We have gathered a list of resources for you as we move to connecting and teaching online. We are still vetting these, so please keep checking back, and let us know what you think! To make a submission, please contact NYSATA Vice President Donnnalyn Shuster at [email protected].

Communication Forums

  • Discord—Somewhat challenging to set up. YouTube tutorials here. An incredible free option for group communication, sending out updates, and keeping students accountable all in one place.
  • Facebook Groups—Not every student is going to have a facebook account, so not ideal, but very user friendly to set up and use. No phone notifications for announcement and messages like with Discord and Slack.
