Items for Action

  1. All who are teaching online in the fall will need to have completed an appropriate training. You can find training from TIDES to support online learning success and further resources in the Online/Blended Course Planning Commons
    Seeking something more? Submit ideas to be included in these trainings by emailing tidesinstruct@cns.utexas.edu
  2. Begin preparing your Canvas presence for fall courses. Templates will be available in mid-July. In the meantime visit this page, which includes a schedule of workshops and information about one-on-one consultations.

General Resources

Accommodations for Instructors and for Students

Zoom and Panopto

Zoom Security 

  • Stay on top of Zoom updates and the need for multi-factor authentication.
  • Ensure you are using the utexas.zoom.us domain (https://utexas.zoom.us/) for your Zoom calls to take advantage of increased security measures. 
  • Do not publish your Zoom meeting links in public forums such as Twitter. Share your links through more secure means such as email, calendar invites, and closed groups.
  • Review the entire list of Zoom security features for both private and public events, including generating a unique meeting ID, requiring a password, muting video and audio of participants, and enabling waiting rooms. 
  • Anyone using free Zoom accounts (not Zoom at UT) will find Zoom made recent changes. The Waiting Room feature is enabled, and, on all personal meetings, additional password settings are required.

Fall Instruction

The University will make decisions in late June about how to mitigate various risks this fall. Planning for contingencies and developing a plan to deliver courses requires knowing which classes students are registering for. Students can find information about registration processes at Texas One Stop
