Wow, it’s been a crazy few weeks, with a lot of changes. How do we keep up? I am hoping to help you, with links to some of the sites that have the changing/updated information. I have also added other links that might be interesting to you right now. You can click on the link, or the picture, to take you to the site (all links will open in a new tab).
Here is the site with all the University of Alaska coronavirus information which include any updates.
Here is the UA Virtual Campus site that gives you technology tools that make it possible to work, study and teach when you can’t get to campus.
This next link is to the world-o-meter, which updates coronvirus information from around the world a few times per hour.
The following is from the UAS CELT website. This gives you information about Zoom, and has a section on Zoombombing, with tips for you.
As you move forward with remote teaching, you may be looking for ways to engage your students, and give them the ability to interact with you and other students. VoiceThread is an asynchronous tool that allows for class interaction, and is now part of Blackboard, so VoiceThread assignments will go right into the gradebook!! Here is a link to give you infomation about VoiceThread.
If you are looking for Professional Development or webinars to teach some new skills or technology, look at the UAS CELT calendar.
If you need HR help, look to their new tool SPOKE. You will just need to sign in using your single sign on, and then ask your question. It will be quickly routed to the HR representative who can answer you and give you the information you are looking for.
