exam integrity is a big concern of mine
00658520
42:44
need to unmute
Dana Heins-Gelder
43:15
I'd like to hear more about the testing options...
Lisa Harding
44:02
I as well would like options for exam integrity
Billie
44:20
The Academic Technology team is going to address those concerns tomorrow at the Open House that is in the L160 from 1:00 - 5:00.
Lisa Harding
44:41
Party in L160!!!
ximena
44:42
@beth: agreed, I think many of us have similar concerns. There is proctorio as an option but ultimately, that is the big advantage of these get together sessions. Hopefully, as more dicussions arise we can share what solutions we come up with.
Billie
45:05
Yes, it's party! Food will be provided!
Lisa Harding
45:27
Hopefully, not a buffet...…...
Andrew Bond
46:09
what time?
Dana Heins-Gelder
46:23
I've done a little research this week on converting word documents to test banks for Canvas. In a nutshell, Canvas doesn't provide this capability, but... You can use the 30 day free license of Respondus to do it. I haven't tried it out yet, but it appears to be an option.
Lesley Bonds
46:27
@Andrew, 1pm-5pm tomorrow
Lesley Bonds
47:41
@Andrew, also happening until 2pm today if you have time after you hop off this Zoom!
Jenny Grohol
47:59
Jenny Grohol here. All should come! I have been sitting with faculty helping them set up their courses. This is a great opportunity for one on one help. Also, if you can not make it, don't forget that YouTube also has training videos.
Dana Heins-Gelder
48:43
I'll be helping out tomorrow too and can assist with Proctorio.
Lisa Harding
48:55
Thanks Jenny! I did not even think about YouTube as a reference. Genius!
ximena
49:30
@dana: great! I'll be there tomorrow and would like to look into proctorio. Party at L160 it is!
Dana Heins-Gelder
50:55
@Ximena - Party! I'll bring the Purell!
Lisa Harding
51:21
Ha! @Dana..love it
Lesley Bonds
59:19
Questions here?
Anabella
59:32
So I'm confused, are all the classes going to be online?
Dana Heins-Gelder
59:46
What ideas are being talked over for uploading tests to Canvas
Lesley Bonds
59:49
Todd: many questions earlier re: Exam Integrity
Wade Ellis
59:55
Related to that, is there a deadline by which people need to go online?
Nigie Shi
01:00:02
I have sent three requests to sign up for ConferZoom but haven't got any approval yet. Is there any way to speed up the process?
ximena
01:00:05
Just curious, has anyone else had delays in getting their conferzoom account? It's been over 24 hours for me so I am guessing they are just overwhelmed with the new requests.
Nicky Damania
01:00:15
charter is providing free internet to k-12 and college students. https://www.1011now.com/content/news/Spectrum-to-offer-free-WiFi-to-college-K-12-students-impacted-by-closures-568778921.html
Wade Ellis
01:00:37
So it is an option to keep my chem labs f2f?
Lisa Harding
01:00:43
Regarding Zoom, Can I just post the meeting ID and reuse it over and over when I teach as well as use online office hours, or does it need to be different for each meeting?
Anabella
01:00:48
Do we know how long this will last or is it indefinite? And I work in the tutoring center, so will that be open still?
Olivia Garcia
01:01:00
That is awesome, Nicky!
ximena
01:01:02
@Nigie: I have sent 2 and emailed their support. They replied back that it is taking up to 72 hours and I have not received mine yet either.
Wade Ellis
01:01:18
Spectrum is also providing some free internet options I have heard.
Dana Heins-Gelder
01:01:23
@Lisa Harding Yes, if you have a Pro-ConferZoom account, you can have a dedicated office
00658520
01:01:29
If there is a hard closure will we still have access to our labs so we can video lead a lab to our students?
Anabella
01:01:30
Thank you Sonia
Victor Diaz
01:02:14
Nicky, will link to free WiFi be added to website?
jason
01:02:17
Techsmith is providing free Camtasia and Snagit: https://discover.techsmith.com/remote-techsmith/
Lisa Harding
01:02:26
@Dana, Thanks again! You keep coming through for me!
Chris Glaser
01:02:29
@ximena Many here on campus have heard that Zoom is having some delays in provide accounts. Some people are getting messages that it could take up to 72 hours.
