A variety of circumstances might require you to temporarily teach your class online with minimal notice: a campus closure, inclement weather, academic travel, a family emergency, or an outbreak of a communicable illness. This guide will help you access both the technological and pedagogical support you need to make this shift quickly and effectively.

We are expecting high call volumes during this unprecedented time; please be patient.

Priority phone support will be given via 924-HELP for faculty and students who are in an online class or attempting to connect to one that is starting soon. If you are in an online class or trying to join one, please use 434-924-HELP.

If you are not in an online class, use any of our contact methods (chat, email, online) at https://in.virginia.edu/helpdesk
