In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, American Councils suspended all AC Study & Research Abroad overseas programs for Summer 2020. While our overseas programs will not be running as planned this summer, American Councils is pleased to offer the Peace and Security in the South Caucasus program (PSSC) online.

I created this handout to help my colleagues switch to remote learning without having to retrain or re-invent the wheel.
Given that online learning is its own field and requires a particular skillset that many just don't have time to acquire on such short notice, the suggestions I include ask that you lean on technologies you already know how to use and feel comfortable using.
Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.

I have been using PowerPoint with voice-over for my online classes for several years, in both Mac and Windows format. While not perfect, it works quite well. Just remember not to backtrack to a previous slide while you are recording your lecture. Move forward, one slide at a time. Good luck!
This will help as a starter at least for the transition to online during the COVID-19 upheaval.
