The need for distance learning is quickly becoming a reality for millions of students as schools around the world close temporarily due to the coronavirus. Meeting the challenges of teaching and learning remotely requires being flexible, having vision, and thinking creatively about how best to support students.

In the webinar, they outline integrations with various Learning Management Systems, such as Google Classroom and Canvas, providing suggestions for both synchronous and asynchronous approaches to online learning.
