This site provides a variety of resources and services to help you make the transition to teaching remotely.
This toolkit was developed to provide faculty with options to keep teaching and for faculty to consider providing options for students to support them as they keep learning.

Zoom is Dartmouth’s tool for synchronous video meeting, audio conferencing, and screen sharing.
Learn how to use Zoom to share screens from document cameras, iPhones and iPads.
Google Hangouts Meet
Google Hangouts Meet is similar to Zoom, and is available as a backup solution.
Canvas is Dartmouth’s primary learning management system and plays a pivotal role in our move to rapid remote teaching.
Instructure has 24/7 support for Canvas. You may access this support via the Help button in your course. Articles and Guides are available in the Canvas Community.
Canvas has a forum-based discussion tool.
Hypothesis brings discussion directly to course content by enabling students and teachers to add comments and start conversations in the margins of instructional texts and other resources.
With VoiceThread, instructors and students can share and comment on documents using microphone, webcam, texting or phone.
Screen Capture and Recording
Kaltura Capture Desktop and the Kaltura Course Media gallery allows you to record and share media with your students via Canvas.
Training and Support
We offer targeted training and support for Zoom, Canvas, and video capture tools (e.g. Kaltura). These will be offered as either new user training or drop-ins for more experienced users with specific questions.
