Now that the hurricane has passed, the Center for eLearning has suggestions to reduce anxiety and stress of the online students.

  • Be aware that online students may be displaced and/or without access to power or the internet
  • Encourage students who have access to check-in
  • Reassure the students that you are aware of the power outages and potentially stressful situations
  • Put together a communication plan to message changes in due dates
    • Use announcement tools for overall class messages
    • Use a Q & A discussion board to promote consistent messaging and answer the question on time
  • Be flexible about group participation
  • Communicate daily about updates

The Center for eLearning is here to support you!
