Guide to Online Teaching

USG Quick Guide to Online Teaching is designed to help faculty who have a short amount of time for setting up and preparing to facilitate an online course for a few quarantined students or the whole class. The course provides three potential solutions to help faculty, including those who have little or no experience with the D2L/Brightspace Learning Management System. The "Ask an Instructional Designer" discussion area within the course will be monitored daily (including weekends) to answer any questions faculty have about the course or online learning.

The course is hosted on Augusta University’s Learning Management System/D2L and can be accessed directly at USG Guide to Online Teaching [https://lms.augusta.edu/d2l/home/348057]. Faculty will be prompted to log in using their AU credentials.

Web Accessibility and Usability is an introductory level workshop on creating ADA compliant instructional materials. Faculty will be introduced to principles of online course usability that positively impact the learner experience. The "Ask an Instructional Designer" Discussion area within the course will be monitored daily (including weekends) to address any questions faculty have about accessibility and usability. 

The course is hosted on Augusta University’s Learning Management System/D2L and can be accessed directly at Web Accessibility and Usability. Faculty will be prompted to log in using their AU network credentials.

 Both courses open on Monday, March 16, 2020 and will be available indefinitely. The daily monitoring of the “Ask an Instructional Designer” Discussion area is only guaranteed through Monday, March 30, 2020.
