The COVID-19 virus has put schools across the world in an unprecedented position, requiring many to quickly transition from traditional, in-person education to an online experience. ArkansasIDEAS has created a learning path with our partners at LinkedIn Learning to identify courses that help explain teaching online – from leading practices in online teaching to EdTech tools like Canvas and collaboration software like Microsoft Teams.
As ArkansasIDEAS users, you have access to these courses (and hundreds of others) for free!
