My technology mix – I've been using Microsoft Teams to chat with my students and make videos, though I have no skills at editing recordings. I was already using Blackboard Collaborate Ultra for online tutorial sessions and the features now available to staff during shutdown have increased (presumably at a cost to my university). I will continue to use both of these platforms.
Treading water – I wouldn't say my institution has been a lifesaver. We were expected to change things from face-to-face to online literally overnight. The university is focused on student, not academic, well-being.
Speaking of students – Many are anxious about exams, their performance, and the impact online delivery is having on their learning.
Testing, testing – I’m writing exams in new formats for a number of courses and conducting formative assessments so students can monitor their performance better.
