Teaching online in a summer session will be new to some of you and familiar to others. Even for the most seasoned faculty, the current situation presents new opportunities, such as ordering digital course materials.
IU eTexts are a contact-free delivery method that ensures students have access to course materials via Canvas on the first day of class. The initiative includes more than 35 publishers with discounts up to 90 percent off the list price.
Open educational resources are another no-cost option that can be delivered through IU eTexts. Contact your campus librarian for help finding suitable materials (some may already be available as library resources).
If you're scheduled to teach this summer, you may have noticed a new Canvas course template for teaching online. You don't have to use the template – but, if you think it might be useful to you, be sure to take in the recorded webinar (available as part of the Keep Teaching playlist) on customizing it for your course.
Help your students find answers to their technology questions. You can import Keep Teaching modules into your Canvas course to help share important instructions – from how to connect to Zoom class sessions to how to use IUanyWare for accessing software in the cloud.
IU’s teaching and learning centers and the Support Center are on hand to assist you with inclusive approaches, and the Help section of Keep Learning (the student corollary to Keep Teaching) highlights available resources.
