Treva Thomas - Lake Tahoe CC
29:43
@Lori -- Ditto!!
Leona
29:55
I would like to acknowledge all the instructors who are having to go w-a-a-a-y outside their comfort zone and teach online to support our students. I know how difficult it is, and it shows our dedication to the community.
Solange Schwalbe
30:13
Thanks so much to Dr. Scott and Treva for their wisdom and time to teach all of us Canvas…

Part of our job is to message to all that DE education is really advanced at this point. For many of us teaching in DE over the years, we can help with that messaging.
Treva Thomas - Lake Tahoe CC
47:24
Also, on the Virtual Campus for students, there is the link to free ebooks from VitalSource
Scott Lukas
54:57
Use modules and PLEASE hide Pages from your students’ view on Canvas. Modules are the navigation through your class.
betsy fedor
56:18
Do we have a plan if an instructor gets ill?
Larry Green
57:31
I use group projects. That helps students connect with each other.
Scott Lukas
58:06
It might be good to include the College’s Student Success videos/page in your Canvas class. http://www.ltcc.edu/academics/virtual_campus/virtualcampusstudentsupport.php
Sarah Marquez
01:00:13
Students are also asking counselors the plan for face to face classes. Please let us know the messaging too.
Amber Herron
01:00:33
should we consider recording our lectures for anytime access for our students?
Sue
01:00:40
Will you notify students to get Zoom app in time for classes? and is it safe to assume they will all have audio and video capability?
Scott Lukas
01:01:09
Amber, there are some ideas included about lecture recording in the videos at the top of this chat. You can save lectures in a number of places in Canvas.
Scott Lukas
01:01:35
Sue, you do not necessarily need the Zoom app. A setting in Profiles
Catalina Goralski
01:01:37
I called my students to let them know about changes.
Jenny Darby
01:01:40
How do we access the recorded meetings?
Amber Herron
01:01:58
thank you Jeff
Frances Pistoresi
01:01:59
Beyond using video...it can be good to have space to have more social/casual interactions. You can have a discussion thread where each week you can share pictures of pets, dream vacations, etc. to try to build community. It might seem small, but it can help engage students. In a slightly different vein, I think that there would also be the possibility of using Google docs (or the Word equivalent) to collaborate on different assignments. As a writing instructor, it is nice to work with students on assignments or model work.
Scott Lukas
01:02:02
a setting in Zoom allows anyone to use the join from URL without an app.
Marissa Wahl
01:02:17
Do we get to decide which portal we use (Zoom vs Canvas studio?)
Catalina Goralski
01:02:24
I’m planning to do discussions in ZOOM
Scott Lukas
01:02:41
Marissa, the option is up to you in terms of using Zoom or Canvas Studio.
Scott Lukas
01:03:15
I might want to do another Zoom training soon.
Leona
01:03:43
Our Instructor Cadre probably won't be ready to go "live" with our online class by the first day of the spring quarter. Can we delay the beginning of our course until we're ready?
Kellie Greiner
01:03:55
Please make sure that you are keeping captioning in mind :) Zoom does great auto captions and transcripts. We may need to request captioners or interpreters for webinars.
Scott Lukas
01:04:16
Canvas Studio also has great built-in captioning
Maxine Alper
01:04:39
The ESL classes are all using Zoom for the Spring quarter.
Sara Pierce
01:04:52
But, Kellie, Spanish is not able to caption, correct?
Catalina Goralski
01:04:53
What about captioning in Spanish?
Logan
01:04:59
Are we allowed (by law) to record students with Zoom?
Scott Lukas
01:05:04
You can choose the caption language in Canvas Studio.
Scott Lukas
01:05:21
It will do Spanish.
Sara Pierce
01:05:34
Thank you Scott!
Scott Lukas
01:05:42
You don’t have to post the videos to an external site and this will keep the recordings private (to Logan).
Logan
01:06:09
Thank you, Scott!
Scott Lukas
01:06:57
See the image for the Spanish example of captioning.
Mary Cook
01:07:10
I saw that Zoom has the ability to do "breakout rooms" if you want to have your students get into groups to discuss something for ten or so minutes. I really enjoy small-group discussions in my classroom, so it is nice to know I can still facilitate this in Zoom. I just wonder if I will be able to "eavesdrop" as the instructor on all their different group discussions in these breakout rooms. Has anyone tried this?
Sue
01:07:13
Thanks Lindsey
Melinda Button
01:07:32
How do we get a background like Lindsey?
Scott Lukas
01:07:37
Mary, I think you could eavesdrop. Haven’t tried it yet.
Melanie Chu
01:07:37
Mary, yes, the instructor can float between break out rooms.
Leslie Amato

