ONLINE LEARNING & ACCESS
PICTURE PERFECT: If you’re missing campus, we’ve created some campus-inspired and spirit-themed virtual backgrounds for Zoom to help you feel connected with other Roadrunners while taking courses or working remotely.
FIND TOOLS TO SUCCEED: Telecommuting for work has been a first-time experience for many ’Runners, so Human Resources is providing the UTSA Learning Zone. Available to all student employees, the platform has a set of self-paced courses geared toward working remotely, including using Microsoft Teams, overcoming virtual challenges, managing stress and being productive in your personal life.
