Universal Design for Learning

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework for educational practices that reflect a high value for both diversity and inclusiveness. Review the resources below to learn more about UDL and its practical application in your online course.

Zoom Video Conferencing

Zoom is a synchronous online collaboration tool that can be used to conduct and record online lectures, host office hours, set up group meeting spaces, and more—all with annotation and whiteboard capabilities.

NOTE: Zoom is continuously updating its platform security and features. For the latest information, visit the Zoom Help Center at support.zoom.us

Zoom and Moodle

See Zoom in action by enrolling yourself in our Zoom with Moodle course.

FACULTY TIP: Students who Zoom on a Chromebook do not have the Annotate option on shared screens. However, the remaining functionality is comparable to that on a computer or laptop... although the video/audio quality is somewhat diminished.
NOTE: For the latest information, review the device comparison chart.

FACULTY TIP: Be sure to log out of your Zoom account after use. If you sign into a duplicate device (such as a computer and laptop) you will be logged out automatically on the first device.

Zoom Cloud-Recordings Retention Plan

Effective May 3, 2021

  • AFTER 1.25 YEARS: ALL cloud-recorded Zoom video will be automatically moved to Zoom Trash 1.25 years after creation. Once a video has been moved to Zoom Trash, it will remain there for 30 days before it is permanently deleted.

  • BEFORE 1.25 YEARS: You may manually remove any of your own cloud-recorded Zoom video that is less than 1.25 years old. The removed video will be stored in your Zoom Trash for 30 days before it is permanently deleted.

  • RECOVERY: At this time we do not have a method to restore permanently-deleted video. However, if you would like to keep a Zoom-recorded video longer than 1.25 years we ask that you instead download the Zoom video recording (.mp4 file) and other associated files (audio transcript .vvt file, audio only .mp4 file, etc.) to your computer  and upload all to Kaltura.

What does the 2023/WI term timeline look like for faculty?

  Course Activity How to Accomplish Suggested Date
Pre-Term Start 1 - Get help with Moodle and/or Zoom

Visit the red bar on any Moodle page under Faculty > *Remote/Online Instruction FAQ* to access resources, upcoming Moodle and Zoom training, and/or email online@clackamas.edu for assistance.

Jan 2-8
2 - Create your remote teaching plan

You'll want to assemble your course assets: syllabus, learning outcomes, assessments, required textbooks, resource materials, etc. before you begin working in Moodle. Take some time to consider how you want your course structured—with a weekly or module/topics format.

Jan 2-8
3 - Update your syllabus

Include your communication and new course details as necessary. Be sure to include a link to CCC Resources and Information for Students During the COVID-19 Pandemic and CCC Support and Emergency Funding Resources too. When you're ready, upload it to Moodle or add it to your welcome email.

Jan 2-8
4 - Identity essential material to distribute

Check your remote teaching plan - what are the essential components for week one? What are your goals for this week, and do any of those goals rely on materials that need to be converted to a digital format?

Jan 2-8
5 - Send first welcome message

Send your welcome message to students to inform them how you will communicate throughout the term, through what medium, and how often.

Jan 5-8
6 - Distribute student remote readiness survey

In your welcome message, consider including this short survey to students. While this will not ultimately be the determinate of how you teach, having a better idea of your students' technology capabilities can inform important decisions you need to make.

Are you ready for online learning?

For example, if less than half of the class has reliable home internet, requiring synchronous sessions on Zoom might not be successful and an asynchronous option should be considered.

Jan 5-8
7 - Review week one

By now you have completed a review of your course content for the first week or two of class, considered how you will deliver your essential content, and communicated critical information to your students. (Take a deep breath.)

Before the class automatically opens on the first day of the term, consider the information you have gathered. Is there anything glaringly missing? Are there stakeholders (your chair, admin, online learning staff) who you need to contact for any information? Remember that you can hide course elements from student view until you are ready to release them.

Jan 5-8
First Week 1 - Post welcome and syllabus

Welcome your students through your established communication method (as you outline in your course syllabus). Introduce yourself and the class.

Jan 9
2 - Take attendance

You'll need to use an asynchronous attendance activity to record attendance such as:

Jan 9-13
3 - Manage late enrollments

As usual, there is likely to be much shuffling of students during the first week of the term. If a student approaches you requesting a late add to your course, you will need to contact Registration.

If you have students who are struggling with technology and access, you can refer them to the Cougar Connect Information Desk.

Jan 9-13
4 - Get started teaching!

Hopefully, by day two or three of the term you can start diving into the real curriculum of the course. Remember that there are best practices, pedagogical recommendations, and more technology resources available via the red bar on any Moodle page under Faculty.

Jan 9-13
Ongoing 1 - Host office hours

Host virtual office hours. This means being available for student questions and consultation during a specific, predetermined period of time. You can host virtual office hours through Zoom video conferencing, or simply be readily available through email or phone...whatever works for you and your class.

Jan 9- >
2 - Deliver content

Keep calm and carry on: deliver your lectures, assess student comprehension, provide grade information and feedback, and engage with your class to the best of your ability.

3 - Get help with Moodle and/or Zoom

Visit the red bar on any Moodle page under Faculty > *Remote/Online Instruction FAQ* to access resources, see upcoming Moodle and Zoom training, and/or email online@clackamas.edu for assistance.

Self-Paced Workshops

Look for an opportunity to share your learning experiences at the SHOW AND TELL: Summer Professional Development Roundtable this fall. Until then, watch what was shared last year.

NOTE: OLET will handle the workshop registration. OLC will then follow up 1-4 days before the start of the workshop with access information via email.

Scheduled Workshops are asynchronous with possibly 1 or 2 optional synchronous sessions during the week. You will need to log in early on Day 1 to avoid being administratively dropped.

Self-Paced Workshops provide asynchronous access for 1 year.
