Ways to Move Your Class Online

There are circumstances that may prevent you from meeting face-to-face with your students. Consider these options for moving your class online.

Schedule live Zoom sessions to present class lectures at the same time your class is typically scheduled to occur.

Record the sessions and upload links to Canvas so students that can't attend the live sessions can watch them later.

Schedule office hours at a recurring date/time using Zoom.

  • Create a Zoom session at or use your Personal Meeting Room. Post a Canvas Announcement or send an email through the Canvas Inbox letting your students know when the session will occur and providing the link to the session.
  • Be sure you have a computer with a microphone and webcam (optional) available.
  • Students will be able to access session through a computer, a tablet, or a smartphone (app needed).



Use Canvas to deliver class asynchronously.
