The extraordinary circumstances surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic have impacted all aspects of campus operations at Illinois State University. The move away from face-to-face instruction and to alternative delivery of classes will begin Monday, March 23, and will continue through the remainder of the spring semester and finals week.

Navigating the transition in teaching and learning during this time of global stress and uncertainty can be daunting for everyone. Illinois State is committed to helping students successfully complete this semester and their college education. To that end, Illinois State has committed a great amount of time, talent, and technology to support the move to online and alternative class delivery.

Illinois State’s Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology (CTLT) has online resources to provide an overview of teaching technology and answer questions that students, faculty, and staff may have during this transition time.

The Technology Support Center also has information on internet connectivity, VPN, Zoom web conferencing, ReggieNet, Office 365, and other technology resources.

Students needing technology to fully take part in online classes can contact the Technology Support Center at or (309) 438-4357. Find more resources here.
