Marguerite Dennis, University World News

International students and their families will be reluctant to go or send their children abroad given the uncertainty of the future of the second wave or next outbreak of the virus in the fall 2020. Studyportals, the Dutch-based global study choice platform, released survey results that revealed 83% of respondents believe their future travel plans will be restricted and 63% believe their parents’ savings will decrease because of the virus. More than one million international students who were enrolled in the United States in the spring semester have returned to their home countries. It is unknown how many will return to the United States for the fall semester.

UConn President Tom Katsouleas is urging faculty to prepare for the possibility of online classes this fall. “Factors contributing to that decision will include the progress on slowing COVID-19, guidance from public health experts, decisions and guidance from federal and state government and the availability of testing, among others,” Katsouleas said. The decision to transition all face-to-face classes for the fall 2020 semester will be made with the approval of the Board of Trustees and communicated before June 30.

No campus lectures and shut student bars: UK universities’ £1bn struggle to move online

Dave Batty and Rachel Hall, the Guardian

Only around 20 UK universities are in a good position to provide a range of high-quality online courses by the start of the new academic year in September, according to Prof Sir Tim O’Shea, the former vice-chancellor of Edinburgh University. Some of the country’s top-ranked Russell Group institutions, including Oxford and Cambridge, were not in that category, he added. The warning comes as the sector seeks to expand online education in a bid to offset huge losses from tens of thousands of international students cancelling their studies due to Covid-19.

Will this semester forever alter college? No, but some virtual tools will stick around

Jon Marcus, Hechinger Report

Online higher education “is a thin diet for the typical 18-year-old,” said Richard Garrett, chief research officer at Eduventures. “But today’s 18-year-olds are tomorrow’s 28-year-olds with families and jobs, who then realize that online can be useful.” Already, more than half of American adults who expect to need more education or training after this pandemic say they would do it online, according to a survey of 1,000 people by the Strada Education Network, which advocates for connections between education and work.

Julia Boorstin, CNBC

The Coursera Workforce Recovery Initiative is teaming up with state governments in the U.S. and the leadership of countries around the world to offer 3,800 courses at no cost from top universities and corporations, including Amazon and Google. The free courses, which usually cost $399 a year, are focused on skills and professional certifications that will help out-of-work individuals find new jobs in high-demand sectors. Coursera has added 10 million users in the past month as online education has surged, especially courses in data science, computer science, business and health care.

Is this competency-based learning’s big moment?

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Thu, 2020-05-07 02:05

Matt Zalaznick, University Business

Colleges and universities, of course, cannot overhaul their curriculum overnight. But campus leaders can begin laying the groundwork as they tackle past the immediate concerns of moving online, and supporting the mental health and other needs of staff and students, Price says. Campus leaders should consider creating an independent business unit to explore a move to competency-based learning, Price says. Ths team should be free and willing to examine any and all alternatives to an institution’s longstanding curriculum, residential programs and faculty structure, Price says.

Chris Carlson, Syracuse

Syracuse University announced that it will offer members of its Class of 2020 a scholarship that will cover half of tuition for SU graduate school programs, a nod to the challenges that the group has faced during its time at the school and a potentially unfavorable job market when they graduate. The school is calling the scholarship program the “2020 Forever Orange Scholarship” and said that it will cover half of tuition for graduating seniors that enroll full-time in graduate degree or certificate programs at Syracuse.

What’s Next: Colleges take mental healthcare online, but barriers remain|

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Wed, 2020-05-06 02:10

Natalie Schwartz, Education Dive

Many telemedicine laws limit therapists to working with clients who live in the state, preventing counseling centers from serving students who have relocated out of state. Moreover, some students may struggle with online therapy because they lack a reliable internet connection or live with people who don’t support them seeking mental health services. Colleges will need to find solutions to such problems in order to serve all of their students, especially if the pandemic continues into the next term. Here are three questions counseling center administrators should consider when planning for the months ahead.

DAN ROBITZSKI, Futurism

The network will still be incomplete — Business Insider reports that SpaceX hopes to launch thousands more satellites in the coming years. But the beta will be the first attempt to test out whether Starlink can reliably beam internet service down from space. If it works, it could help improve access to broadband and close the digital divide that’s only become more of a problem since people started isolating at home.

Writing in the Time of COVID-19

Helen Sword, Tomorrow’s Professor

Whether or not you feel as academically productive as you would like to be in these strange, unsettling times, it is crucial to remember that you are still a writer. Every time you scribble a few lines of poetry in your personal journal or tap out a WhatsApp message to a friend, you are coaxing language into new forms and salving the open wound of this troublesome moment in our history. Indeed, by validating and valuing the writing that you are already doing – that is, by listening to what your own words have to teach you – you may discover new ways of carving out more of that writing time you crave: time to think; time to engage with others; time to be anchored in the present; time to create new knowledge; and time to begin the process of healing. It’s time to write.

College students see internships, job offers cancelled due to coronavirus

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Tue, 2020-05-05 02:10

Ryan Golden, Education Dive

Three-quarters of college students in an April 10 to April 12 survey by College Reaction said internships or post-graduate jobs they secured had been canceled, moved remote or delayed amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The poll, which captured the responses of 822 students, also found that about 90% were at least moderately concerned about the pandemic’s impact on the U.S. job market and economy. Most (71%) were concerned about job and internship opportunities, while some 65% were concerned about their personal financial situation. Respondents also indicated that the pandemic has taken a toll on their mental health, with more than half citing mental health distress as a result of the pandemic. Sixty-seven percent said they were concerned about the effects of social isolation.

Southern New Hampshire freshmen will have free tuition, online courses this fall

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Tue, 2020-05-05 02:05

Hallie Busta, Education Dive

Freshmen starting in-person programs at Southern New Hampshire University this fall will get a full-tuition scholarship and take their classes online while living on campus or commuting.  The university announced the plan Wednesday, saying it expects to develop a range of online, hybrid and/or project-based learning pathways to be available starting in the fall of 2021. Southern New Hampshire also said it hopes to cut its annual campus-based tuition by 61% to $10,000 by 2021. The move follows other efforts by the private university to compete directly with public institutions.
