Emergency Preparation: Teaching Options

Center for Teaching & Learning Excellence

Unexpected emergencies such as hurricanes certainly present challenges to the regular flow of teaching and learning.  Of course, our first priority is the safety of you and your students.  Once that is established, whether you are waiting days for a hurricane to pass, or for a location to reopen, you may be worried about catching up on the content, activities, and assignments for your classes.  You do have options to provide educational support and content.  We suggest you consider two alternatives to seat time in a classroom. 

Option A: Record a class session in Blackboard Collaborate via your D2L course offering

Option B: Create Discussions or Activities in your D2L Course
