This toolkit is written based on 7+ years of experience building online courses.
It includes resources for both teachers and students, including:
- How to evaluate and convert a syllabus
- Create a remote learning policy
- Advice for teachers and students
- Best practices for online education, and more!
In 2020, students around the world went into lock-down due to the sudden spread of COVID-19. In-person classes were forced to quickly convert into online learning experiences. Campus-wide events were canceled. Students had to move out of their dorms with little notice.
The fact is, remote is NOT impossible to accommodate!
While the adjustments made for COVID-19 may seem to be short-term and proactive, a cultural shift could spark an entirely new and inclusive way of thinking about learning. The fact is, remote is NOT impossible! Will you be ready for it? This is your survival guide for the future of school.
What's the deal with this being Pay-What-You-Want??
The toolkit is available on a Pay-What-You-Want basis. We do not expect any compensation for our resources/materials as we want this to be as accessible as possible to anyone and everyone. Our mission is to build capacity, not to make money. This said, if you are able to contribute, it is greatly appreciated! We recommend a donation of $10-20. 50% of the proceeds from this toolkit will be donated to food banks and organizations focusing on students who are food insecure and/or homeless. We've already donated 12,000+ meals!
Side-note, we also have a toolkit about remote work. If you're interested in that, check out Make it Remote: Work!
