Distance Education – Student Hub

During unsettled times like the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important for our School of Graduate Education MBS students at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine to continue learning — as seamlessly as possible.

Immediate recommendations

  1. Use your Canvas course as the primary “home base” for your course. The Canvas Student Guide contains some helpful information, if needed.
  2. Communicate with your instructors by email, Canvas course discussions/chat, or requesting a Zoom Q&A session with your instructor.
  3. This online and asynchronous form of instruction means it’s important that you are comfortable with all educational technology applications:
  • Canvas is the LMS and is the “home base” for each course.
  • Panopto is used to record lectures/videos. 
  • Proctorio is used to proctor all exams and quizzes.
  • Zoom is used for synchronous Q&A and virtual meetings.
