Justin

Hear! Hear!
Erik Blomberg
40:21
would be nice to have the screen in view
Erik Blomberg
40:27
sound is great
Justin
40:31
true
michael.weber
40:36
Agreed! Audio is great! Thank you for setting up Zoom!
Erik Blomberg

thanks

On scale: How many Zoom interactions can be hosted simultaneously
Justin
58:50
There were reports in the School of Learning and Teaching last week that faculty were locked out of Zoom
Justin
59:29
We weren’t clear if that was an issue with Zoom in general or an issue for our license agreement
Neil Shelley
01:00:06
I tested Zoom with my class yesterday, in person. By default, (if I’m not mistaken) you should have the ability to have 100 simultaneous connections.
sarah.howorth@maine.edu
01:00:26
There are currently 171 of us on now
kristendonovan (she/hers)
01:00:39
I think we can have up to 300 people in a meeting
Justin
01:00:49
It was more how many distinct meetings can UMaine host?
kristendonovan (she/hers)
01:00:54
Per the Zoom training I had with CITL this morning. Thanks CITL!
Justin
01:01:00
At one time
Neil Shelley
01:01:15
Ah, not sure about that one.
Edwin Nagy
01:01:16
Please repeat questions for those of us online.
sarah.howorth@maine.edu
01:01:16
Great question Justin!
Cynthia Loftin
01:01:19
It would be helpful if the speaker would repeat the question
Jonathan Rubin
01:01:24
Please ack the speaker to repeat questions
Teri Mann
01:01:28
Could questions be repeated?
Beth
01:01:29
Those of us on Zoom can't hear the questions
Deirdre Boylan
01:01:36
Can someone repeat the questions into the microphone?
Pank Agrrawal, PhD
01:01:45
Sarah H. - cool, how do you see 171 of us right now?
margaretlukens
01:01:47
Please REPEAT THE QUESTION for those of us on Zoom
sarah.howorth@maine.edu
01:02:04
Next to the participants icon there is a number
maryellenmahoneyoneil
01:02:12
If a graduate course is meeting off campus, at a local high school, can that course continue to meet as a live course or does it also need to move online?
alisia.revitt@maine.edu
01:02:51
Pank A - At the bottom of the screen are those icons with "unmute", "start video" all that stuff, and one of them says "Participants" and next to it is currently 169, which is the number of participants.
Pank Agrrawal, PhD
01:03:00
Thanks
Teri Mann
01:03:06
What options will be made for those accessing tutoring services?
sarah.howorth@maine.edu
01:03:44
Are students unable to work on campus?
emily.j.baker
01:04:27
What about time zones? Are students who are from the west coast going to be expected to attend their 8am zoom lecture at 5am?
haohong
01:04:33
Thanks for mentioning students who need jobs. It will be tough for them.
kristendonovan (she/hers)
01:04:46
I think that’s the argument for asynchrony, for sure
Erin Vinson
01:05:14
Agreed - we can’t even imagine the other things students will be dealing with when they go home.
Beth
01:05:24
I'd also like to know if work study students can still work
echapman@maine.edu
01:05:40
Tutor Program services will continue. Students will meet via Zoom.
haohong
01:06:07
Some students told me that they could not work on campus (dining halls, e.g.). That’s why they need to find jobs in this already chaotic situation…
Pank Agrrawal, PhD
01:06:12
I took a class poll in my 160 student classes, almost all wanted asynchronous video of lectures.
tiffany.peterson@maine.edu
01:06:13
How will graduate assistants be impact by this?
Erin Vinson
01:06:28
We are doing everything we can to ensure Maine Learning Assistants keep working in their respective courses as well.
Erin Vinson
01:08:44
I work on and UMaine is home to the journal CourseSource - a peer-reviewed open-access journal of evidence-based teaching resources for undergraduate biology education. We have some great online teaching resources!
Gabrielle
01:09:47
what ideas do people have for classes that involve public speaking?
sarah.howorth@maine.edu
01:11:04
You can do class polls in Zoom as well
jennifermcnulty
01:11:36
ZOOM or Kaltura could work for public speaking. A student can make a video and upload it to Blackboard or use ZOOM and do it in real-time.
sarah.howorth@maine.edu
01:15:58
Can research that involves human subject groups on campus (less than 20 people) still continue?
James JS
01:18:29
Is there a campus wide or system wide subscription to Slack like there is for zoom?
kristendonovan (she/hers)
01:18:37
Doesn’t Slack require payment after a certain number of interactions? Are there FERPA concerns to use for courses?
kristendonovan (she/hers)
01:19:08
I’m assuming that Discord might have similar questions re: FERPA constraints
Karen Miller
01:19:14
Yes Slack has a limit of
maryellenmahoneyoneil
01:20:16
Will there be a protocol in place moving forward for our outreach programs that work in public schools etc. (such as Upward Bound, Maine Talent Search)
sarah.howorth@maine.edu
01:23:24
Will students who come back from states such as CA and CT need to self-quarantine for 2 weeks?
sarah.howorth@maine.edu
01:28:01
Thank you for using the microphone so we can all hear :)
Karen Miller
01:28:33
Will the librarians be available for research via email, zoom etc
James JS
01:29:41