Nigie Shi
01:02:34
@ximena: Thank you! I
ximena
01:02:44
@ Jason: thanks for that info, good to know.
Andrew Bond
01:03:15
so no food in L160 today, but food tomorrow?
Lesley Bonds
01:03:24
So far, I am aware Charter Spectrum and Comcast are offering free internet. Details on their websites
Dana Heins-Gelder
01:03:30
Adobe Spark is a great free tool for creating quick attractive videos.
Chris Glaser
01:03:31
@Andrew Bond, there is definitely food in L160 right now. :)
oliverarosales
01:04:04
On the creating “tests” on CANVAS, if you create exam questions in the “test bank,” can that transfer to multiple sections? Or do you have to make each exam per section; the pain is typing in the questions/answers
Naomi Rutuku
01:04:35
ConferZoom does take up to two days after creating an account to be able to get all features.
Metin Eroglu
01:04:37
You can easily transfer material from one class page to the other.
Dana Heins-Gelder
01:04:44
@Oliver Canvas will allow you to copy items from course to course
Lesley Bonds
01:04:48
@Wade Ellis, yes for now. physical labs, performance classes, or those that will be particularly difficult to move to a virtual environment are the current exceptions. However, that could change as the situation develops
Olivia Garcia
01:04:49
You should be able to “import” a test, Oliver
Dana Heins-Gelder
01:06:16
What ideas are being talked over for uploading test banks to Canvas?
Jenny Grohol
01:06:56
You want to contact your publisher, they will walk you through how to do it. The process is different for each publisher
Jenny Frank
01:07:09
For Veterans, we are having our tutors online as of Monday, but they are still available for walk in and appointment.
Chris Glaser
01:07:14
Here is the Comcast website for free or reduced internet: https://internetessentials.com/
Dana Heins-Gelder
01:07:34
@Jenny THanks, I don't mean publisher banks, I mean our own tests (ie word format to Canvas)
Victor Diaz
01:07:40
Thank you Chris
Jenny Grohol
01:08:00
You can also enter in each test question one by one in the quiz tab
Jenny Grohol
01:08:11
It takes some time, but it is totally doable
Dana Heins-Gelder
01:09:03
@Jenny I suspect there is a way to do it bulk. I heard Respondus does that. Has anyone used Respondus?
heidi
01:09:16
Will M & O be open? I will need to print material for my classes ISP classes.
ximena
01:09:19
@Jenny: not for faculty with many class preps, that should be a last resort imo.
Lesley Bonds
01:09:30
@heidi, yes - for now!
heidi
01:09:54
Thanks @Lesley Bonds!
Jenny Grohol
01:10:58
@ Dana I bet there is. Maybe there is a YouTube video showing you how to do it
Lesley Bonds
01:11:02
If anyone is interested in writing a piece on how BC has managed the transition in a student-centered way, with a sort of grassroots, whole-campus strategy, contact me :) Lesley.bonds@Bakersfieldcollege.edu would love to publish something with you
00658520
01:12:01
Awesome!!
00658520
01:12:11
AWE...
Lesley Bonds
01:12:55
Maybe start filming video tutorials now...
Olivia Garcia
01:13:24
Great idea, Lesley!
Dana Heins-Gelder
01:14:17
ScreenCastify is a great free tool for screen casts too
Dan Hall
01:15:24
Screencast-o-matic is another great tool: https://screencast-o-matic.com/
heidi
01:15:37
Thank you @Sonya!
Michelle Begendik
01:16:09
I have been asked about automatic captions or transcripts with ConferZoom. Is that an option?
Olivia Garcia
01:17:06
Yay, Pamela!
Victor Diaz
01:17:25
Great idea Olivia that will help student with their potential stree level as well...Thank You
James McGarrah
01:17:54
On Sunday I have scheduled two ConferZoom meeting times my class - to capture those students that are available. We will see how it goes.
Lisa Harding
01:18:03
With zoom caption, you have to copy and paste it into a document, it wont close caption on the video (last I checked a few weeks ago)
Olivia Garcia
01:18:45
Thank you, Victor! Great ideas from everyone!
ximena
01:18:47
Thank you to all the presenters for sharing, these ideas really help!
heidi