Treva Thomas - Lake Tahoe CC
01:08:20
A space for us to collaborate is the LTCC Canvas, Online & EVE User Group at https://laketahoecc.instructure.com/courses/206 . Go and see if you have access, if not, please shoot me an email.
Leslie Amato
01:08:26
Normally we only do walk-in registration, will there be an option to register online?
Scott Lukas
01:09:15
for virtual backdrop, go to the settings on the app (see image)
Lindsey Bertomen
01:09:34
Melinda, backgrounds are in your settings. If it is your zoom, just click on the “up arrow” next to “stop video”. Otherwise it is in your profile settings. This is a generic one. Students like it.
Melinda Button
01:09:45
thanks!
Scott Lukas
01:10:00
You can also upload an image to replace the default virtual backgrounds.

Thanks for all your hard work... Treva, Scott and the entire admin team!
B. Yerian
01:16:43
In this time of transition, Can faculty order supplies from their own department budgets (using their own money, to be reimbursed by LTCC) and have things delivered to their homes to expedite the process? And assuming normal channels to be reimbursed?
B. Yerian
01:17:09
Is there a way we can get our office monitors and keyboards?

Hi Bryan - not sure of the purchasing question but IT is working on a process for checking out our office technology. Please stand by.
Mary Cook
01:19:47
If we need to give our some of our students incompletes this quarter to allow them more time to get final materials in (past the April 1 final grade submission deadline), is there a way to file the paperwork for an incomplete online? In the past, I've done this in person at the One-Stop office.
Maxine Alper
01:20:04
Leslie Amato -in the past the noncredit ESL and HSE classes have only done F2F registration. We are setting up for thenoncredit registration forms to be put online and for students to be able to register for our classes. We know they will need help but we will be able to talk them through it.
Alexandra Bissonnette
01:20:29
Hi Bryan - in terms of getting technology, we will arrange times for folks to come in and pick up technology when we have our check-out procedure in place
Alexandra Bissonnette
01:20:53
And regarding purchasing, I’ve reached out for clarity. Stay tuned!
Leslie Amato
01:22:53
Thanks Maxine, I had asked that as I believe you had that question earlier - Thanks for the follow-up
Lori Thorne
01:23:35
Adjunct Faculty - please send a note to instruction@ltcc.edu letting us know you participated today. Thank you.
Jenny Darby
01:24:17
This training in Zoom is amazing. I have been teaching totally online for two colleges and never have used Zoom. This will enhance my teaching tremendously.
Sue
01:24:23
Poll is hard, I need many of those!
Catalina Goralski
01:24:27
How we will contact IT if we need help?
phyllisshafer
01:24:28
How do I waive pre-req challenges remotely?
Sarah Marquez
01:25:01
Pre reqs can be cleared by a counselor. You or a student can email counselor@ltcc.edu
Mary Cook
01:25:01
Is there a way to file the paperwork for an incomplete online?
Lori Thorne
01:25:12
Instruction will reach out to faculty with pre-req challenges and we will approve them through email.

Mary Cook

Will we be able to fill out and SIGN our timesheets for office hours and committees online? I don't have a printer at home.
Sue

Hi Kenya, Could you please send me an incomplete as well?
Lori Thorne

Jenny Darby

I don’t see the Corona Virus stats from Lake Tahoe down here in Riverside County in SoCal. How bad is it there?
Sara Pierce

Jeff, do we plan on staying at Level 2 moving forward at this time?
markwilliams

Sue

There are a bunch of plants in the bio lab that need to be watered 1x/week, would I be able to get in during Level 2 to water, or someone I can talk to about getting plants watered? Thanks.

Is there any chance of the campus re-opening for F2F or we not even looking at that opportunity to meet with our students in classroom setting
