Student Remote Learning
Last Updated: Friday, August 28, 2020
If it's not safe, feasible, or desirable to meet for class in a physical classroom, remote classes provide academic continuity. Instructors may ask you to complete assignments, watch lectures or otherwise participate in online discussions and chat rooms. Help is available for you to complete these tasks!
Communication should come directly from your instructors on what is available. To interact with your instructors remotely, try the NYU Zoom audio and video conferencing service.
For information and resources specific to the unique Fall 2020 semester, see the NYU Returns website’s Students section and the NYU IT Returns website.
Successful Study Habits
Set Up Your Computer For Remote Learning
Check to see if your computer meets the following requirements:
- Operating System: Windows 10 or macOS 10.14 (Mojave) or later
- RAM: 8GB
Students who do not have a computer, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tablets and cell phones can be useful as supplementary equipment.
Check Your Internet Connection
We encourage all students to check their internet connection to ensure they are able to use the NYU remote learning online services. You can test your internet connection by going to www.speedtest.net and click GO. 10-20 Mbps upload and download speeds are considered fast enough for typical online activities. If your speed isn't adequate, please contact your internet provider to troubleshoot.
If you are located in the U.S., many internet service providers and wireless carriers are offering free or discounted access during the COVID-19 outbreak. The sites linked on that page are sharing offers as they become available for the convenience of students. NYU does not endorse a particular product or service.
If you do not have the technology or services needed to learn and study remotely during this period, please contact the Office of Student Success at email@example.com and a team member will be in touch to explore options.
Remote Learning NYU Services
Services you access via NYUHome (or www.nyu.edu) will function with a stable internet connection and a valid NetID and password. Remember to approve your connection through Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), see below for set up details including new devices.
Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
MFA is required when logging into NYU's online services. Ensure you are able to access MFA via push notification, phone call, or Duo passcode. Below are MFA support resources. Please contact the NYU IT Service Desk with additional questions.
