Don’t Let the Weather Disrupt Your Course!

Unexpected events can disrupt precious class time. With a little preparation, you can keep the continuity of learning in your courses:

  • Post course content in your Blackboard Learn courses so students can access it anywhere, anytime
  • Set up quizzes, tests, assessments, and assignments in your Blackboard Learn courses so students can access them anywhere
  • Secure your Blackboard Learn test delivery using Respondus Lockdown Browser
  • Facilitate student discussions through various options in your Blackboard learn courses such as: discussion forums and VoiceThread. Questions that prompt students to apply concepts based on their experiences or examples they research foster unique posts and higher follow-up engagement in the discussion.
  • Create short content videos to deliver content whether it’s narrating and annotating slides or problem solving using Panopto or the Lightboard.
  • Leverage LinkedIn Learning on-demand videos to supplement your course content. Wentworth sponsors University-wide access, login using your Wentworth email and password.
  • Hold a virtual class, office hours, or group problem solving sessions using Zoom
