The three main teaching tools we are recommending are Canvas, Zoom, and TechSmith Relay.
We strongly encourage everyone to read these guides to gain basic familiarity and identify questions before attending a group session or seeking individual help on these.
Canvas help — List of getting started resources; links to other resources on remote teaching. Read the Canvas Setup Guide.
Zoom guide — Getting started/suggestions; remote teaching good practices, etc.
TechSmith Relay — Using TechSmith Relay to record and share videos for remote teaching.
Request Technology Training — Request training on these and other tools.
Our support team
DCAL, the Library, and ITC are collaborating to build support teams for every department and program at Dartmouth to help faculty transition to remote teaching. Here are the representative contacts for our department:
Dartmouth Teach Remote Website — Our main remote teaching resource, continually revised and expanded. New guides include:
Ideas for Remote Teaching in Mathematics Courses — Suggested plans for lectures, discussion, boardwork, group work, and office hours.
A Quick Guide to Preparing Homework for Graders in Canvas — How to get homework distributed, graded, and returned, all using Canvas. (Even if you are not using graders, this shows you how to batch download homework submissions and re-upload after marking them.)
Dartmouth Library Resources on Remote Teaching & Learning — Library support and services for teaching remotely. Beginning halfway down the page, there are detailed guides on electronic reserves, printed materials, research guides, and library instruction.
Main ITC Services Portal — Request help to support remote teaching and learning: request consultation from the Learning Design Team; training on core technologies; general tech support requests; equipment requests; add a Slack workspace for your course, and more.
Technical Equipment Request Form — Faculty equipment request for remote teaching/learning.
Request a Slack Workspace for your course — Also read the Faculty Guidebook for using Slack for your course.
