Some of you may now be separated from your students - either with them at home and you at work, or will all at home. The issue for many is how to keep things going, keeping on track with their programs.
While I am fortunate (for now) to still be teaching in face-to-face situations, I have already run a mock online class for my university students, and both those and my elementary classes are preparing for the possibility of going online.
As a result, there is much concern and confusion about how to do this. Certainly this often means deciding on synchronous, asynchronous, or a blended learning situation, each of which have pluses and minuses. Leaving aside the speed and availability of Internet connections, I'd like to offer two possibilities for synchronous classes.
The first is Zoom and the second is Skype Meet Now. I have written about each of them in the attached documents that you can access using the links provided. I believe they are the simplest to use by yourselves as well as by the students compared to other more mainstream offerings.
I encourage you to explore them so you can keep things going.
Best wishes for your health and safety,
