9 student observations about online learning

A global pandemic can change learning, but it can’t stop it–and during a virtual EDUCAUSE conference session, educators heard directly from students how to best meet student needs during online learning.

Moderated by Kate Miffitt, director for innovation in California State University’s Office of the Chancellor, and with questions led by Michael Berman, chief information officer with California State University’s Office of the Chancellor, the discussion covered student engagement, mental health and well-being, online course structure, and much more.

“While it’s important for those of us in IT and leadership to get together and talk about what we’re doing, sometimes we don’t get enough opportunities to listen to the voice of the students,” Berman said.

1. Focus on accessibility during online learning.

“The best thing, overall, is accessibility,” said Daniel Izarraras, a faculty instructional technology services student assistant at San Diego State University. “We have all the resources there, and [SDSU] helps with accommodations like hotspots and laptops.”

2. Acknowledge differences in time zones–and states and countries of residence.

“Penn State worked really fast to adapt to online classes. …I’d say that sometimes, with international students like me, it’s hard to attend classes when you’re in a different time zone. [You can] watch Zoom recordings, but if questions come up during class–that’s an issue we’re trying to solve,” said Laura Gil Ortiz, a tech TA and tech tutor with Penn State.


2021 could be worse for colleges

Colleges are now starting to calculate the full costs of the coronavirus, including the fallout from declining enrollments and rising operating costs, the Chronicle of Higher Education reports.

At places like Ithaca College, the impact of the pandemic is accelerating plans for major cuts in faculty jobs and academic programs. Beginning this spring, the college will begin to cut nearly a quarter of its 547 faculty members, said La Jerne T. Cornish, Ithaca’s provost.



Wiley Education Services Adds Four New University Partners

Wiley Education Services, part of John Wiley and Sons Inc., announced the signing of several new university partnerships this year including Calvin University, La Trobe University, Methodist University and University of New Haven, to support more than 45 undergraduate and graduate online programs across a variety of high-demand disciplines from healthcare to counseling and cybersecurity.

“We are continuing to see an increased, proactive commitment to strategic online learning programs from universities, not for emergency support amid COVID-19, but to promote long-term success,” said Todd Zipper, President of Wiley Education Services. “We look forward to serving as a trusted partner to each university, delivering top-quality faculty training and career-focused education in subject areas that are critically needed now and will surely be essential to post-pandemic recovery.”

Calvin University

Calvin University, located in Grand Rapids, Michigan, has signed with Wiley to deliver 13 graduate and undergraduate degree programs over the course of the partnership in subjects including education, business, public health, exercise science and psychology. The first program, a master’s in education (M.Ed.) with concentrations in both literacy and inclusion specialist, launched in the fall of 2020. Calvin University will take advantage of Wiley’s full suite of offerings including marketing, recruitment, retention and academic services.

“We are reaching out with our unique mission and vision to new learning communities across the globe,” Kevin R. den Dulk, Associate Provost and head of the Global Campus at Calvin University. “We see the partnership with Wiley as a way to complement our strengths in undergraduate education by introducing our distinctive approach to faith and learning to working adults and other learners. The opportunity has been energizing and fruitful, even in this time of great disruption.”

La Trobe University

La Trobe University, in Melbourne, Australia, has partnered with Wiley to initially launch five redeveloped graduate programs in public health, mental health, mental health nursing, health administration and business administration. The first four programs are set to launch on March 1, 2021. La Trobe will maintain responsibility for the academic development and delivery of these programs, with Wiley providing online education design support to the university’s academic staff, as well as some student recruitment and additional faculty support.

“Our ambition to be a leading provider of online higher education has been further enhanced with this exciting new partnership with Wiley, which will offer even greater choice and flexibility for our postgraduate students who want to study online,” Professor John Dewar AO, Vice-Chancellor Professor at La Trobe University said. “While the COVID-19 pandemic has necessarily accelerated the uptake of online study, our ambition, for some time, has been to provide a greater range of high-quality online courses that provide an exceptional experience and respond to student need. This new partnership will help fulfil that goal.”

Methodist University

Methodist University, located in Fayetteville, North Carolina, will engage with Wiley for a suite of 21 programs, with the first five programs set to launch in January 2021. Program disciplines include business, healthcare, exercise science, social work, criminal justice, education, technology and psychology. Wiley will support Methodist University across marketing, recruitment, student support and academic services.

