Below are answers to some commonly asked questions about flexible teaching and the template sites.

Template Site

Do I have to use the template site? No. However, we do highly recommend that you review the Course Facilitation and Engagement Guidelines and adhere to those guidelines as much as possible. If you would like to have the template site deleted so you can create sites yourself, please complete this form, and we will remove them.

How can I merge two template rosters/sites together? Fill out this form, and we will merge rosters together into a single site for you.

What do all the buttons in the Lessons tool do? This video walks through all the buttons you might use in the Lessons tool in the template site.

Can I see an example of the template site? Sure! Follow these step to join an example of a template site in Isidore.

Scheduling

Do I have to use 11:55 PM as the due times? Do I have to use Sundays at my due dates? No. What matters most is establishing a consistent schedule throughout the semester. Choose dates and times that make most sense for YOU and for your classes. We recommend no more than 2 due dates per week, and keep those dates and times consistent as much as possible. You may want to schedule due dates on days when you know you can be available to answer last minute questions.

How should I handle holidays? Try to avoid putting due dates on holidays, but remember that if you have given students plenty of time to complete the assignments, there shouldn’t be a need to change your schedule just because there are holidays.

Do I have to break my course down on a week-by-week basis? We do recommend using the week-by-week template, but if you break down your content in chunks of 2 weeks, that’s fine, too. Just be consistent and clear with your due dates. Here’s a video that shows you how to adjust the template into 2 week chunks.

Where do I need to add dates? It looks like there’s a lot of spots for dates. There are 3 spots where you will need to add dates throughout the template site. Here’s a 2 minute video demonstrating where the dates need to be entered.



Video

What's the best way to create lecture videos? Choose whatever software you are most familiar with, either Snagit or Zoom. Both of these programs let you record yourself, your mic, and your screen.



Course Delivery

How can I tell what technology is in my classroom? The Classroom Technology team in UDit will be publishing a list of classrooms and the technology within each soon.

Can I visit my classroom and try things out? On August 5th, you should be able to swipe into your classrooms. Please note that the technology might not be completely set up at this point.

How will I know which students are going to be face-to-face and which will be remote? In mid-August, you will be able to see this information in the Roster tool in Isidore for each student.
