One recommendation to accommodate some of your students who may have Internet connectivity issues: Record a lecture to Zoom Cloud, which generates an auto-transcription. You can then take that file, edit the text so that it’s readable (and correct spelling issues with technical, field-specific terminology) and distribute to your students as lecture notes. If you teach from slides, you can also distribute the slide deck to accompany the notes. This will require far less resources from your students, from a broadband standpoint, than streaming a video or attending a synchronous session. Of course, you can post the lecture video as well for those who have a solid connection and even hold synchronous class sessions or Q&As in tandem.
