Academic Continuity Plans

To support those on your campus who are working to develop alternate delivery modes using academic technologies available at no additional cost through Minnesota State (D2L Brightspace, Kaltura MediaSpace, Zoom, Office 365), we want to share some system office resources we are making available to you and your campuses.

Find your campus webpage and stay informed with updates from Minnesota State.


This page provides some quick how-to videos and step-by-step instructions to help you perform some common tasks as you explore alternate modes of delivery for your course.

Drop In Sessions

Staff from Minnesota State have scheduled Drop In Sessions (see event times below) via Zoom to assist any faculty who may need assistance using the available educational technologies. General schedule is 9:00-11:00 am and 1:00 – 3:00 pm

One-on-One Sessions

If you require one-on-one assistance, please reserve time with a staff member to work one-on-one via Zoom.
