Remote Learning


What you need to get started with transitioning to remote classes in response to coronavirus (COVID-19). We’re committed to ensuring that our students remain connected to courses and learning resources while participating remotely.

As you may already know, all Spring classes are now being taught via remote learning. This page offers an overview of some of the tools your professors will be using in your classes, and includes helpful information on topics such as learning accommodations and internet access.


How Students Can Prepare

  • Secure access to a device: While any device (including a smartphone) can be used for video conferencing, it is recommended that a laptop, tablet or desktop be used for papers and assignments
  • Internet connection
  • Stay in contact with your professors through email

Types of Online Instruction

Live Classes

Your class lecture may be conducted in real-time through Zoom while other class content, assignments, and examinations will be posted on Moodle.

 

On-Demand Classes

Your class lectures may be pre-recorded, along with other course content, and uploaded weekly to Moodle for your view outside of class time.

 Accessible Learning Tips and Resources

Equal access in the learning environment remains a top priority for Adelphi University. Online study creates the need for accommodations that may be different from those in traditional classes.

Bandwidth advice & suggestions

Bandwidth measures how much data can be sent over a specific internet connection in a given amount of time.

Recommended bandwidth for 3-5 devices using the web, basic streaming, and video conferencing is 30Mbps. Adding gaming or HD streaming bumps the recommended bandwidth to 41Mbps.

You can measure your bandwidth by using these calculators:

If you are under the recommended bandwidth, you may want to contact your service provider to increase your Mbps.

Information Security

If you are working remotely on your home computer (rather than on your Adelphi-issued laptop), you must be aware of the data risk for your information and applications you use. View tips on the following topics:
