Due to coronavirus (COVID-19), many colleges/universities are moving to fully online classes. 


In this webinar, select educators will discuss their approaches of moving a course online.  New media and delivery technologies must be adopted along with shifts in pedagogy – all while keeping course goals and program objectives at the forefront.   We’ll focus on what is practical in a short time-frame and highlight readily available resources.  We’ll hear from both veterans of online learning and educators who have just started teaching online in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.


Presenters include: 

  • Patricia Carbajales, Clemson University
  • Peter Knoop, University of Michigan
  • Diana Ter-Ghazaryan, University of Miami  
  • Joseph Kerski, University of Denver/Esri
  • Jennifer Bernstein, USC/UCGIS

Looking forward to your webinar. I have moved my own GIS classes/students to remote learning/teaching and its working really well...I look forward to any advice and assistance i can garner from your webinar. I am using teams from MSOffice365 to provide the online classes.

I also look forward. the main struggle i face now is that half the class are Mac users and they struggle with installing Arcgis. is there an esri link or forum I can guide them to?

Have you ever heard of boot camp for Mac, essential ArcGIS is run on windows, you can switch the Mac to windows with boot camp, the only thing to consider is getting a piece of software “parallel” so the Mac user will not have to reboot their Mac to switch between windows and Mac.... have a quick search before the remote class and you should easily have your students sorted

Let me know how you get on

Kind Regards
