REMOTE TEACHING INFORMATION

    Below is a set instructions for faculty to quickly create an online course in the event that the law school building is shut down due to coronavirus.  These instructions are designed to familiarize faculty with the basic features of eCampus and Zoom that are essential to conduct a course remotely.  We have tried to keep the instructions as simple as possible.


    Step 1: Create your course shell in eCampus

     See here for instructions.

    Step 2: Create a Zoom link for your course

    1. Please click the link https://tamu.zoom.us/ first and click “Sign in” with your credentials.
    2. See here for video instructions for creating a Zoom meeting and obtaining a meeting link that you can email to students.
    3. When you start your Zoom session, be sure to record it for students who cannot join live.You can set Zoom to record sessions automatically by going to your profile, clicking settings, clicking recordings, and then turning on automatic recording.

    Step 3: Post your Zoom link to your eCampus course

    1. Once you have your Zoom meeting link ready, copy the link.
    2. Go back to your course in eCampus and find the specific area/folder/session where you would like to post the link.We recommend “Virtual Office Hour”:

    *Click the grey bubble near Virtual Office hour, then click Edit.

    * Paste the desired zoom meeting link in the highlighted area.

  • Create Zoom link and Post on eCampus



  • Step 4: Email your Zoom link to your students through the eCampus email feature

    There a couple of ways of sending the Zoom link (or even other contents or information) to students via the email feature on eCampus:

    • Click Email on the Navigation bar. Click the link to email all students. Paste the Zoom link in the email and then click send.
    • Click the Tools/Course tools on the Navigation bar if the course does not have the Email icon set up directly. See the screenshot “Click Tools”. Then instructor needs to click “Send Email”.
