ACU has a variety of tools to help you teach remotely. Most of these tools are integrated into Canvas for simplicity of access. Here are some of the tools you can consider:

When you find yourself unable to teach in a regular face-to-face setting, consider these factors and strategies:
- Determine you schedule
- Communicate effectively
- Balance synchronous and asynchronous teaching
An emergency may force you to use some tools you have never used before to teach, and you will feel the need to teach your students how to use them. There is no need to reinvent the wheel.
