A variety of circumstances might necessitate the need to temporarily move courses online with minimal notice for academic continuity (a campus closure due to matters of natural and man-made hazards; public health; occupational and environmental safety as well as security; or an instructor’s absence, etc). The academic continuity page will provide instructional resources and information for rapid remote deployment and engagement. It will also provide faculty with resources and guides designed to minimize disruption to campus-based courses.
As a general rule, all active courses should have a corresponding Blackboard shell even if the course is scheduled to meet on campus. In addition, all faculty and students should have access to Blackboard using the college’s SSO credentials. This foundation facilitates a college’s ability to transition an on campus class into remote delivery.
