From a technology perspective, working remotely can be quite similar to working in the office. We recommend you prepare in advance in order to make sure these options work for you before you actually need them. It is a good idea to go ahead and test your access to online resources at home before the need arises. If you need support, please submit an IT Help Desk ticket.
Consider the equipment you may need, including a computer, display, docking station, mouse, keyboard, and work area. Tablets and cell phones can be useful but not adequate standalone equipment for working remotely.
In most situations, College employees should be able to access College resources to perform your job duties. However, some applications will require additional access.
Note: When you are connected to VPN, your web access is monitored and filtered just as it would be on campus.
The main differences between working in the office and teleworking may relate to how you and your colleagues communicate and collaborate. These tools connect you remotely so your work can continue uninterrupted.
The College uses Blackboard to deliver classes and class content. If you do not currently teach online, Blackboard will allow you to temporarily take your teaching or learning online. Please contact the Distance Education Department if you require any assistance.
All remote workers should use a personal cell, landline, or College issued cell phone for work related calls.
