Online Teaching Resources for CAS Faculty

CETCI is Here to Help

The CETCI team is available, so please reach out to them if you need help! You are not bothering them — they've been expecting this, and are prepared for your calls and emails. Whether you need a quick answer or a big brainstorming session, they're ready to talk with you.

To get in touch with them, you can email them individually: Al Weiss (alweiss@pacificu.edu), Tatiana Piatanova (tapiatanova@pacificu.edu), or Robbie Pock (pockr@pacificu.edu) or simply send a message to edtech@pacificu.edu at any time to set up an appointment. Due to social distancing, they will not have face-to-face office hours. However, they are always available by e-mail or Zoom, so please reach out to them over e-mail to set up an appointment.

  • Remember the 10-minute Rule: if you are struggling to make something work or figure something out for longer than 10 minutes, you’re in diminishing returns, so just email CETCI.
  • Practice with them! It is a good idea to practice using new technology tools before you try them with students. Let us know if you want to practice using Zoom or another tool/technique.

Use Zoom Like a Pro - NEWS FOR ZOOM USERS!

All Pacific University faculty and students now automatically have access to a Zoom Pro license (so you get all the bells and whistles) when you go to pacificu.zoom.us. Visit our Zoom resources page for a full menu of Zoom tutorials or take a look at our YouTube tutorial for help on setting up your Pacific Zoom account. UIS has also a great help document on accessing Pacific’s Zoom account.

Be aware of "ZoomBombing" and how to prevent it

ZoomBombing is a new form of trolling in which a person who is not an invited participant to a Zoom meeting enters the gathering and attempts to disrupt it in ways that are often offensive.
