Fall 2020 Classroom Technology

Classroom technology will be available to capture teaching in on-campus courses to support students participating virtually, and to record teaching for those participating asynchronously. Many classrooms will be equipped with a camera and microphone to support blended learning as synchronous or asynchronous. Some classrooms may include a document camera. Faculty members should continue to use Zoom, Blackboard Collaborate Ultra, or Mediasite to record their classes. All faculty must use Blackboard as the learning management system to house content. Graduate students and Digital Faculty Fellows will be available to assist as needed.
