Moving to Remote Work
Like many educational institutions across the Bay Area, Cañada College, College of San Mateo and Skyline College are moving many functions of the district online, including much of the work of classified professionals.
Working remotely can require skills and resources that are less familiar. We may need to find alternate online meeting spaces like Zoom, share files using Dropbox, or use different modes of access for tools we might use every day like Banner. This virtual hub is designed to help with our immediate transition to remote work as well as provide key supports to help us do the best we can while we’re away from our desk.
