ATG has provided how-to guides for using Zoom (note that Zoom tutorial workshops are listed at the bottom of this page, some of which have been scheduled for over Spring Break to assist with transitioning courses).
Canvas course websites contain a built-in Zoom function through which all members of your course will be able to connect (see instructions here); this is strongly recommended for course-related Zoom sessions.
Zoom meetings can also be initiated through the Harvard Zoom portal: https://harvard.zoom.us/
Zoom has capabilities for live captioning during meetings and for adding captioning to recordings.

Compensation should continue to be charged to awards whether individuals can or cannot contribute to the project. This may not continue indefinitely but for both NIH and NSF it is applicable for up to 30 days, consistent with the university’s current published policy. For now assume that it is any 30 days, per individual, when work cannot be performed (please read the FAQs).
All cancelled travel and related costs may be charged to sponsored awards.
Documentation is critical, be sure to identify COVID-19 related incremental costs and salary unrelated to effort, and maintain that documentation.
