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.”
In addition to this videos, the Online High School will host a free webinar today at 2pm California time. You can register here and learn more about the transition to online teaching.
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.

The missing ingredient, of course, is some way to receive all this information/instruction. How useful is one telephone? Not very. You need *two.* Preferably more but at least two.
The students/families who need this the most, those who can least afford to miss instruction, are the least likely to have a way to access online education. Districts/school systems that offer it are likely based in areas without that pronounced a degree of inequality. But that’s not universal.
