As reflected in the recent comments of our President, Freed-Hardeman University (FHU) has a deep appreciation for the impact that the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is having on the FHU family, the Henderson-Chester County Community, and our nation. In response to this global health crisis, Freed-Hardeman has requested that faculty migrate the majority of their traditional courses to a digital learning environment. In support of this request, the Center for Instructional Innovation (CII) has developed the Rapid Response Plan to assist faculty and students in this transition.

This website contains various resources that will help faculty plan, develop, and administer distance learning courses. These resources include video tutorials and user guides that focus on the delivery of course content and learning activities in the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS). In addition, an upcoming schedule of faculty training and workshops is provided. Finally, a list of support options has been published that provide faculty support, both internally and externally. 

The website also offers resources for students that will help them be successful as distant learners. This includes Canvas video tutorials and user guides. It also provides information regarding student services and how these may be accessed remotely. These resources have been designed to help students transition to a distance learning environment.
