An important part of Amherst’s planning surrounding COVID-19 is developing strategies and providing technological tools that will allow faculty to continue to offer students the best possible educational experience, in the face of what could be significant challenges caused by the virus. Depending on circumstances, it may become necessary for courses to be taught online for some portion of the spring 2020 semester. Faculty are asked to begin preparing now for this possibility. The college is committed to providing robust technical training and support for this effort. This site offers a central point of information about these resources.
