  • SHARE your contact data with your students
  • ASK your students if they have access to Internet, software and devices which are necessary to take part in online classes
  • DECIDE on the main communication channel (e-mail, Messenger, Teams). Choose one which everyone will be using.
  • CREATE the class schedule and set the hours to contact your students - try to run classes in line with your class schedule
  • SET your online office hours when your students can contact you and share them with your students
  • PLAN the dates for sending materials and papers (adjust the form of giving credits to distance learning)
  • DETERMINE the communication channel in emergency situations which require quick response (e.g. telephone)

3. PREPARATION FOR CLASSES