I'm sure official word will come out soon, but I know that Fogler Library is actively planning on how to best support students and faculty during this time
Justin
01:29:58
I second making things as simple as possible for our students
JaredTalbot
01:30:20
It may be too early to tell, but students are asking me if there will be a graduation ceremony this year. Has the university made preliminary plans about this yet?
sarah.howorth@maine.edu
01:31:09
Great question! How will ADA accommodations be supported?
Sara Henry
01:31:52
Hi this is Sara Henry. Student Accessibility Services is working on this at the current time. We have some plans in place and are working at others.
Alan Cobo-Lewis
01:31:53
Yes, timed tests as suggested earlier (eg, tophat) would have to include different timing if required as an accommodation
jennifermcnulty
01:33:50
What about students who are conducting their internships on campus?
sarah.howorth@maine.edu
01:33:59
Will students who come back from states such as CA and CT need to self-quarantine for 2 weeks?
Kelley Strout
01:34:04
Can we allow our students to finish up clinical placements during spring break?
sarah.howorth@maine.edu
01:34:39
What about students who currently live off campus?
Sara Henry
01:35:14
Student Accessibility Services is contacting faculty to find out about course delivery and work with them on how to set up accommodations like extra time on tests and find Universal Design options that may help all students.
Ryan LaRochelle
01:35:51
Will there be storage available for students who cannot move all of their belongings out on such short notice? Several students asked about this in my classes today.
sarah.howorth@maine.edu
01:36:31
Can research that involves UG research assistants and human subject groups on campus (less than 20 people) still continue?
alisia.revitt@maine.edu
01:38:54
There are no plans for statewide public library closures currently.
rarnold
01:39:10
We have already been asked if students can come to campus to work on group projects — What should the response be to those folks?
alisia.revitt@maine.edu
01:39:52
Decisions like that would come from the municipality or the library themselves if they are not part of a municipality.
jennifermcnulty
01:40:18
They could work on group projects through ZOOM.
bonnie.newsom
01:45:37
Will faculty illness and continuity of instruction be handled at the Department level?
Katherine Allen
01:50:39
Can individual undergraduate students continue to conduct laboratory research after spring break if they live locally?
rarnold
01:51:29
Are students coming back from Study Abroad designated to be tested prior to coming back?
kristendonovan (she/hers)
01:54:44
How long is this supposed to last? In other words, is there an end date? Summer research can start May 11 or ….?
Amanda Klemmer
01:55:10
Yes, students are asking about their summer work on campus and classes this summer, etc.
MJ Sedlock
01:56:43
What is the question!!
Teri Mann
01:56:48
???
rarnold
01:57:36
Has the been announced
Teri Mann
01:58:08
Please repeat the questions
Alisia Revitt
01:58:17
repeat the question please?
sarah.howorth@maine.edu
01:58:22
Thank you for repeating the question so we can all here please
Alisia Revitt
01:58:25
and the last one was about...?
Erin Vinson
01:58:35
Research symposium in april i think...
tcole
01:58:44
Student Symposium has been postponed. Any virtual possibilities?
Deborah
01:59:09
What is the plan for graduation?
sarah.howorth@maine.edu
01:59:25
Thank you for repeating the question so we can all here please
tcole
01:59:39
Can’t imagine there will be a commencement unless things improve dramatically
Deborah
02:00:01
virtual commencement?
margaretlukens
02:00:37
Student Symposium has been cancelled, HOWEVER, the March 13 deadline for abstracts is still in place for the presumptive rescheduling of the event (might be fall 2020)
Erin Vinson
02:00:52
Thank you!
Erin Vinson
02:02:13
Are department seminars and colloquia canceling?
kristendonovan (she/hers)
02:02:55
And other meetings between faculty, like CoPs (Erin I’m looking at you!)?
Edwin Nagy
02:02:58
I think we just took our department seminar series virtual…
Erin Vinson
02:03:25
We’ll do the same, Kristen - meeting virtually. But I’ll confirm sooN!
maryellenmahoneyoneil
02:03:32
We have cancelled the award ceremony for our College that was scheduled for April 15.
Erin Vinson
02:03:44
Thanks, Edwin. We have a speaker coming in April from Calgary…and not sure what to tell her yet.
maryellenmahoneyoneil
02:03:57
Will work on creating a virtual experience!
tcole
02:05:14
I don’t know that we have done it yet, but I would think we have to reassess the CLAS Awards Ceremony on April 27. The awards will be granted and winners acknowledged, but the event itself is probably not going to be held. This is not official yet, I’m just thinking through the logic of the situation.
Amanda Klemmer
02:06:57
Just so my question is on the record, is there going to be a university policy on Graduate defenses, etc. where groups of people aggregate
Erin Vinson
02:07:07
Thank you!
kristendonovan (she/hers)
02:07:13
Thank you!
Edwin Nagy
02:07:19
