Keep Learning (Remote Instruction)

Under unusual circumstances, it may be critical for our faculty and students to continue courses in a very different manner than they began. In such circumstances, face-to-face classes are being offered via remote instruction. Our learning management system, Canvas, will be the primary platform used for classes. Your instructor may choose to hold synchronous (real-time, live) class sessions, or may post content for you to read, watch and complete asynchronously (on your time).

Remote Instruction Q&A

You should continue checking your King email daily. Remember to also regularly check-in on your Canvas course for updates and announcements.

Canvas is the primary platform used to help you stay current in your coursework. Log in to my.king.edu, click on the red/white Canvas icon at the top right and then use your King credentials to log in. Click here for a Canvas Help site: https://www.king.edu/current-students/canvas-help/

The continuation of instruction is for your instructor to decide. If instructors decide to conduct live video conferencing class sessions, these will be held at your scheduled class time. If your instructors decide to post content and assignments on Canvas, they will stipulate due dates and expectations for completion.

  • No matter the mode of delivery, as a Christian academic community, we should all seek to engage our academic work with honor and integrity. Academic dishonesty of any type will not be tolerated and will be addressed according to our policy. Academic dishonesty includes any attempt to obtain credit for academic work through fraudulent, deceptive, or dishonest means. It is especially important that you not make assumptions regarding your instructor’s expectations regarding how assignments and tests should be completed.  For example, unless explicitly stated, do not assume, that tests are open book or that collaboration with other students is appropriate. If in doubt, ASK before you engage in any behavior that could be considered academic dishonesty.
  • The full Academic Dishonesty Policy can be found on pages 6-7 in the King University Student Handbook (https://www.king.edu/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/student-handbook.pdf)
