Resources to Share with Your Students

As Elizabeth Losh wrote in a recent opinion piece, we can’t assume all our students are tech-savvy. This post collects several tutorials and ed tech resources you can share with your students.

Blackboard Course “Are You Ready?”
Hunter College is offering “Are You Ready?” – a free 30-minute online readiness course – that teaches students essential strategies for online learning. Students who complete the course will receive a certificate to show their readiness to handle online coursework.

Most students are already enrolled in the course on Blackboard. It appears under “My Organizations” as “Hunter College CUNY-Student Online Readiness Course – Are You Ready?”

If students do not see the course, they can consult the Are You Ready? self-enrollment instructions (PDF), or contact studenthelpdesk@hunter.cuny.edu for assistance.
