COVID-19: Information for Faculty

The Getting Your Course Online Manual provides step-by-step instructions for moving your face-to-face (F2F) course content online.

Additional effective teaching resources are available on the Fletcher Center's Resources webpage.

Please see the following overview of online resources, available to all faculty:

Learning Management System

Faculty have access to build classes in the D2L learning management system. D2L allows for posting course materials, assessing student work, asynchronous discussion and built-in web conferencing.

If you have not completed any training for D2L, please visit the self-paced D2L Training for Instructors course. The D2L Support team has also shared the following list of resources, for faculty preparing to quickly move their courses online: Changing from live classroom to online courses with D2L.

E-Learning Tools

Snagit and Camtasia

Snagit and Camtasia are screen-capturing software tools for which HCC has a specific number of licenses. Snagit is the more basic/easier to use version. Once you make a video, you can then upload your videos to Panopto and create links to or embed the videos in your D2L course site.


Panopto is a video hosting and content management platform integrated with D2L. With Panopto, you can easily record and edit videos on Windows and Mac, upload existing video and audio files, easily embed videos within D2L, import auto-generated captions, and create interactive video quizzes and sync grades with D2L.

Zoom Video Conferencing

This tool can be used for hosting virtual meetings with students, on either a 1-on-1 or group basis. This website provides a detailed walkthrough of the steps involved with using this tool: Getting Started in Zoom.

Proctoring Exams

Proctortrack Software is available for virtual proctoring. ProctorTrack Support can be reached by live-chat, phone, or email 24x7x365.

Points of Contact

We are strongly encouraging everyone to familiarize yourselves with the aforementioned list of resources. Information for any upcoming training sessions on campus, and more detailed information about these tools will be available on the D2L Instructor Resources classroom.
