Bagley College of Engineering COVID-19 Guidelines  DETAILS

Summer 2020 Faculty/Staff Information

Visit the Online Learning Resources page for more information about teaching online courses.

Please note there are numerous ways to engage with your students online; just a few are listed below:

  • Note about Academic Integrity: Resources including "Methods to Maintain Academic Integrity without Proctoring," and "Getting Started with Honorlock for Faculty" are available here.
    • Honorlock - due to resource constraints faculty should limit use of Honorlock to essential tests only, if possible, finals or the last exam of the semester.
  • Videos –You can use a brief video to share your expectations for the week, alternative learning methods, and important subject matter.
  • Discussion Boards – Flip your teaching and ask the students to read texts and slides prior to original class time and host an online Canvas discussion board about the week’s materials.
  • Meetings – Schedule times with your class to discuss materials and address activities for the week. Record the meeting for students unable to access the meeting synchronously.
  • Open source content – you may benefit from reviewing content currently available through YouTube or other sources.  You can provide students with information about specific topics in this manner without having to record new lectures or videos.
  • Laboratories – more information regarding laboratories will be posted as soon as possible.

A great resource for faculty on making this transition is available here: https://www.msstate.edu/acfaculty
