Student Remote Learning (Student Support)
The University Learning Center (ULC) has extended remote hours to accommodate students in different time zones. The ULC has been partnering with specific courses, offering support according to where students are in the syllabus. Please reach out to the ULC team if you would like to share materials with them so that they can anticipate students’ questions.

Making Zoom secure
To preserve security and academic integrity while using Zoom, NYU IT recommends not to share meeting and class session links on a publicly available website and/or with unintended participants. Please see the NYU NYU IT documentation on making Zoom secure and the FAS Ed Tech guide. There have been reports of unprofessional behavior by registered students in the course. Faculty should require students to access the Zoom link from within the NYU Classes site (this will ensure that they are logged on and identified). Dr. Ben Maddox, NYU’s Chief Instructional Technology Officer, recommends that faculty make explicit guidelines such as:
Articulating what behaviors and materials are not acceptable
Letting them know that students will be muted or removed from the session for disruptive behavior. Faculty can also message individual students or turn off all video and talk to the students about appropriate behavior.
- Faculty can also reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to report unacceptable behavior and/or to ask any related questions.
- Audio only recording: An audio only recording can be isolated and Zoom does it automatically. If you press "Record to Cloud" once the meeting starts, it saves three files, including the audio only file.
- Only someone with the “host” role can download a recording
- The IT Division has created a page with information to address a number of questions, including Zoombombing: www.nyu.edu/it/zoom/security. Any deans or faculty members with questions can send them to email@example.com.
Librarian for Middle Eastern, Islamic Studies, and Jewish Studies
*Currently, there is no access to physical collections at Bobst or Dibner Libraries; this includes stacks/Main Collection, Course Reserves, Special Collections, etc. Delivery services (i.e., scanning and paging of onsite materials) have been suspended, as have requests for physical materials via E-ZBorrow and Interlibrary Loan (ILL). The library is not able to offer digitization services at this time, although they are happy to help find alternatives (e.g., e-books, scans of a chapter/article via ILL, or our streaming media/audio services).
Instructions on how to find and link library e-resources in NYU Classes
HERE ARE SOME ALTERNATIVES TO PHYSICAL MATERIALS:
- Check the catalog, BobCat, to see if the library has an ebook copy.
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org or use the suggest a purchase form to request e-books, streaming media, etc.
- Request a scan of a chapter or article using Interlibrary Loan (ILL). (Unfortunately, the library can't guarantee normal delivery times since many partner libraries are closed or reducing services.)
- If you have a physical copy of a course reading, consider scanning it with your phone to share with your students. Here is a good article that reviews some of the mobile scanning apps on the market.
- Check out the library's vast collection of streaming media, which is searchable in BobCat and can also be found in our many video databases. FYI, Kanopy is one of our bigger streaming sources.
