Online Technologies for Instructional Continuity (COVID-19)

Emergency Online Instruction

If your ability to teach your face-to-face courses is restricted due to an emergency, Academic Technology at NMSU can help. Even if you’ve never taught online, learning the basics of online course delivery can help you keep your courses running during a campus closure. Academic Technology can also help you easily transition back to face-to-face after the emergency is over. Whether you’re new to Canvas or have some experience using learning technologies, the following resources will help you to quickly get up to speed.
