In Case of an emergency, your professor will likely move your course (more) onto the web, and might change the course procedure and syllabus. Here's some ways you can prepare for this:
- Review the D2L Self-Paced Training Set for students. If you haven't already, this will show you how to use D2L to watch for and access course content, hand in assignments, participate in message board discussions, and even perhaps take a quiz or exam.
- Learn to use, or Review Google Drive. This can be an excellent space to collaborate with fellow students. Your professor may elect to use Google Drive in your class, too.
- If your classes move online, you may need to practice more self-organization. Google Calendar is a big help with this.
- Your professor may use Google Hangouts Meet for virtual classes or office hours on the web. But you can just as easily use it to meet with fellow students.
- You may have used Google Docs or Apple Pages to create written assignment submissions you then handed in on paper. But your professor may ask you to hand these assignment submissions in through D2L dropboxes. Here's how to convert your Google Docs or .pages files to .docx format.
