RESOURCES FOR ALL
As the UCI campus transitions to a remote learning and working environment, you’re going to start hearing about things like Zoom, Canvas, Yuja, and digital platforms to connect with others. The UCI BioSci Remote site will help you navigate your new digital environment. Learn about resources, policies, and news during COVID-19.
Find information to help teach students, use Zoom, and stay connected with others.
We want to make the transition to online classes as easy as possible for you. This is a challenging time for all of us, as we adjust to a new normal in our daily lives. But we will get through it together. And this new online learning environment will help everyone stay on track and keep moving forward.
As our homes become our new offices, we need to learn new ways to adapt to our new environments. Learn how to set yourself up for success in our new remote environment – whether that’s your kitchen, home office or decked out coffee table.
