Remote Tools and Platforms

Learning Management System


All Emory courses already have an associated site on Canvas, which can be leveraged for many activities that instructors will want to employ, including sharing resources, delivering assessments, facilitating online discussions, and grading.



Zoom is a web-based videoconferencing service that can be used for sharing live video feeds, recording video, and conducting meetings.

Advice for Connecting Online

Working from home means relying on your residential internet service and you may experience down times or slower speeds—even more so with much of the population working from home. To manage this risk, we’d like to offer the following suggestions.


Develop and communicate a contingency plan for if/when a network disruption occurs. Post the plan to Canvas and reiterate at the beginning of class.


If you have a TA, consider giving them directives if you do drop off (have them present the slides and you lecture). Consider calling via telephone into your class.

Other Connection Options

If you do drop from your residential internet, know how to switch to a mobile hotspot. Join and present from Zoom on your phone using the cellular data network.

Optimize for Your Course

Limit or turn off any other devices or streaming services (Netflix, Disney+, etc.) on your home network that may consume bandwidth.
