Even in face to face classes instructers are strongly encouraged to use digital course materials whenever possible so that a quick change of course delivery method can take place if necessary.

Step 6: Practice
Practice running a class session via Zoom with TAs, or UZEM consultants before the semester starts is always a good idea. You may have internet connection issues or struggle with finding a feature that you want to use in Zoom. So practice can help you to take cousin before the synchronous lectures starts. If you teach with a whiteboard and need to handwrite during your class, it is also good idea to get in touch with an UZEM consultant to learn some techniques for transitioning handwriting to online environment.
