Surveying students about technology access and other barriers

Students may be facing barriers to engaging with remote coursework, including limited internet access, access to devices, differing time zones, and changing family responsibilities. 

To determine your students' access and the best strategies for your course, consider a brief student survey. As this can entail collecting sensitive information, please be sure to use a secure Penn-approved platform such as Canvas. You can find a sample survey on Canvas (please enroll in the course to preview it). This survey can be imported into your Canvas course and adjusted to suit your class.

Also consider ways to check in with students throughout the semester to evaluate strategies and in case students’ situations change.
