Online Instruction

Converting a face-to-face course to online mode in an emergency situation can be challenging for faculty and students alike. Careful planning, continuous communication, and community support and collaboration are the keys to managing this situation. Clear and frequent communication between faculty and their students is essential. Flexibility with options and deadlines and providing support to students as needed can reduce students' anxiety and enable a successful transition.
