As the College continues to prepare for emerging contingencies related to COVID-19, we have decided to move forward with a two-week test of our online capacity. All courses in the Spring 2020 semester will begin to be taught online effective Monday, March 16, 2020. Your faculty members will be contacting you with information about how to complete your assignments using Moodle during the two-week period that begins on March 16.
MCNY has not had any reported positive cases of COVID-19. Through this test, we seek to help keep our community safe and support students in the successful completion of the Spring semester as we continue to navigate uncertainty in the days ahead.
As of now, the two-week online initiative is scheduled to end on Sunday, March 28. It may be extended as circumstances require; we will update you the week of March 23. We will also survey all students during that week to gain insight into your experiences with online courses and to learn of any support needs you identify. If you would like assistance in using Moodle, our Learning Management System, please contact the Office of E-Learning at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In conjunction with moving courses online, we will also be testing our ability to provide students with remote academic and student support services. Instructions follow below for Remote Access to Registration, Advising, Library, Learning Enhancement (Tutoring/Mentoring) and Career Development services.

Learning Enhancement Center & Tutoring/Mentoring:
The Learning Enhancement Center (LEC) will continue to provide tutoring and mentoring services; all sessions will be conducted remotely. Remote tutoring sessions involve a mixture of phone, email, audio/video chat with Zoom, and document sharing with Office 365. When you schedule remote sessions, specialists will work with you to meet their technical as well as academic needs.
To schedule a remote session, email LEC@mcny.edu, call 212-343-1234 x 2438, or calling a specialist’s extension. Hours and contact information for LEC Staff are available on the LEC Moodle Shell (link below), along with a short introductory video to remote tutoring, and the LEC’s Writing and Math Toolkit resources. Please schedule remote sessions in advance, as on-demand sessions may fill up quickly.
