All classes will be online. We haven't gotten any direction from upper admin.
Hello from Lafayette College in Easton, PA
We have the same situation Dei
Internally, we are talking through scenarios.
Ditto here Dei
Ole Miss summer class online. Fall???
If all classes are online for summer, that implies that we won't have reason to open. Other than for staff on campus.
We are looking at multiple scenarios. August start (for when football returns), We have 7 week terms, so we are also looking at a “B” term start, what do we need to do operationally for whenever we start and what do we need to do to "open"
My concern is more about fall
Online for summer classes as well, closed until June 30th
Summer Camps are cancelled through mid-July.
Looking at a projected 10% reduction of budget for fall as budgets get revised.
We have loosely been told to expect a start date for pro staff to report back that is as much time as needed before student/PT staff come back
Hiring of student staff will have to be done remotely
Still waiting on camps for summer @Wingate. Orientation not happening on campus.
Sorry, no mic.
I believe what has gone into that decision wise is the following:
Hiring freeze right now
-city regulations, what is the governor going to state?
Ole Miss - summer camps done - thus no income :(
-if we do not have students allowed on campus and staff is it ok to open up immediately for camp, etc.
Campus wide camps (i.e. Cheer/Dance, Boys State, Athletics...). We do not host any. It was Admin decided and those outside of also deciding.
I do know our “summer programs” office has been in discussion nation wide with other camps and what exactly can and cannot happen.
Summer camps at Texas A&M Galveston have been canceled, summer classes online through summer 2, all orientations moved online through summer as well.
I work at a college in Canada - our facility is locked down so automatically had to cancel all summer rental booking plus student association may be refunding part of winter athletic fee and waiving summer athletic fee
So revenue taking huge hit
Adelphi - We are doing our staff recruitment virtually now to get ready for the fall. We are also planning to do virtual student supervisor training as much as possible possibly with monthly sessions starting now and thru the summer to start to prepare for reopening. Fresh orientation moved from July to Aug with welcome weekend.
Is everyone else looking at moving a lot of staff training for fall online? If so any ideas what that is looking like for you?
I would recommend panel discussion and also maybe multiple info sessions via zoom and giving the timeline to accepted students
Orientation - going to do a video and a drop in zoom type meeting to talk about programs and services.
Open houses this summer is all virtual. They are including student activities
sorry this "spring"
Not decided yet for UofSC Aiken but one recommendation is to push to keep all of them live moving them to end of July/August for all of them.
Small school problem - getting the marketing folks to do a quality video. We have to "get in line" with all the other areas that want to do video.
Another reasoning I am going online majority is because when they are back on campus, the last thing I want to do is have my staff sit down and listen to me speak in a classroom, yet have hands on learning around the facilities
We sue Canvas for various training modules
Training wil be challenging for such aspects as cpr/first aid and bbp
Reach out to departments in charge of orientation. Don't wait for them to approach you. Their plates are full transitioning to a digital orientation program and it will be easy (and understandable) for them to forget about some campus partners.
Currently Kahoot has been fun with our staff to stay InTouch and motivated for next year.
same as you, have a library of photos, inform them of what we are doing, making sure we have a slot on student activities newsletters, social media: tagging the university within our posts.
We reach out to Center for Student involvement. Just had a meeting today to get on same page and collaborate on what we are currently doing. Came up with good ideas to combine our efforts on a couple of things. THey also gave us some good feedback on how to present an award event for staff and clubs virtually.
American Red Cross does not support any contact until further notice, plus we cannot put our students at risk if they are expected to respond to an emergency and break social distancing expectations
We share a google doc within the Student Life Department with info and a flyer that is hyperlinked. That way we can all download and share each other’s programs through all social media outlets...
One thing we are doing now - forced by this but has been needed for awhile. Create an online onboarding for all students to complete within the first 6 weeks of employment that keeps everything consistent. Using Blackboard and will create a "class" specific to Campus Recreation & Wellness
Adelphi - yes google doc with cthem also!
Ole Miss uses Black Board for our EAP review (test), but it is difficult to use for a course
I have to head out, but thank you all and continue to be awesome and change the world!!
Mila - we use Blackbooard to - any chance you can provide your email so those of us that have Blackboard can reach out to you?
We tried to use Canvas for training, but the academic language and ease of use was very time consuming... Microsoft Teams has been an amazing way to create shared documents and a site to create online training
I assume most small schools are tuition driven for funding. Do you have an idea of what the fall freshman enrollment looks like?
Safe Colleges is the university training program for all employees. They have a lot of canned training, but you can also make your own. Also, you can set up "tests" they must pass a certain % of correct answers.
How does this online onboarding create a sense of community/team? How does it give a sense of inclusion? I worry that without bringing them together with leaders creates a sense of isolation.
