eCampus/CFD Support for Remote Instruction

Date: March 9, 2020

From: Deanna Fassett, Director, Center for Faculty Development

Greetings from your Center for Faculty Development

Like many of you, I am closely following updates regarding COVID-19, from SJSU, from San José Unified School District, from Santa Clara County, and beyond.  

As part of the Provost's Office, CFD and eCampus are working together to help support you during what may feel like a journey through uncharted terrain.  For those of you who would like additional information from our offices (above and beyond email), please follow us on Facebook and Twitter at:

At this time, I'd like to call your attention to the resources assembled by our friends at eCampus, including this readiness checklist that helps guide you to tools that can aid you in maintaining continuity for your students during an interruption in instruction. eCampus instructional designers are also offering a series of 20 minute remote teaching workshops to support you in creating lecture videos, moving your course files into Canvas, and using Zoom for instruction.

In addition, CFD's faculty computer lab is available for you to drop in (M-F, 8 am to 5 pm) if you need extra support with Canvas, Zoom, Camtasia or other tools.  eCampus and CFD are assembling a team of faculty consultants who can help provide additional one-on-one support, particularly for more discipline-specific questions--more information to come tomorrow.  As always, I remain available for individual consultation, in person or via Zoom.  Thank you for all you do for SJSU students and for each other.
