  1. Complete the Online Teaching Certification to familiarize yourself with D2L and LSC resources
  2. Familiarize yourself with the available Instructional Technologies for Course Contingency
  3. Review the steps for Moving Your Face-to-Face Course Online
  4. Refer to the Online Faculty Handbook and Recommended Practices for course development
  5. Consult the VTAC Event Calendar for D2L training sessions and open-lab times
