Faculty gathered to discuss various eLearning Models that can apply to the Otis College curriculum. Above is a video recording of the presentation. Below are additional resources from that session.
At this time the College is hoping to have as many classes as possible return to on-campus. However, if your class works well online, blended, or hyflex - you can discuss these options with your chair/department.
We condensed many of the ideas and best practices around online instruction discussed in our 6-week pedagogy course, "Bricks, Clicks, and Learning" to provide a basic set of guidelines to work from in considering virtual instruction for your courses.

Students will continue to be responsible for all coursework, though suitable accommodations will be available when necessary. Students who are sick should not attend class. They should contact their faculty member as well as the Student Health and Wellness Center for guidance. If a student is required to quarantine or isolate, they can work with faculty and their chairs to continue their work to stay on track with their coursework remotely. If severely ill, the student's department chair will work with Student Affairs to determine the best options for the student.
The first day of class will set the overall tone for the rest of the semester even when online.
Below are our top recommendations! Don't let class be just a "Syllabus Day." We recommend holding your first class synchronously on zoom.
