Please join the Instructional Technology Development Program in discussing tips and strategies for supporting and scaffolding learning when your 'best laid plans' for class go awry - weather, illness, conferences, scheduling, etc.  Instructors need to be flexible with content and communication.  Sakai can help facilitate contact and engagement to your students, even when a face to face class is no longer an option.
