KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: Important information for Teachers and Moderators

 

Teachers: 

 

Teachers are required to host their own classrooms. This allows the University to offer more classes per session, and gives teachers the ability to use their preferred platform and their preferred web conferencing settings. Teachers are required to provide the class url by adding it to the class description at least 10 days prior to the event.  

 

If a teacher is unable to host their own classroom, or are uncomfortable doing so, the University of Atlantia offers a limited number of University-assisted rooms, offered in Zoom or Google Meet. These assisted classrooms are available on a first come/first served basis, and fill up quickly. URLs for University-assisted classrooms will be sent to the teacher and added to the class description by University staff. To request a University assisted room, please reach out to the Deputy for Online Learning, Sofia the Orange (onlinelearning@atlantia.sca.org). 

 

Please do not share the class url beyond registered students. This way University staff get an accurate count of event attendance, and can be sure that there are no issues with unauthorized spammers attending a class.  

 

Moderators, also called Teaching Assistants (TAs), are strongly encouraged for all classes to help with admitting students into the class, taking attendance, monitoring the chat, etc.  Teachers are responsible for recruiting their moderator in advance for each class. Want to teach but don’t have a moderator? Reach out to the Teaching Assistant Coordinator, Sof’ia of Ponte Alto (university-deputy3@atlantia.sca.org).  

 

Due to high demand, the University of Atlantia is asking teachers to please limit their class proposals to three classes per University session. This gives more teachers an opportunity to teach per session, and balances the strain on University resources and staff.  Teachers who would like to submit class proposals exceeding the 3 class limit, should reach out to Deputy Chancellor- Dean of Academics, Esa inghean Donnachaidh (university-deputy3@atlantia.sca.org).  The extra classes may be waitlisted and offered if space is available, and additional information may be required.  Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.  

 

Teachers are responsible for reporting attendance to University after completion of each session. This information supports the University degree system by letting us know how many total hours each student attended.  Moderators may take attendance during class (University staff highly recommends this as a moderator task); however, it is the teacher’s responsibility to report attendance on the University website.  Need assistance? Reach out to the Registrar or the Online Learning Deputy for help (registrar@atlantia.sca.org or onlinelearning@atlantia.sca.org).  

 

Teachers who are going to be on camera should make an attempt at garb.

 

Teachers must indicate whether they plan to record their class in their class description.

 

Teachers are responsible for following copyright law as applicable to sharing class material, distribution of class handouts, presentations, etc. to the students and / or others. Some popular ways to share handouts and course materials include uploading  files to Google Drive, Dropbox, or a similar service and then sharing the link with students, and posting materials to a personal blog, Facebook page, or other social media presence. 

 

Teachers are responsible for time management. Please be aware of the class start and end time and strive to be on time throughout the day. Please note that classes end at :50 to allow ten minutes to change classes.

 

All classes are listed in Eastern Standard time. Classes will begin at 10am and end 6:30pm. Breaks will be from noon-1pm and 4-4:30pm. 

 

Teaching Assistants: 

Recommended moderator duties: 

 

Take attendance for the instructor.  One way to do this is to ask everyone to type their SCA name into the chat feature, and then copy and paste or otherwise capture the names from the chat. This is also handy for students whose online account name does not match their SCA name.  

 

Monitor any “waiting rooms” and admit students as they arrive. 

 

Facilitate student questions that may be submitted via the chat function.

 

Help teachers stay on schedule (i.e. start and end on time). Please note that classes end at :50 to allow ten minutes to change classes.  

 

ALL UNIVERSITY ATTENDEES, TEACHERS, AND MODERATORS:

Please access and download all info needed from the University site in advance of February 13th (University day) to help prevent the website from slowing down due to the increased traffic. Thank you in advance!
