The University of Washington announced last week that it would cancel in-person classes and have students take courses and finals remotely. Image: The UW campus in 2017, photo by Priyaranjan Pattnayak.

To help stop the spread of COVID-19 throughout the United States, several universities, including the University of Washington, Stanford, Columbia and Princeton, have chosen to temporarily forgo in-person classes in favor of remote learning. The decision to transition classes is part of an attempt at “social distancing,” the practice of limiting large gatherings and in-person contact to slow the transmission of the virus.

In most of these cases, it has been left up to faculty to make decisions about how to move their classes online. In an effort to crowdsource resources, we’ve gathered tweets and links that instructors are sharing to help, and will continue to update this list as we receive new ones.

For the most up-to-the-moment updates, please visit our Twitter feed. You can also explore resources others are sharing here.

The new platform is part of CAA’s strategic plan for better serving the membership and offering improved communications.

We are pleased to introduce the #CAA2016 Conference Social Media Wall.

The Social Media Wall will be a space where attendees and the public can make contributions and follow the conversation on a single, updating page. The Social Media Wall will gather any Twitter or Instagram posts using any of the #CAA2016 conference hashtags below.
