Student and Faculty Online Learning Resource Hubs
The Online Learning Center developed two comprehensive Online Learning Resource Hubs for students and faculty, with extensive tools to help ensure success in the online environment. The Student Resource Hub includes guides to using the Canvas learning management system and other key tools, with both Quick Start and comprehensive Zoom guides. The hub also features online orientation information and links to obtain live technical support from library experts as well as an Online Learning Success Tips video, produced by the Office of Communications. Using similar features in the Faculty Resource Hub, Online Learning Center staff, working with the Office of Professional Development, were central in ensuring the successful transition of 16,000 students as well as 80 percent of all classes—1,200 in winter quarter and 1,000 in spring—to online formats during the pandemic. Previously, only about 20 percent of these classes were taught online. In the month prior to spring quarter, more than 600 faculty and staff participated in online training.
