10/16/2018: FSU Main Campus Resuming Normal Business Hours & Making Up Class Time

FSU's main campus in Tallahassee resumed normal business hours beginning Monday, October 15. However, the Panama City campus remains closed and our thoughts are with our Noles who have been hit hard by Hurricane Michael. For more information, please see the FSU Alerts page.

Resources for Making Up Class Time

Are you looking for ways to make up class contact hours in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael? The Office of Distance Learning, FSU Libraries, and the Center for the Advancement of Teaching can help. Below are a number of options for getting your courses back on track.

Online Tools and Resources

The university offers several options for delivering course content online. The resources and techniques listed below are available for both face-to-face and online instructors.

ODL Media Studio Assistance

The ODL media studio will be available to help instructors develop short videos of lectures that may have been missed during the university’s closure. You can either work one-on-one with the ODL Media Team for video assistance or use the One Button Studio to develop your own. Kaltura Media is also available for instructors who would like to capture video from their own computer.

To schedule a media consultation or recording, visit our registration page. You can also contact D.D. Garbarino at dgarbarino@fsu.edu or 850-644-7574. For technical support, contact 850-644-8004 or canvas@fsu.edu.

Walk-in Clinics

Get help distilling your learning goals, planning community-building work, determining what material could best be conveyed online, adjusting your schedule and the timing of assessments, identifying resources, selecting and using a range of tools, and more.
