Remote Academia is a global Slack-based community that gives faculty and other education professionals a space to share resources and techniques for remote learning.
Remote Academia is a community that started in response to changes triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic. As many educational institutions moved classes and research online, the need to share resources and work together across institutions became clear, and the Remote Academia community provides a way for that work to occur.
It's a place for sharing ideas and news, discussing techniques and tools, and developing new workflows.
The workspace contains educators' recommendations of tools for course management, videoconferencing, and scheduling. You'll also find discussions of many topics, including changing grading policies, dealing with equity and access concerns, and administering exams.
If you're new to the Remote Academia community, a good first step is to join the Slack workspace linked above. There, you can introduce yourself to the current members, read past discussions, and start participating in sharing ideas.
Shared channels on Slack are a way to connect two workspaces. The Remote Academia shared channel can be added to any existing Slack workspace, such as one used by your institution or department. The channel is a microcosm of the Remote Academia workspace: discussions, ideas, and best practices.
