[08/24/20] The Canvas and Zoom issues seem fixed now!
Urgent: There seems a problem with accessing Zoom today. It is being worked on by UITS. For now to access Zoom, please access through the Zoom Client you installed your computer (or mobile app) instead of the Web interface. Here is how to log in through your Zoom client: https://kb.iu.edu/d/aodv#login or https://iu.mediaspace.kaltura.com/media/1_q7rjj12c
Dear instructors, just a reminder, please make sure you publish your courses on Canvas now (or, if the course’s Canvas site is not completely ready, publish at least those portions that provide students information about how to log in or attend, a schedule for the at least the first week of instruction, how to contact the instructor, etc.).
As you well know, this semester is not as straightforward as a normal one where it may suffice for the student to locate the correct building and room in order to attend her or his first classes. Some additional messaging is warranted to help students get ready for their classes. A simple message, sent through Canvas or via email, providing guidance on how students go about attending or connecting to a course will go a long way to reduce anxiety among those students, especially our newly enrolled ones. It will also help all of our students get off to a good start academically this semester. --- Reminder from the College Dean
