Here is a page that the Online Learning Consortium put together that provides "a collection of resources and initiatives to support your efforts in moving courses to an online format when emergency situations arise."

Non-exhaustive resources:

A textbook recommendation for any instructor who is new to online teaching - 

"Teaching Online: A Practical Guide" by Susan Ko and Steve Rossen  ISBN 9780415832434. It is "an accessible, introductory, and comprehensive guide for anyone who teaches online."

Faculty in the college of pharmacy have been creating videos of their PowerPoint lectures by adding narrations to them. The advantage of using this platform for creating video is that it is easy to edit and does not require re-recording a lecture each time. Each slide narration can be edited individually and a new video can be created using previous narrations. The links below provide step-by-step instructions on how to create these.


Telework Support Resources: On Demand

You can now directly access a dedicated page of Telework Support Resources for you and your team. This page currently includes links to a LinkedIn Learning Playlist, quick reads for employees who might engage in telework, supervisors who manage teleworkers, Faculty resources, and more.
