Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Wed, 2020-04-01 02:03

Sascha Segan, PC Week

Ookla analyzed internet performance data in China, Italy, and the US over the past several weeks. In Hubei, China, the population was locked down on Jan. 22-23, but internet speeds began to decline the week of Jan. 13. In Italy, lockdowns started on March 9, and Ookla saw notable speed declines in both the province of Lombardy and in Italy as a whole that week.

The Human Element in Online Learning

Larry DeBrock, Norma Scagnoli and Fataneh Taghaboni-Dutta, Inside Higher Ed
As colleges pivot quickly toward online learning, here’s the secret most educators and students don’t yet know: done right, online education can be surprisingly intimate. That student who’s sitting far enough away in the lecture hall that you can’t quite read her expression amid the proverbial sea of faces? When you call on her in a live Zoom session, she pops up right in front of you, one on one, looking you straight in the eye. There is no back seat in online education — every student is in the front row.

Summit is the most powerful supercomputer on Earth by a wide margin, and it’s also the third most energy-efficient. Summit has run simulations on more than 8,000 compounds, searching for molecules that could inactivate the virus. Early results from Summit have identified 77 compounds that could bind to the Spike protein, preventing it from binding to human cells.

Coronavirus could rattle colleges’ international enrollment strategies

Jeremy Bauer-Wolf, Education Dive

As concerns about the novel coronavirus mounted in the U.S., colleges canceled face-to-face classes and turned to online instruction in quick succession. Some institutions ordered residence halls to be vacated, raising questions about what would happen to students who couldn’t leave campus so easily. A chunk of this population is international students, who account for a little more than 5% of the country’s total higher education enrollment. As the disease spreads globally, officials are scrambling to help current students and stem recruitment losses.

Online Education Becomes Teacher’s Pet In COVID-19 Crisis

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Mon, 2020-03-30 02:10

Mergermarket

Both K-12 and higher education institutions have been closing their doors to prevent the spread of the virus. School districts around the country have announced short-term closures, but the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said more lengthy closures might be required, perhaps eight weeks or longer, to be effective. Even before the crisis, postsecondary schools were adopting online course offerings and textbooks were being offered online to college students. The virus will ensure that this trend will only accelerate and gain traction with school-age children.

  So, your home is your new office. Perhaps you noticed the WiFi is a bit sluggish compared to your prior office? It may be worth checking out your signal and doing a couple of tweaks. Obviously, there will be factors that are out of your control, but trying lots of different things to improve your Wi-Fi speeds should give you some ammunition to go back to your broadband provider with. Most of the tips we offer are free, however some will cost you a little money, so perhaps try them out last.   https://www.techworld.com/picture-gallery/developers/reasons-your-wi-fi-speed-stinks-how-boost-wi-fi-signal-3633986/ Share on Facebook var button = document.getElementById('facebook_share_link_65193') || document.getElementById('facebook_share_icon_65193') || document.getElementById('facebook_share_both_65193') || document.getElementById('facebook_share_button_65193'); if (button) { button.onclick = function(e) { var url = this.href.replace(/share\.php/, 'sharer.php'); window.open(url,'sharer','toolbar=0,status=0,width=626,height=436'); return false; } if (button.id === 'facebook_share_button_65193') { button.onmouseover = function(){ this.style.color='#fff'; this.style.borderColor = '#295582'; this.style.backgroundColor = '#3b5998'; } button.onmouseout = function(){ this.style.color = '#3b5998'; this.style.borderColor = '#d8dfea'; this.style.backgroundColor = '#fff'; } } }

This is a moment that exposes the many inequities in our society — from the broadband and computers needed for distance education to the supportive environments needed to focus on learning. For the millions of children who are homeless, food insecure, without health care, school is often the one place where they feel safe and where they are taken care of.

Grand Valley faculty, students navigate shift to online learning

D’Angelo Starks, The Grand Haven Tribune

“The quick time period is the thing that’s vexing most of us,” said Eric Harvey, a professor in GVSU’s multimedia journalism department. “They gave us basically Thursday through Monday as a period to see what we could do to port our classes completely online. “People might think it’s a simple matter of porting the classroom into the digital world and pushing a couple buttons and then everything is essentially the same,” he said. “But it’s a lot more challenging than that, especially for professors who rely on discussion. That’s one thing that’s hard to replicate in the digital relevance.” The initial reaction from students was excitement, but the more time to consider the information the more they realized the potential downfalls of the arrangement.

Chromebooks are already in wide use at many schools in SUHSD, making a transition to distance learning not too different from the norm.  Though it’s a change of pace, the transition isn’t daunting; many classes already use Google Chromebook laptops and/or the Google Classroom platform under regular circumstances. Teachers like SUHSD 2019 Teacher of the Year Maggie Power use the Remind app, made for teacher-to-student communication on any device without disclosing personal information, to stay in touch as well.

Working from home: Cybersecurity tips for remote workers

Steve Ranger, ZD Net

With the rapid increase in remote working in mind, European cybersecurity agency ENISA has set out a series of recommendations for companies moving to teleworking as a result of COVID-19. ENISA said it had already seen an increase in coronavirus-related phishing attacks. The agency recommends, as far as possible, that workers try to not mix work and leisure activities on the same device and be particularly careful with any mails referencing the coronavirus. “Attackers are exploiting the situation, so look out for phishing emails and scams,” ENISA said.

With most employees working from home amid today’s COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, enterprise VPN servers have now become paramount to a company’s backbone, and their security and availability must be the focus going forward for IT teams. “It will be very important [that] the VPN service is patched and up-to-date because there will be way more scrutiny (scanning) against these services,” said Guy Bruneau, an ISC SANS instructor in a post last week. Bruneau’s warning is just one of the many cybersecurity industry alerts published over the past few days on the topic of VPN security.

Higher Ed’s COVID-19 Response Through a Sociological Lens

As a sociologist, I’m interested in the organizational, cultural, and structural conditions that enable or impede colleges and universities from mounting an effective response to COVID-19. I wonder about the conditions that will enable some institutions to efficiently and effectively accomplish the rapid transition from residential to remote learning? How COVID-19 will re-order the existing power relationships and status hierarchies within colleges and universities will be fascinating to observe. What will COVID-19 mean for marginalized higher ed populations such as adjunct faculty?

Ed Dept green-lights virtual site visits for accreditors due to coronavirus

Hallie Busta, Education Dive
The U.S. Department of Education has expanded guidance issued to accreditors earlier this month about the level of flexibility they can offer colleges that are moving classes online due to the novel coronavirus. In a memo this week, the department said accreditors could conduct site visits virtually at their discretion, though they would be expected to visit in-person at a later date. Virtual visits must be interactive, such as through phone and video calls, “rather than solely document reviews or exchanges of emails,” the guidance explains. The guidance comes as at least one accreditor said it plans to temporarily take most site visits remote and as others consider the option for some schools.

Moody’s lowers higher ed outlook to negative amid coronavirus crisis

Moody’s Investors Service downgraded its outlook for the higher education sector from stable to negative, predicting widespread instability as a result of the new coronavirus. Colleges will face “unprecedented enrollment uncertainty” headed into the next fiscal year as the virus and the disease it causes, COVID-19, throws the country into economic turmoil, the credit rating agency wrote in an analysis released Wednesday. Institutions’ budgets will immediately be stressed as they are forced to respond to outbreaks of the virus, and those with weak finances will likely have more trouble adapting to trying conditions in the future.
