Fatima Jinnah

Lisa, I agree with you. I feel like I was working around the clock for a week and a half
Leticia Serna
32:07
I agree, working 24/7 it feels like! I miss people…

If you don’t need your video on please turn off. Saves on bandwidth for the zoom meeting
Kevin Harral
32:32
Ha, Scott!
Patrick Morriss

thank you, thuy. this is the heaviest professional lift i've ever known
Lisa Schultheis
33:16
Agree. Thank you Thuy and all admin.

The hardest part for me is not the prep or grading or the transition, but addressing the unique needs of the students. I have a lot of them that are thrown by the whole disaster.
Doreen Finkelstein
34:08
Sharon, someone in the meeting needs to announce that. A lot of people don't have chat on. Or else these meetings need to be set up so that video is automatically off when you first join.
Patrick Morriss
34:26
what john said
Patricia Gibbs
34:45
That’s good news - Laurie!
Kathryn Maurer
34:48
Yes, what John Fox said. SAME!

Just a reminder to all, if you need help with Canvas or Zoom, or other technology, the team at online learning is here to help!

@Phuong, all meetings are being recorded and posted online. It includes the chat as well!

Does Banner allow students to allow students to enroll in ANY course (e.g. recognizes that there’s no course time/day conflicts now that all courses are online)??
Scott Olsen
35:49
Using the "Speaker View" by clicking on it in the top right of the video or using ALT+F1 may also improve your video quality - it loads fewer live feeds.
Veronica Casas
36:06
Yes @ Scott!
Lené Whitley-Putz
36:18
The webinars offered by online learning are not being recorded—they are very interactive and specific to the group in the meeting. We have other video and written tutorials to help you with Zoom, Canvas, Proctorio, Pronto, and other technology tools. See our website.
penningtonsimon@fhda.edu
36:38
Karen: Yes, student can enroll in any course.
Sarah Williams
36:40
Karen, some classes will hold synchronous meetings (at least in part) so students need to avoid registering for two that are scheduled for the same time.
Kathy Perino
36:42
@Karen Chow, that isn’t true. Many of us will be teaching synchronously for our former f2f classes
Lisa Schultheis
36:50
Some courses are going virtual, not online, so scheduled times are still important to honor.
Kathryn Maurer
37:02
How can students get a loaner laptop wi-fi? I have a student who doesn’t have one, but she doesn’t want to have to leave her house. She’s very afraid
April Henderson
37:12
Unfortunately most of the Shower facilities are closed in our area. Fair Oaks as of yesterday is the only facility remaining open. Can change.
Karen Chow
37:22
Thanks Simon….a student on the unofficial De Anza College FB page said yesterday that they weren’t able to add a course but I’m not sure if what the thought was the issue (schedule conflict) was actually the issue...
Debbie Lee
37:29
@Kathhyrn: please have student check in with Melissa Cervantes
penningtonsimon@fhda.edu
37:39
hello Kathryn: Please have the student reach out to Melissa.
Kathy Perino
37:48
@Simon, I really hope that isn’t true. I’m planning synchronous teaching for my class

Karen Chow
38:11
Doh! Didn’t think of faculty teaching synchronously, @KathyP
Anthony Cervantes
38:15
@Karen, currently we have not heard back from the State if they will allow an override on time conflicts. The courses have not had a schedule change to fully online, so Banner will still block the students from registering. If we hear back I’ll ask VP Lisle to send out an email to all faculty and staff.
Kathryn Maurer
38:21
OK thanks, Sion and Debbie. I did offer that but she didn’t want to. :(
David
38:21
What Kathy said.
karensmith
38:30
Something we’re developing in the library is a sort of “focus group” of student workers to review your departments website, asking them how they perceive navigation, ease of access, specific links opinions.
Debbie Lee
38:32
@Simon: the schedule in FAC/KA will still include courses listed as f2f
Karen Chow
38:33
OK thanks for that clarification Anthony
Jennifer Sinclair
38:56
Contnuing from Karen's comment/question: Many faculty are planning to run synchronous virtual lessons. If banner opens all classes to all students, there's going to be an issue. Can we work that out, Simon?
Arcela Figueroa
39:15
The banner don’t allow to enroll in classes with conflict time.
Kathryn Maurer
39:23
We need a focused conversation about synchronous virtual lessons. BIG challenges for many students with this
foxjohn@fhda.edu
39:37
What's the possibility of getting an extension on grades? A lot of students are asking for extensions, for very good reasons, and if we can submit grades later we can accommodate students better.
penningtonsimon@fhda.edu
39:37
@jennifer: Yes, we’ll confirm.
Karen Chow
39:45
YES Kathryn….esp with not having “Enterprise bandwidth” at home
foxjohn@fhda.edu
40:06
@Agree Kathryn.
Karen Chow
40:07
Synchronous teaching/learning is a real equity issue for both students and faculty.
Lené Whitley-Putz
40:08
The Online learning team is working on some guides for synchronous virtual instruction. Working with our new faculty team!
Valerie Fong
40:18
Thank you, Laurie!
Sarah Corrao
40:20
Students may have many family members using the internet all at the same time of day. Flexibility is key
Adrienne H
40:21
A&R response time rocks! TY to that team
Karen Chow
40:25
Best way to have equity is to do asynchronous low bandwidth teaching
Aristeo Cabrera
40:29
@April I have a listing of shower facilities I can email to you

Equity issues online: The Center for Urban Education webinar: will serve as a collective space for community college equity leaders to discuss where they are, what support is needed, and we can help each other move forward. Especially as on-campus services and support structures phase to online-only interaction. We will be joined by Cynthia Olivo sharing a student services perspective, Paula Umaña addressing concerns around basic needs, and Eric R Felix discussing ways to center equity as we shift our campus structures and practices online. https://uscrossier.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_6vNoWu8PQq2XLfj3PvpKdg
Lené Whitley-Putz
42:13
Thinking through bandwidth, shared devices, and how we use our students time is really critical. Thanks for all the important comments as we shift, @karenchow, @kathrynmaurer
Karen Chow
42:17
Awesome that FH has loaner laptops for students!
Ram Subramaniam
42:45
US mail is operating. Can we mail the loaner laptops?

