Preparing to Learn Online

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 wherever you are most likely to be. View the Technology section of this guide for more details.

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

Stay Safe Online

As we spend more time learning, teaching, and working remotely, it is more important than ever to be mindful of online threats posed by scammers and bad actors seeking to disrupt our efforts. LITS asks that you remain vigilant 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

  • Learn how to avoid phishing attempts and report suspicious emails in the Phish Bowl

Library Services & Hours

The library building is currently closed, but LITS staff are working remotely to support you! Please see our hours page for details about how to access LITS services.
