Remote Teaching resources

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, APU is pivoting to a temporary instructional modality known as remote learning (also called remote-hybrid) for fall 2020. Remote classes strive to recreate the in-person classroom experience in a virtual environment with a mix of synchronous (real-time video conference meetings) and asynchronous (self-paced learning activities in Canvas) elements to maximize student engagement and faculty interaction. Remote classes have an attendance requirement. No modality change approval is needed for remote classes.

The Office of Innovative Teaching and Technology has created the following resources to help instructors design and develop their courses to be remote-ready.taught remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please refer to the APU Coronavirus (COVID-19) website for the latest information and guidelines.
