Academic Continuity and Remote Teaching - Leveraging Technology

Between winter storms, pandemics, or other critical situations, GVSU's campus locations can close. Thankfully, we have many digital learning solutions to help keep your students on track.  See the GVSU policy website for information on cancellation/closure and remote instruction. 

To continue classroom instruction during remote teaching, we encourage faculty to utilize Blackboard, Panopto, and Respondus (when appropriate).

In addition to using Blackboard, GVSU provides access to Panopto video to record and share class lectures and information with students.  Faculty can also use Zoom to host virtual office hours or a synchronous class meeting. 

  • Panopto Video – Record or narrate a PowerPoint lecture and create engaging video content or instructional videos that can be posted on Blackboard.  
  • Zoom - Zoom meetings can quickly be scheduled and linked in Blackboard to host virtual office hours or allow students to attend a live class meeting.
