Step Three: Resources

Teaching Anywhere

A variety of technology tools are available for you to teach online whether you choose to deliver it synchronously via web conferencing applications or asynchronously by pre-recording your lectures. It is possible to record your synchronous web conferences and then share the recordings with any students who were unable to attend. Please note that our systems do not automatically record, save, or upload content to Blackboard, Google Drive, or anywhere else online. It is up to the individual faculty member to decide if their recorded material should be uploaded online and its destination. Gabelli IT does not share faculty created content without their owner’s permission.

Please refer to the Fordham Forward webpages for the latest information.
