Preparing to Learn Remotely

Ensure you have access to a desktop or laptop computer, a webcam and a microphone (these may be built into your machine), and stable Internet service at home, or wherever you are most likely to be. Click on the Technology menu on the left for more details.

We recommend adding the Moodle mobile app to your personal devices for quick access.

As we transition to online teaching, learning and remote work, it is more important than ever to be mindful of online threats posed by scammers and bad actors seeking to further disrupt our efforts. LITS asks that you remain vigilant in the coming weeks and utilize our resources to stay safe online: 

  • Fortify the security of your Zoom meetings and prevent uninvited guests from disrupting your calls with our Zoom Security Recommendations
