Dear Faculty and Students,  

Welcome back to a virtual experience at IC. We are grateful to resume our academic experiences and know that this week will bring new routines and updates all around. As we begin getting re-acquainted with one another, from our remote locations, please know that we see and value the extra efforts faculty are making to keep teaching and that our students are making to keep learning under circumstances none of us could have imagined at the beginning of the semester.   

On our first day of remote instruction, our Teaching & Learning with Technology Team reports that we hosted 970 Zoom meetings, and 4,430 users played 1,775 videos on media.ithaca.edu (Kaltura). Congratulations to all on jumping right in to resume our important work, with the help and guidance of one another and an extraordinary TLT team.
