How to Look Good on Video Calls

Sat, 2020-05-02 02:03

Chandra Steele, PC Magazine

Everybody was supposed to be famous for 15 minutes in the future, but now you’re appearing on video 15 times a day and you want some anonymity. That’s not going to be the case for a while as social distancing continues, so you might as well make the best of your time in front of the camera. Whether you’re in Zoom meetings with colleagues or having virtual cocktail parties with friends, follow these steps so you can spend more time focusing on others and not anxiously checking how you look in the corner of the screen.

Librarian Integrated Workflows to Enhance Course Design & Development

Fri, 2020-05-01 02:05

Erin Brothen, etal;  Capella University
As the modes of course development in universities shift to be more team-based, librarians are now contributing core components of course development operations. This article outlines the ways that librarians at Capella University have been integrated systematically into course development. Adding librarians to specific points throughout the course development process has streamlined processes, saved materials costs, and better aligned research skills instruction with student needs. This systematic integration method is novel, compared to traditional models that pair librarians with individual faculty or offer ad hoc, or small pilot project assistance.

What’s the government done to relieve student loan borrowers of their burden during the corona crisis?

Fri, 2020-05-01 02:03

Caitlin Brandt, Louise Sheiner, and Kadija Yilla, Brookings Institution

Forty-two million Americans, or one in every eight, have student loans, and they owe a total of $1.6 trillion, the second largest pool of consumer credit after mortgages. According to the Federal Reserve, 20 percent of adult borrowers who borrowed for their own educations were behind on their payments in 2018. Of those who are paying their loans, typical monthly payments are between $200 and $299. With unemployment soaring due to the coronavirus pandemic, some people may not be able to make their monthly loan payments. What has the government done to relieve the burden of student loans?

Determining Carnegie Units: Student Engagement in Online Courses Without a Residential Equivalent

Thu, 2020-04-30 02:10

Katherine M. Adler, OJDLA

Carnegie Units (CU) quantify the time spent by students in and out of class in terms of content engagement. The rule states that for every one hour spent in a face-to-face setting, students spend an additional two hours of study time or engagement with the material). For colleges offering both online and residential courses with the same content, equating the time online students spend with course content is not difficult – the Registrar aligns online courses with their residentially offered matches. However, what does a college do when 100% of its courses are offered online, with no onsite match? What follows is a discussion of how one college ensured and quantified engagement in online courses.

7 mental health resources to help college students during the coronavirus pandemic

Thu, 2020-04-30 02:03

LAURA ASCIONE, eCampus News
The coronavirus has closed campuses across the globe, and many students may need help regulating their mental health and dealing with anxiety. Colleges and universities across the globe have closed campuses and moved instruction online in an attempt to stop community spread of the novel coronavirus. Many students find themselves back home with family, quarantining while their campuses remain physically shut down. Others may be out of work and worrying about finances on top of attending online classes. Still others are international students who might not be able to return home. According to researchers at the University of California, Irvine, many people experience psychological distress resulting from repeated media exposure to the crisis.

Educators can adjust online classes to fit learning styles

Wed, 2020-04-29 02:05

Shawna De La Rosa, Education Dive

Educators must balance many learning preferences as students adjust to online learning, which will be a good fit for some and difficult for others, District Administration reports. Some students will struggle with change and others will have a hard time dealing with isolation.  A paper by the University of Illinois Springfield lays out four styles of learners and how educators can adapt online curriculum accordingly. The visual/verbal learner, for example, does best when information is presented through visual aids, textbooks and class notes. They prefer to study in quiet environments, and the online environment is particularly well-suited to them.

What if immunity to covid-19 doesn’t last?

Wed, 2020-04-29 02:03

Antonio Regalad, MIT Technology Review

Researchers say people can catch mild, cold-causing coronaviruses twice in the same year. For the coronaviruses “immunity seems to wane quickly,” says Jeffrey Shaman, who carried out the research with Marta Galanti, a postdoctoral researcher. The big question is what this fizzling, short-lived resistance to common cold viruses means for covid-19. Is there a chance the disease will turn into a killer version of the common cold, constantly out there, infecting 10% or 20% of the population each year, but also continuing to kill one in a hundred? If so, it would amount to a plague capable of shaving the current rate of world population growth by a tenth.

