In the event that students are unable to physically attend classes due to an unusual situation (e.g., COVID-19 or weather-related event), faculty can continue to teach their courses online using UB Learns.
The Center for Educational Innovation's Teaching Beyond the Campus website can help guide you as you consider the best path forward when navigating these potential challenges.
Updates made through the UB Learns Class Setup Tool will take effect within three hours.
The UB Scoring Services website has additional information on grading and assessing students in virtual environments.
In the Grade Center, you can add and manage your students' grades for assignments, tests, discussion posts, journals, blogs, wikis and more. You can also create grade columns for any activity or requirement you want to grade, such as special projects, participation or attendance.
In addition, you can use Grade Center for ungraded items, such as surveys or self-tests.
In addition to the native tools of UB Learns, integrations with existing university services, including Panopto and Webex, extend the functionality and outreach of UB Learns.
If you are having general computer problems or problems logging into UB Learns, please contact the UBIT Help Center.
