Fall Readiness Survey

If you are teaching this Fall you will have received a short survey focused on online teaching readiness. Here is the link in case you missed it. Your responses will help us to prepare resources and training to better equip our teaching community for the Fall. If possible, we ask that you complete the survey by Wednesday, July 15th (tomorrow!).

Resource for Students

Rotman Digital has created a resource for students that will prepare them to learn online this Fall. It focuses not only on the technology side of Quercus, BB Collaborate, and our other tools, but also on ways to prepare themselves to succeed online more generally. Take a peek here.
