Spring 2020 Course Transition Tracking Form


The information provided here is intended to assist the faculty in effectively transitioning face-to-face/blended/hybrid courses to online/distance delivery as part of JSU’s planned response to the COVID-19 virus. To assist in this transition, Online@JSU and the Technology Support Center will provide technical and course-design support. However, questions or clarification regarding the options below should be addressed to the faculty member’s department head.

  2. Course will be changed from face-to-face/blended/hybrid to online delivery using Canvas.  (Canvas course build tutorial link)

Extremely Important: For all delivery methods outside of the secure Canvas LMS, it is imperative that no specific information on any student’s grades, performance, or personally identifiable data is exchanged.

Course Transition Documentation

This includes all sections, even those with no change in delivery method. Completed forms are needed by midnight, Tuesday, March 17.
