Posting Course Materials Online
You will likely need to provide additional and/or different course materials to support transitioning from a face-to-face to an online course. Implement your communication plan to notify student when new material is posted.
Ensure that course materials are mobile-friendly and accessible. Some students may not have access to a computer at home and will rely on mobile device. PDFs are easily viewed on mobile devices and keep file sizes small. Avoid videos and files that require a lot of bandwidth. Not all students will have access to wifi or home networks and may rely on cellular data.
