In response to the transition to online instruction for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester, Augusta University and the University System of Georgia (USG) have launched multiple web resources to support student learning and engagement.

Online learning resources

The student resources section of Augusta University’s instructional continuity page houses online learning tips, as well as Augusta University-specific logins for systems like email, D2L, Box, WebEx and Microsoft Teams.

In addition, on March 26, the USG launched an online learning initiative called “KeepLearningUSG.”

The initiative seeks to support academic student success during the period of remote learning. The KeepLearningUSG website includes tips on staying organized; preparing for online learning; maintaining focus; and being an active, engaged learner in an online environment. The initiative includes a resources guide as well as resources for free internet service, for students and families who need it.

The USG’s “Learning Everywhere” site — another online learning initiative —has additional free resources like digital libraries, online coursework, a state of Georgia encyclopedia and more.

Augusta University is committed to assisting students during the transition from face-to-face instruction to virtual learning. Students who believe that online education will be challenging due to a lack of access to proper technologies can complete the technological needs survey. This survey, and other helpful resources, can be found on the Jags Care website.

Online support services

On April 3, Augusta University launched an online student support hub called “Virtual AU: Connect. Engage. Learn.” The microsite is a comprehensive resource for Augusta University students during the period of online instruction, and includes student life information, support resources, advising information and more. The site will be regularly updated with virtual activities and support services.

The Virtual AU page is a collaborative effort between the Division of Enrollment and Student Affairs and the Division for Instruction and Innovation.

To learn more about the resources available during online instruction, visit the Virtual AU microsite, the AU instructional continuity page and the KeepLearningUSG website. Students can also email the Division of Enrollment and Student Affairs at VP_ESA@augusta.edu.
