How will you communicate?
- Announcements: The best time to communicate your hyflex course plan is before it is needed. Spend a few minutes reviewing the plan with your students and post it to your Brightspace course learning management site (LMS). Reference this hyflex plan in your syllabus (also posted to your LMS) as part of the Emergency Preparation section (see syllabus template). Use the Announcement and email functions within your LMS, especially when communicating on confidential or protected data such as grades. See the Registrar’s website for details on Data Handling at Purdue.
- Purdue email is the official email service for anyone with affiliation to the university. It is the most consistent, and supported, method of exchanging email with your students. You may find it helpful to provide students with email guidelines specific to your course (e.g. Subject lines must include the course number; you will reply within 24 hours, etc.) However, exercise caution when dealing with confidential information. Should the need arise to make changes to your course plan, communicating within your Brightspace LMS is the safest option and one that provides students with a single point of contact for anything related to your course.
