Where can I access the Canvas Remote Teaching Template? How do I migrate the template into my Canvas Course? Will the template disrupt any pre-existing Canvas course materials?
The Canvas Remote Teaching Template is available here: https://oregonstate.instructure.com/courses/1792606. While in your Spring term Canvas course, click on the "Import from Commons" button. Next, you'll need to enter the Commons (you'll receive a prompt to verify your email). Next search for Oregon State University Remote Teaching Canvas Template. Click on it. Select to "Import to Course." You can then select the course you want to add the template info into. It takes a few minutes, but the template modules will be added to the bottom of your existing course content (your pre-existing content will not be deleted).


Do I have to use Zoom for all of my Spring Term teaching?

You have the option to use Zoom as much or as little as you deem appropriate for your class. In order for you to fully answer this question, you will want to consider the type of course you are teaching (intro-level lecture course, research seminar, WIC course, colloquium, etc.), your course objectives, and your students’ access to a reliable internet connection. The Remote Teaching Peer Support Team can help you work through your options and weigh the potential advantages, drawbacks, and considerations when using Zoom.


What if I have previously developed an Ecampus version of my Spring term class?

You may utilize the same materials for your on-campus course. Faculty Support can help with the migration: EcampusFacultySupport@oregonstate.edu. Please be aware, though, that some students may not have a computer or unlimited internet access. Students who signed up for on-campus classes in the Spring did not do so with the expectation that they would need to stream media. Be prepared to make other arrangements for such students.
