Instructing when class is cancelled: CPI can help
Published on February 05 2014
Though course lectures, seminars, and office hours may be cancelled or made problematic due to occurrences of inclement weather or flu pandemic, academic instruction can often continue in lieu of brick-and-mortar meeting places using instructional technologies. The Centre for Pedagogical Innovation (CPI) guides academic instruction in many forms; we are pleased to offer support to educators intending to instruct or supplement instruction using tools within Isaak-Sakai or other Brock-supported platforms such as Etherpad, Kumu, or Elluminate.
Specific tips when class has been cancelled:
- Have students submit work through Isaak-Sakai’s Dropbox or the Assignments tool
- Conduct office hours privately using the Isaak-Sakai’s Messages tool or openly using the Chat Room tool.
- Facilitate collaborative work using Isaak-Sakai’s Forums tool, Etherpad, or a Kumu-hosted wiki
