Any number of unforeseen circumstances may require prolonged closures of the campus or campus buildings and it is important to prepare for the health and safety of our faculty, staff, and students. USC Aiken has the resources available to avoid class cancellations if instructors are put in a position to temporarily teach a face-to-face class in an online format with minimal notice. This guide will provide you with some actions to take when making that shift quickly to stay on schedule for the semester. Please know that USC Aiken’s Office of Distance Learning is the primary support resource for Blackboard and faculty training for pedagogy and technology for learning.

Join the USC Aiken Keep Teaching Continuity Organization on Blackboard for more helpful resources, the latest announcements, and to engage directly with USC Aiken Distance Learning staff. To join the organization you should log into Blackboard first, click the link, click “Enroll” on the left hand side and then “submit.” You will now be a participant in the organization.
