISTIC GOALS
- Is your timeline still realistic? What due dates need to be adjusted?
- What needs to be updated or changed in terms of types of assignments or tools you are using?
- Make sure your learning outcomes are achievable.
- Flexibility is key!
DELIVER YOUR CONTENT

- What will work best for you and your students?
- Options include written lectures, video lectures, discussion groups, the textbook, and links to outside sources.
The best approach is often a mix of content types!
