As you begin to teach your course remotely, consider what you already do in your course. You will not be able to recreate your classroom, so don't expect that you can. However, think about your priorities and ways to meet your learning objectives online.
Communicate with students.
One of the most important things you can do when teaching remotely is stay in close contact with you students. Clearly communicate any changes you make to your syllabus, policies, assignments, due dates, etc. They too are stressed by the disruption. Make your expectations clear and transparent.

Distribute course materials and readings
One of the most important things you can do for students to ensure course continuity is to post course material on Brightspace.
There are a number of ways you can deliver lectures remotely, either synchronously or asynchronously.
Run lab activities
Although not all labs can be conducted remotely, there are some alternatives you can consider.
Foster collaboration among students
Another basic function you will want to be able to do is to collect student work. Collecting it in Brightspace is much more efficient than having student email assignments to you individually.
