There are many reasons you may want to move your class online temporarily, including weather, illness, or family emergencies. Fortunately, there are tools available at WVU to help keep your class progressing during unexpected closures or absences.
During any crisis or closure impacting the University as a whole, it is important that you watch for guidance from the WVU Office of the Provost and also from your college. Additionally, sign up for WVU Alert to receive urgent WVU updates.
Since Spring 2020 and the closure of our campuses due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Office of the Provost has implemented new guidelines and options to ensure faculty members' success.
Most courses at Health Sciences have a secure online course in SOLE. SOLE is the HSC portal for online education and information. A course can be requested at any time by visiting the SOLE Site Request form.
If you are at WVU Health Sciences Center and are not using SOLE, visit the WVU Teaching and Learning Commons' Contingency Planning and Preparedness information.
