A quick note: The Stanford Online High School–an independent high school that operates fully online–has created video tutorials designed for schools that may need to close classrooms and pivot online. “All guidance is platform-agnostic, focusing on the essential steps for preparing to teach online in a short period of time.”
Note: Zoom–which provides a turnkey video conferencing solution–has made its product free for K-12 institutions during the COVID-19 crisis. This can help schools spin up online courses quickly. More on that here.
