Tools for Teaching & Learning Remotely


For much of the academic year scheduled classes meet as expected, without incident. However, there may be instances when the “norm” is disrupted due to factors outside of our control like severe storms, health risks, or other emergencies. To ensure instruction can move forward, WashU has several tools available within Canvas at your disposal. Leveraging these tools, such as those listed below, will help you continue teaching throughout the disruption.

The following tools support teaching and learning within Canvas.
