August 2020: OCI – Professional Development and Training

Training for Fall 2020
Canvas and Zoom Training is ongoing. Please visit the CUSPS Training registration page to learn more. We strongly recommend that all faculty attend training in preparation for fall so that they will have the latest and greatest information about various security protocols and functionality in both Canvas and Zoom. Faculty will receive access to their Zoom Pro account upon completion of Zoom training.

Faculty and teaching assistants have also been enrolled in Shifting Online: A Self-Paced Guide to Practical Strategies — a self-paced course that contains resources, best practices, and tips & tricks for successful remote instruction. Instructors can navigate through this course site on their own time and refer back to key information during the semester. If you cannot access the course, please contact Phoebe Ballard, Executive Director of Online Learning Operations, at pb2696@columbia.edu.

During the month of September, the Online Support team is offering “Online Student Technology Training” every Friday at 12 noon, ET. These targeted one-hour sessions cover basic educational technologies used in online courses and will enable students to ask questions regarding specific tools and/or troubleshoot technical issues with expert help from an Online Support team member.  

Students may register for this training at any time.
