Use the big blue “Enter Class” button to go straight to a specific online course.
Your course Outline lists all your discussion and assignment topics. Click the topic you would like to participate in.
You can collect work digitally by creating a topic to which students can upload their files. To add or edit topics, use the global navigation to choose “Discussion.”
Create a new topic by clicking the Add Section Topic link. (If you are teaching multiple sections of the same course, you can use the Global Topics interface to create a single set of topics available in all sections, but this approach may cause confusion regarding specific due dates.)
Pro tip: If you associate your new topic with a module, the topic will also appear on the Outline, making it easier for students to find.
You receive notifications from the “bell” icon on your computer, and you can manage how you receive notifications in your settings.
You can participate in the Discussion by either creating a new post or commenting on someone else’s post.
Create a new post by clicking the Create New Post button.
Add a subject line and any appropriate text. Upload your images and files. You can also record an audio or video message.
Zoom is available to all Academy faculty. This tool allows you to join live online meetings, share video, images, record your meetings and more.
Please start by installing the Zoom Desktop Client for meetings: https://zoom.us/download.
LOGIN: To set up your new Zoom account, please visit https://art.zoom.us/ and click Sign in. You will then be prompted to enter your Academy credentials , which are the same login as your Academy email - Microsoft 365/Outlook* login.
Please note: If you are a part-time faculty who has yet to setup your @i.art.edu Academy email account, you can do so by logging in to the LMS Portal, then clicking on the large instructors tile > Faculty Email link. If you have any questions, or need help setting up this account please can contact IT at 415-618-6400 or email@example.com.
Getting Started – To host a meeting, use PERSONAL MEETING ID (found on your Zoom profile) OR you can schedule a single use or reoccurring meeting link by clicking on SCHEDULE A MEETING in the upper right-hand corner of your Zoom profile.
Important: Please make sure you’ve posted your Zoom meeting URL in your online discussion so your students can find it.
Audio – Zoom lets you use microphone or phone audio. We suggest that whenever possible you use your microphone for audio (built-in, plug-in, or headset). If your microphone isn’t working you can also dial in via phone.
Recording – You can record your live meetings to the cloud or locally to your computer
