Disaster Planning: Maintaining Academic Programs During a Pandemic

Thursday, October 25 | 9:10AM–10:00AM | Ballroom 6B
Session Type: Professional Development
Many campuses are exploring how information technologies might play a critical role, when disaster strikes, in ensuring the continuity of their most essential business, educating students. This panel will explore how Web-based services can be used to minimize the impact on instruction of a significant shutdown of the physical campus. Not all disasters have the same uniform impact; this panel will emphasize how to plan the process, from course preparation to delivery, for pandemics like Avian Flu.
