The transition to online teaching has prompted many teachers to learn new methods for delivering lessons to their students from home offices with limited resources. The inability to write or draw on a chalkboard can make it harder to explain difficult concepts to students from a distance. Luckily some simple solutions can be implemented to increase the effectiveness of your online lessons and increase student success.
With schools closing across the nation due to COVID-19, millions of students are staying at home and will be required to attend classes online indefinitely. Luckily, there are easy ways to transition from face-to-face to online teaching with modern technology like Zoom, which is supported by many institutions, and Squarecap, which has granted free access for all new students until July 1st.
With the spread of COVID-19 causing schools to cancel in-person classes for the semester, Squarecap is committed to helping both teachers and students achieve success and has decided to make our platform available free-of-charge for any classes transitioning to online learning that need to adopt our tool mid-semester.

There are many online teaching tools available to conduct your classes, but only a few for engaging and interacting with the students. Squarecap is a valuable tool for taking attendance, asking questions and allowing students to post their questions, all online. Here are a few points to consider as you are making necessary preparations for this change:
Squarecap supports integration with every major LMS with single sign-on, roster syncing, and automatic grade upload functionality.
