The University supports a variety of online tools that will help maintain academic continuity in your classes. The first and foremost method to maintain contact with your students, and continue your classes is the use of our Learning Management System BrightspaceWithin our LMS you can email students, upload files, record lectures, and even conduct virtual classes.

Below you will find a list of resources and best practices for utilizing these tools, as well as contact information for further technology help should you need it.

For other types of support, please contact Terry Papillon, Betsy Sandlin, Emily Puckette, or Mark Hopwood.
