Snow day resources available for optional remote classes

With potential snow days ahead, Information Systems has resources available to help faculty deliver content to students online, synchronously or asynchronously from home. All that is needed is a computer or mobile device and an internet connection. Faculty can deliver slides, videos, spreadsheets, images, or web pages and narrate using messaging, voice, or a webcam. Learners can participate by offering discussion and comments via messaging, voice, or webcam as well.

For more on how to run a dynamic, interactive, virtual class using VoiceThread, Show and Share, or WebEx, visit the faculty snow day resources page at go.wfu.edu/snowdaytech.
