The COVID-19 pandemic forced KSU instructors to emergency remote/distance education in spring and summer semesters. As we continue instruction into the 2020-2021 academic year, a growing list of KSU-developed resources is now available to help instructors plan and facilitate research-based online instruction within our current challenges. 

The following list of resources is categorized by function, including: (1) resources for online course design and implementation, (2) resources for adjusting online instruction due to health pandemic, (3) resources for adjusting online instruction due to reignited push for racial justice, and (4) research-based, accessible resources about online instruction. 

More recent lists of technological resources can be found at KSU’s CETL, Bagwell College of Education Tech Sessions, Digital Learning Innovations, or University Information and Technology Services (UITS) websites.
