Due to a natural disaster or other problem preventing your access to campus, you can not lead your lecture. If you cannot get a colleague to deliver your lecture or fill in for you, there are some options we can offer.
Post the text of your lecture on Gauchospace for students to read, along with any PowerPoint slides or additional materials for them to review. It is best to convert your lecture notes, PowerPoint or Keynote presentations to PDF format and upload the PDF version to avoid problems students may have being able to view the content.
You may take advantage of the GauchoCast streaming server and the Panopto Recorder software to prerecord your lecture and post it on GauchoSpace.

Use Zoom, the campus' desktop videoconferencing software, to deliver your lecture from a remote location, and/or allow remote students to attend lecture virtually (i.e. not in the classroom). With Zoom you can transmit live audio and video of yourself and your students, as well as use screen sharing to deliver on-screen presentation materials.
Note: Delivering a lecture via Zoom to your classroom requires coordination with Instructional Development staff and/or your TAs/students to ensure that the classroom Zoom session starts properly. Please complete the "Remote Lecture Request Form" and follow the instructions below.
