Make sure your syllabus and as much course content as possible are available to students via Canvas. Set expectations with students about how the course will proceed remotely.
Familiarize yourself with Emory's Tools and Technologies
Make sure that you are familiar with the tools available to continue teaching synchronously and asynchronously. This site provides an overview of many of these tools. If you need help understanding these tools, set up a one-on-one consultation, attend workshops, and watch tutorials now.
Begin practicing using these tools before your course continues in the remote teaching environment. Make sure that you have headphones with a microphone (the ones that came with your mobile phone will work, or you could order something like this) and a webcam (the built-in webcam on your laptop will suffice).

Follow the Lead of your Department
Departments and Programs may have specific models or approaches that they would like all courses to follow when teaching remotely. Relevant departments will instruct faculty about how to handle experiential components of courses, such as labs. The College and your department will issue relevant information addressing exams, if needed.
Communicate with Students Early and Often
Set expectations with your students about when and how you will be communicating (Emory email, Canvas, etc.). Please remind students to set their notifications to automatically receive Canvas announcements in their Emory email inbox.
