March 25, 2020 Message to Students - Moving to Remote Teaching Through Spring Quarter

by
March 27, 2020

Hello Everyone,

As you learned earlier from President Bridges' message, Evergreen is moving to remote teaching and services through Spring Quarter. We are working to ensure that you are supported in your remote learning with “Keep Learning” workshops and access to technology. We know how important it is for you to have the tools and assistance you’ll need to be successful in this new learning environment—one that enables us to stay healthy and connected, while engaging in creative new modes of learning.

Remote learning means you will need to use a computer, tablet or phone that can access Canvas and Zoom. Please visit Evergreen’s website for information on successful remote learning, including technology needs and tips.  Examples include:

  • Canvas and Zoom training for students during the first three days of the quarter when there are no classes. Students can register to attend a workshop. Self-guided tutorials will also be offered via the Keep Learning Canvas site and Evergreen’s Helpwiki.
  • Technical support for students will continue to be available from our student technology support staff by submitting a help ticket and coming soon via chat and Zoom drop-in support.
  • Students lacking technology will be able to checkout a Chromebook. A supply is on its way and you should refer back to the successful remote learning site for updates.

Advisors are available and eager to help undergraduate students navigate this new mode of learning and connect you with the resources you need. Staff are available Monday – Friday 9AM – 4:30 PM. You can reach them via text at 360-323-9201 or email at advising@evergreen.edu.  Graduate students with questions should connect directly with their program director or assistant director.

We are aware of how challenging this time has been for many to navigate. We will be ready to launch our spring quarter with a new learning environment and a commitment to your success. Please remember that TAO is an online resource and Student Wellness Services is also available. As Greeners, we have an opportunity to support our community and each other by adhering to the Stay Healthy, Stay Home directive issued by Governor Inslee. Please take care of yourself and others.


Best,


Wendy Endress, Ph.D.
Vice Provost for Student & Academic Life