Our enrollment is actually about 20-25% of where we were at this point last year, Mila. But we are not sure if that will continue going forward with the current climate.
Dei - how much is it down - your video freezing - maybe turn off video
Thanks for email Mila
Anthony, could you pls give us a URL for Safe Colleges program
Just for clarification.. Online isn't replacing our face to face training - we will be doing both. Hoping some of the nuts and bolts that are important can be done this way which allows us to do more overarching professional development.
Nation wide CR may become "Non Esst" and yes keeping data as to how we are keeping our students engaged,.
Same here, Chris!!
Same with Ole Miss - crazy
How are you doing live classes with music copyright issue?
We have made sure to be included in centralized student resources for the university. On the website, featured on the main university Instagram, and a story about sports in the next issue of the magazine. With a big concern on student well-being we are trying to make ourselves essential with our services - Vanguard university
Same with Wellesley College
are you doing group x classes live?
How many of you are collaborating or communicating with counseling folks on your campuses? I think this is important piece for us.
what are some of the things schools ARE doing to keep students engaged???
Group exercise classes are placed through Zoom - UT Rio Grande Valley.
We are using Wellbeats, they are giving students free access until May 31st I believe
fun DIY videos about things you have at home to use
are any schools running a virtual 5k that would be willing to share information?
What type of DIY videos?
Where are you posting these classes?
what has been the most effective way to market virtual classes and programming. Social media?
also interested in virtual 5k information
Starting the Group Ex through Zoom and eSports as well.
mostly craft ideas. how you can make paint with basic items at home
We have a Strava group 5K every Wednesday
Yes! In planning as we speak!
Ole Miss has 150 signed up for the 5k - more later
Is anyone using an incentive platform?
We are doing it at SBU its been very successful
My colleauge Tom St. John is running it
Prizes for 5K? How do you get it to them?
Hello Thanks for hosting!
We have tried to find gift cards we could send over an app to raffle off. Postmates, Microsoft store (for sports)
We are doing one $10 e-gift card sent directly to the randomly drawn participant to Grubhub, UberEats, Panera, etc. Fortunately had a little budgeted for those things that we got approval to use.
How about using all those left over IM Ts
For participation this summer. Making a difference if they ARE/ARE NOT enrolled in summer (online) classes?
Is there a centralized incentive platform? An app where all programs are listed besides social media challenges that allows participants to rack up points to redeem for prizes? Like peter piper?
an external organization is offering a free Quarantine Cup for Fortnite, Rocket League and Smash Bros that gives students the opportunities to win prizes, giftcards, etc.
Happy to share the information with anyone who is interested!
Our tshirt vendor for our 5k offered to mail race shirts to each participant individually. Might be worth asking your vendor if this is an option!
We at Logan University use Mission Control and that is going well. Glen.Kemper@Logan.edu. And I agree exactly with Andrew.
All you little kids I don't know what you are talking about. I just used pong as a college student.
For people who are having success with esports, was this something you already had established pre-covid? We tried starting leagues on IMLeagues due to this situation and haven’t seen much participation at all.
Pretty sure Houseparty only allows 8 total people
@Joe we ran 1 tournament each semester but since covid has taken over, we've kind of established everything over the last month and we've seen decent success
Ole Miss YES data is very important
We use our fitness platform ATLETO- its a closed group you need a SBU email to sign up and it tracks stats
Group Ex person told me they set up a password access with Zoom.
I have my Zumba/STRONG instructor tracking total number of participants and entering them in a shared doc...
We use Wellbeats Virtual Trainer
Zoom added a passcode our "community" has to enter
Imleagues and someone from pro staff or GA takes attendance at the live classes. We can see views of our recorded classes and we are starting to record this data.
we are sending links via email to student and member listservs. posting the schedule on FB page but not the links
instructor must let them "in" when they join
I have to run to another meeting - thanks for facilitating Chris and Andrew!
You are welcome!
Before we end, can we get back to the ?? How are you doing live classes with music copyright issue?
We don't see ppl other than our own communityin our classes
We were shutdown on Youtube
We have run into to copyright as well. Pandora business account will work
Claflin University was shut down on YouTube so we switched to Zoom with no issues
Thanks for this - great meeting - gotta another meeting to go to!
After a live class on zoom. Is there way for people to see the class at a later date?
Look at Spotify as well
Thank you all. Keep up all the good work and questions! Stay safe!
Ok we've run into trouble with youtube.
Thanks for hosting today!
FYI don't forget about online ARC CPR courses
Is anyone having their instructors read a disclaimer before classes? Or for workouts you are posting?
We have them sign it before the class the app we use houses it
If anyone is interested https://wellbeats.com/
Thank you everyone!
Thank you this is my fav roundtable!
that will be great yes!
Thanks so much for hosting
That’s great, thanks Christine, Chris, and Andrew!
