Help For Students with Online Courses

 

Dear Students, 

When classes resume on March 30, the Department of Biology will use an online format for all courses. We are available to assist you and answer all questions that you might have related to your courses or any other concerns.

As you have already read in the Provost’s email, now more than ever it is critical that you stay in touch with your professors with any questions you might have and also check your email regularly. 

In addition to the current support from the University, we, as your Department, would like to expand the assistance and offer help that you might need.

How to Reach Us

If you are starting your first online course using Canvas, get up and running in under 30 minutes with the following overview videos. You will learn how to use Canvas, set your notification preferences, use the Canvas Student app, navigate the dashboard, and access and submit assignments. In addition, some of your instructors may be using Zoom to conduct online meetings for classes. The link for learning how to use Zoom is found below.
