I have never worked more, as an fyi
"D&D via Zoom" (if this phrase makes sense to you, you're a nerd like me)
I agree Lisa
I’m working 12 hour days.
Student Services also moved to virtual overnight and got trained on the fly
And classified professionals, delivering critical services in virtual formats.
Baba Kofi Weusijana
'tis the season for grading
Lisa, I agree with you. I feel like I was working around the clock for a week and a half
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
thank you, thuy. this is the heaviest professional lift i've ever known
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.
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.
what john said
That’s good news - Laurie!
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!
Were the virtual webinars from yesterday recorded? If they were, please share the link(s)
FEI Team zooming daily and working with our NCP faculty and community partners to ensure our students and families are not feeling isolated
Thanks for the update on the Food Pantry, Laurie
@Phuong, all meetings are being recorded and posted online. It includes the chat as well!
👍 John fox
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)??
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.
Yes @ Scott!
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.
Karen: Yes, student can enroll in any course.
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.
@Karen Chow, that isn’t true. Many of us will be teaching synchronously for our former f2f classes
Some courses are going virtual, not online, so scheduled times are still important to honor.
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
Unfortunately most of the Shower facilities are closed in our area. Fair Oaks as of yesterday is the only facility remaining open. Can change.
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...
@Kathhyrn: please have student check in with Melissa Cervantes
hello Kathryn: Please have the student reach out to Melissa.
@Simon, I really hope that isn’t true. I’m planning synchronous teaching for my class
https://www.wehope.org/all-programs (Shelter, Dignity on Wheels, Vehicle Safe Parking, Family Harvest @ East Palo Alto)
Here is some info about internet: https://ccconlineed.instructure.com/courses/5432/pages/reduced-cost-or-free-internet-access?module_item_id=259335
Doh! Didn’t think of faculty teaching synchronously, @KathyP
@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.
OK thanks, Sion and Debbie. I did offer that but she didn’t want to. :(
What Kathy said.
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.
@Simon: the schedule in FAC/KA will still include courses listed as f2f
OK thanks for that clarification Anthony
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?
The banner don’t allow to enroll in classes with conflict time.
We need a focused conversation about synchronous virtual lessons. BIG challenges for many students with this
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.
@jennifer: Yes, we’ll confirm.
YES Kathryn….esp with not having “Enterprise bandwidth” at home
Synchronous teaching/learning is a real equity issue for both students and faculty.
The Online learning team is working on some guides for synchronous virtual instruction. Working with our new faculty team!
Thank you, Laurie!
Students may have many family members using the internet all at the same time of day. Flexibility is key
A&R response time rocks! TY to that team
Best way to have equity is to do asynchronous low bandwidth teaching
@April I have a listing of shower facilities I can email to you
Best way to reach A&R: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for that reminder Karen.

Another email from A&R email@example.com.
Thanks, Laurie Scolari!
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
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
Awesome that FH has loaner laptops for students!
US mail is operating. Can we mail the loaner laptops?
Ongoing webinars and office hours from online learning: https://spark.adobe.com/page/6txykEV2vjyFB/
Wow that’s service, @Ram!!!
can send students things that can be downs and completed offline. not everything has to be zoom.
Can we mail the laptops?
Thank you Melissa Cervantes!
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
Or drive and deliver w/ gloves on while placing social distancing?
Thanks you Christine Johnson for reminding me to add that in!
reminder- fill out your US Census this weekend!
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.
About laptops - if they have lithium-ion cells, I'm not sure we can
you can also give assignments that students can do on phones.
Good point Carolyn!
A laptop delivery service would be wonderful!
is there a laptop rental business we could use?
@carolynbrown thanks for all your suggestions
In addition to laptops, faculty might attempt to find online textbooks/resources so that students do not need a physical textbook if possible
Dual enrollment-is there an extended period for signing in (getting parent signatures)?
Students asked me yesterday if they could still returned their calculators to the library?
Amber La Piana
And take advantage of the many ebooks in the library - no purchase necessary
lots can be done with phones. and students are familiar with using their phones.
is distance learning still in the new “critical sectors”?
Can faculty/staff caring for live animals still get on campus?
how will Spring quarter book vouchers work, since students can’t pick up books now?
Check the library website Brian!
@brianevans - see foothill.edu/library. There is a Lib Guide with options for digital resources/materials
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."
Elvia, they can use their calculators, if they have them, fines are being waived!
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...
No - I already have online free resources. I am just trying to spread the word
@Gay - Yes we are being flexible with dual enrollment forms making it as easy as possible for students to move forward with registration
I just dropped the link to the library guide with alternative textbook options.
@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
@ Lisa S—my question as well. Caring for animals is an essential role. Have to decide who will be coming to help.
@Laura thanks they were planning to go to campus to drop them off on the box outside the library.
@ Elvia Thank you for asking! Please have them keep them until further notice!
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.
So, the bookstore is currently closed?
@Laura G. Will do. Thank you.
“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!
@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
YES The bookstore is currently closed
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.
Echoing Carolyn, many of our students are great on their phone, any assignments that are phone-friendly would be great!
Thank you Romy
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
