Technology

Staying together, even while we are apart.

Students, faculty and parents will need to lean heavily on technology to bridge the gap between school and home. To help create a world-class distance learning program for our students, we have doubled-down on familiar platforms like Google and Sundial, and invested in new ones like Zoom and Loom. We understand that having to learn even one new tool, especially right now, may seem overwhelming. To keep things simple and consistent, we are asking students and teachers to use these tools, and only these tools, to connect with each other.





Google

Google remains our preferred method of communication when it comes to email, chat, and calendar. Not much change here.

Sundial

Sundial is the backbone of our distance learning program. It's where you can find class pages and assignments, discussion boards, grades and comments, and tutorials. Who knew it could do so much?

Zoom

Teachers and advisors will use Zoom to host live video events like office hours and extra help sessions, and maybe even school meeting from time-to-time. Get used to staring at yourself. 

Loom

Loom allows you to record video with your computer's camera, capture your screen, or combine the two — all with audio. Pretty handy during a pandemic, wouldn't you say?