Wow that’s service, @Ram!!!
carolyn brown

can send students things that can be downs and completed offline. not everything has to be zoom.
erinortiz
43:22
Can we mail the laptops?
Karen Chow
43:35
YES @carolynbrown

thank you
Lisa Schultheis

Thank you Melissa Cervantes!
Laurie Scolari
43:51
More on student workers: if you have a worker and don’t have a project for them, contact our Financial Aid office, they are creating pool of projects to keep the students busy with projects from other departments
erinortiz
43:53
Or drive and deliver w/ gloves on while placing social distancing?
Sarah Williams
44:00
👍 @carolynbrown

44:06
Thanks you Christine Johnson for reminding me to add that in!

ANGELA SU
44:20
Will the college be addressing how they will support FH faculty who may become seriously ill from COVID 19? Although there are varying degrees of symptoms who are COVID 19 positive, I feel its important to consider how this may impact faculty who are now teaching virtually (not online classes) and may not be able to in the event they become seriously ill.
Kevin Metcalf
44:24
About laptops - if they have lithium-ion cells, I'm not sure we can
carolyn brown
44:29
you can also give assignments that students can do on phones.
penningtonsimon@fhda.edu
44:42
Good point Carolyn!
erinortiz
44:42
A laptop delivery service would be wonderful!
Katherine Davidson
44:46
is there a laptop rental business we could use?
Karen Chow
45:14
@carolynbrown thanks for all your suggestions
Brian Evans
45:17
In addition to laptops, faculty might attempt to find online textbooks/resources so that students do not need a physical textbook if possible
Gay Krause
45:18
Dual enrollment-is there an extended period for signing in (getting parent signatures)?
Elvia Herrera
45:34
Students asked me yesterday if they could still returned their calculators to the library?
Amber La Piana
45:38
And take advantage of the many ebooks in the library - no purchase necessary
carolyn brown
45:41
lots can be done with phones. and students are familiar with using their phones.
Katie Ha
45:47
is distance learning still in the new “critical sectors”?
Lisa Schultheis
45:48
Can faculty/staff caring for live animals still get on campus?
Charlie mckellar
45:51
how will Spring quarter book vouchers work, since students can’t pick up books now?
karensmith
45:54
Check the library website Brian!
Valerie Fong
46:06
@brianevans - see foothill.edu/library. There is a Lib Guide with options for digital resources/materials
Kevin Metcalf
46:08
Oh. Wait; my information is old. It should be OK domestically: From the usps post office: "Small consumer-type lithium-ion cells and batteries like those used to power cell phones and laptop computers are mailable domestically under the following conditions."
Micaela Agyare

https://libguides.fhda.edu/online_teaching
Laura Gamez
46:22
Elvia, they can use their calculators, if they have them, fines are being waived!
Joell Hanson
46:31
Joell Hanson from SCCOE K12 - dual enrollment is a good question. I work in support CTE for all Santa Clara County K12 districts, so any info would be great. I can also reach out to Sharon Turner if that is best...
Brian Evans
46:32
No - I already have online free resources. I am just trying to spread the word
Anthony Cervantes
46:46
@Gay - Yes we are being flexible with dual enrollment forms making it as easy as possible for students to move forward with registration
Micaela Agyare
46:47
I just dropped the link to the library guide with alternative textbook options.
Melissa Cervantes
47:00
@Kevin yes, while the bookstore was open, we were able to ship the loaners out to students. Should we be able to do so, we would absolutely try that option
Michelle Channel
47:04
Thanks Anthony!
Lisa Eshman
47:07
@ Lisa S—my question as well. Caring for animals is an essential role. Have to decide who will be coming to help.
Elvia Herrera
47:08
@Laura thanks they were planning to go to campus to drop them off on the box outside the library.
Laura Gamez
47:34
@ Elvia Thank you for asking! Please have them keep them until further notice!
Rachelle Campbell
47:36
The order covers essential services. these issues are part of that. I don’t understand or agree with the statement that no one can go to campus.
Schelitha Tyler
47:38
So, the bookstore is currently closed?
Elvia Herrera
47:47
@Laura G. Will do. Thank you.
Karen Chow
48:02
“Life is a tragedy for those who feel and a comedy for those who think” I think I’m going to FB post that, thanks Thuy!
Sarah Williams
48:07
@Charlie mckellar and everyone: Please consider a free book opportunity that all the publishers are advertising, or a free alternative book (library, OER, etc.). Students don't know how spring quarter will go for them, so this is not a great time for them to invest in expensive textbooks
Romy
48:14
YES The bookstore is currently closed
Sharon Luciw
48:24
Make sure any loaner laptops put through the mail - need to have ‘tracking’ and if appropriate signature. The thieves will be out an about - don’t want laptops left on door steps or mail boxese.
Melissa Cervantes
48:37
Echoing Carolyn, many of our students are great on their phone, any assignments that are phone-friendly would be great!
Schelitha Tyler
48:37
Thank you Romy
Anthony Cervantes
48:39
I forgot to mention that the dual enrollment team will be launching a Smart Sheet Dual Enrollment Form which will allow the form to be emailed
Scott Olsen
