You can use Gauchospace as a repository of lecture materials, quizzes and exams, embed videos, presentations, and other materials you currently use in your face to face lectures. Panopto will allow you to record and broadcast video later using Gauchocast. Through Zoom, you can offer your lectures online from home.
For now, we are assuming that your online class sessions are meeting at the same dates and times as the currently scheduled in-person sessions. If you would like to record and put select lectures online and make them available asynchronously, please let us know.
We will be holding periodical Zoom calls to make sure that you all are comfortable with the tools you need to use, and also help you run the pilots. Kindly attend one of those sessions, even if you are familiar with the system, as we all can benefit from your experience.
In the meantime, here are some resources:
Moving your classes online:

You have the option to substitute formal exams and quizzes with class projects. If you typically use multiple-choice style exams and need an online alternative, the best solution will be to use the Quiz Tool in GauchoSpace to build an alternate exam. The Quiz Tool allows you to build an exam from a reusable question pool. In addition, the exams allow for randomizing the order that questions are presented, randomizing the order in which responses are presented for each question, locking down the browser window during the quiz, and randomizing what questions each student gets on their exam from a larger pool (equivalent to preparing multiple versions of the same exam).

No proctoring option is available to UCSB PaCE at this time.
