Online Ed Tips: End of Spring 2024

Dear MiraCosta Faculty, 

Congrats on (just about) making it to summer. Here are reminders and opportunities as you wrap up spring and start thinking about what’s next.

Canvas End of Term

After June 6, your spring Canvas classes go into read-only mode for you and your students. If you wish to remove access to any of your course materials for your current students beyond this semester, you need to do so by then. Review our Canvas end-of-term guide for details. It also discusses what you need to do if you have any students who will receive Incomplete grades.

Summer Professional Learning Opportunities

  • The Online Teaching Conference is in Long Beach, June 26-28. Early bird registration ends May 24. Contact me if you’re interested in funding to support your registration.  
  • There are some great @ONE online teaching self-paced courses. (Unfortunately, the facilitated summer courses seem to be full.) 
  • free online conference called Cal OER returns for its fourth year, Aug. 7-8. The call for proposals closes June 3. Conference registration ($25) is open now.
  • When’s the last time you explored the TIC website? Start on the home page and see where it leads you – there are many great resources including workshop recordings, tutorials, examples, and guidelines for online teaching.

Have a super summer!
