Short emergency resources to help you get your course online

Pivot to Digital: A TRU Community Resource - safe for beginners

This is a VERY tight resource. Brief and to the point. Addresses assignments and assessment with clarity. This is an essential inclusion in anyone’s toolbox. No technical notes.

Virtual Labs - a big long list

Virtual labs, updated. This is a combination of various resources. So many lab options.