More Cause for Concern About Fall Enrollment

Tue, 2020-04-28 13:09

Rick Seltzer, Inside Higher Ed

A significant number of students who’ve paid deposits promising to attend certain campuses will opt against enrolling because of the coronavirus pandemic. About 12 percent of such students who have already made deposits no longer plan to attend a four-year college full-time, according to the polling. The findings are being shared today by the consulting firm Art & Science Group, which polled 1,171 high school seniors from April 21-24. Admissions officers always expect some students who told a college they planned to attend not to enroll.  But the new data specifically about students who have already deposited is particularly concerning coming at this point in this particular year, said Nanci Tessier, senior vice president at Art & Science.

Insights on Adapting to a Virtual Learning Environment from the President of Southern New Hampshire University

Tue, 2020-04-28 02:10

Harvard Business Review

Honestly, online education was not as good ten years ago as it is today. That makes sense. But now we have robust tools and technologies and a lot of years of experience, and the best online programs are as good as or better than their traditional face-to-face counterparts. Our students typically work, have families, and are trying to make education fit into their busy lives. They readily embrace online learning because it is convenient, and then they discover that it is powerful and effective and they are won over. Around 95% of our graduates say they were “satisfied” or “very satisfied” with their experience and would recommend our programs to friends and co-workers. As we live our lives increasingly in virtual spaces, this challenge has lessened across the board.

Coursera Launches CourseMatch, A New Tool In Its Coronavirus Response Initiative

Tue, 2020-04-28 02:02

Michael T. Nietzel, Forbes
Coursera, the online learning platform and one of the pioneers of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCS), announced today that it was launching CourseMatch, a machine learning solution that will automatically match Coursera courses to on-campus courses at colleges and universities across the globe. Coursera has activated more than 2,600 programs for colleges and universities around the world. But with the large demand came a problem – as more universities went live with Coursera offerings, they needed a solution that would identify courses on Coursera that most closely matched the courses in their own on-campus catalogues.

Remotely Hands-On: Teaching lab sciences and the fine arts during COVID-19

Mon, 2020-04-27 02:04

Colleen Flaherty, Inside Higher Ed

Ed tech has its skeptics, and there are certainly some things it can’t teach. Gouvea’s colleague at Tufts, Lauren Crowe, a lecturer in biology, for one, said remote instruction prevents her from teaching her students essential fine motor skills, like using a micropipette. Labster brings its own data to that fight, including an article in Nature finding a twofold improvement in students’ learning outcomes after using gamified simulations. To Gouvea’s point about struggle, Labster’s virtual guides sometimes allow students to fail at first. “There are many ways you can do this, and each teacher has their own preferences, like blended learning and teachers providing courses as homework,” Bodekaer said.

When The Pandemic Is Over, Will U.S. Higher Education Be Ready To Get People Back To Work?

Mon, 2020-04-27 02:02

Paul LeBlanc, SNHU and Forbes

When the time comes, is American higher education ready to do its part in quickly getting people back into the workforce? For this economic crisis, America needs a higher education industry that is quickly responsive to workforce needs, that can get people retooled in two and four months, not years, that is affordable, and that better accommodates the working adults and under-served populations too often neglected by four-year colleges and universities.

What Happens If Campuses Can’t Reopen in the Fall?

Jeffrey R. Young with Bryan Alexander, EdSurge

It’s possible that we’re going to be under a straight lockdown for the next year. .. Or it’s quite possible we will have waves of pandemic. So it may be that by the end of May or early June, we’ll get the ‘all clear’ [and we go back]. And then come October, maybe winter, we get another outbreak—either because the virus has mutated or because it has shifted through another population or for some reason that we don’t fully understand—and then we have to go back under quarantine again.

One in five high school students responding to a recent survey said they will likely not attend college next year because of the coronavirus. A slightly smaller share said the situation may cause them to attend a different college than they planned. The survey, conducted by consulting firm SimpsonScarborough, looks at how the pandemic is influencing the college plans of high school seniors and college students. Already, colleges have moved their spring recruitment efforts online, and they expect more competition than usual to lock down their fall enrollment.

College of Charleston students adjusting to online learning

College of Charleston
After a few weeks of e-learning, College of Charleston students are adjusting to their new virtual classrooms, embracing the change and finding new ways to keep a schedule during this strange time of social distancing. For Eileen Vedder, a junior from Virginia Beach, Virginia, the adjustment to e-learning has been easier than she originally thought. She credits her successful transition to her three years of college combined with having taken online courses prior to the pandemic. Vedder has one class that meets synchronously (in real time) each week through Zoom, while two others use virtual classroom (recorded, self-paced) methods through the College’s online learning management system OAKS, including the VoiceThread feature, which makes an online experience collaborative.
