(Last updated March 18, 2022.)

This site was created in April 2020 to support online learning during the pandemic. It continues to offer resources for the technology and tools supported by IMSS for remote and in-person instruction.


Spring Term 2022:

As announced on March 18, 2022, the Institute will return fully to in-person instruction for the spring term. Due to health risks due to travel over spring break, instructors have the discretion to conduct the first week of instruction (March 28 - April 1, 2022) remotely via Zoom. All classes are to resume in-person on Monday, April 4, 2022.