“The partnership with Wiley certainly helps promote Methodist as a top-tier university with a great reputation for helping undergraduate, degree-completion and graduate students advance their educations and careers,” said Dr. Suzanne Blum Malley, Provost at Methodist University. “MU offers the same high-quality faculty and instruction online as it does with in-person courses, and Wiley walks alongside our enrollment teams to get that message out to prospective students.”

University of New Haven 

University of New Haven, located in West Haven, Connecticut, has partnered with Wiley to launch at least six graduate programs in esports business, accounting, healthcare administration, public health, counseling and cybersecurity – the first of which are launching in January 2021. Wiley’s services will be focused on supporting the full student journey, including marketing, recruitment, student retention services, and program design and development.

“The University of New Haven is widely recognized for leading-edge graduate programs across its five colleges,” said Dr. Mario Gaboury, Interim Provost at University of New Haven. “We are excited to expand our highly regarded online graduate offerings through our relationship with Wiley,” he said, “and we anticipate that these new programs will bring opportunities for growth and professional advancement to graduate students across the nation and beyond.”

With nearly 70 university partnerships, and four in the last eight months, Wiley Education Services is supporting both the rapid shift to online as well as meeting the steady demand from academic institutions to diversify their online offerings.

Wellfleet teams up with binx health to keep students safe and campuses

Wellfleet Insurance has teamed up with binx health to offer college clients access to easy at-home/in-dorm sample collection for COVID-19 testing using binx’s enterprise solutions for population health screening.

‘binx boxes’ are showing up in dorm rooms of thousands of students on Wellfleet’s college client campuses, offering school officials a quick, easy way to test a campus population, with oversight and test ordering by onsite university clinicians.

The model amplifies the power and reach of university administration in their efforts to test, track and trace the COVID-19 infection status among student, faculty, staff, and vendors. Students “activate” binx boxes online, complete sample collection in their dorms or at home, then drop off completed kits at centralized locations for lab processing. Results are rapid, often under 24 hours from sample receipt.

Wellfleet, one of the nation’s leading student health insurance carriers, worked with binx on behalf of client colleges and universities to deliver a first-of-kind platform that makes population testing a reality for the nation’s college campuses.

binx’s testing platform offers a unique, modular approach enabling tailored rollout and customized deployment based on university population needs. Serving as a “digital hub,” binx enables seamless linking of patients to university administration via clinician ordering tools, global logistics, at-home/in-dorm sample collection, viral trend analysis and reporting, rapid lab testing, contact tracing, and live customer service and support—all offered at an affordable, per-test fee by the university.

“As a health plan built exclusively for the student population, we know the unique challenges our client college administrators face,” said Drew DiGiorgio, Wellfleet’s President & CEO. “As clients face additional expenses with testing, we saw the need to help them find a fast, efficient, accurate, and cost-effective option.”

binx’s deployment in COVID-19 was adapted from its innovative platform for sexually-transmitted infections, which also serves the college health community with similar tools.

“The best healthcare solutions are convenient, motivate patients to act, and provide valuable insights to those on the frontlines of care,” said Jeff Luber, binx President and CEO. “To achieve those objectives, schools need tailored, technology-driven testing solutions that reach students and faculty where they live and work to keep in-person learning a reality.”

In addition to introducing clients to tailored COVID-19 testing solutions, Wellfleet has also adapted policies to help members, including helping to ensure student members aren’t saddled with out-of-pocket costs related to COVID-19, and enhanced coverage for telemedicine visits.

Gale Case Studies Launches to Help Higher Education Instructors Bring Social Justice Issues to the Forefront

Gale, a Cengage company, is helping college and university instructors develop and strengthen students’ critical thinking skills around contemporary social justice issues using historical content. Gale Case Studies, a new online instructional tool launched by the company today, provides faculty with teaching resources to help students critically analyze culturally relevant social justice issues through the lens of primary sources on topics such as LGBTQ+, race, political extremism and public health concerns. This new resource promotes the student growth of transferable, 21st century skills through an interdisciplinary approach that fosters the use of primary sources to interrogate social issues and develop inferences for the future. Read the Gale blog about why Gale Case Studies was created.

Organized by topic, each Gale Case Studies module consists of case studies created from a curated set of primary sources. The modules are interdisciplinary and can be used in history, gender studies, sociology, psychology, English or law courses to help students learn how social issues have evolved from people who have experienced the events first-hand. Through a complete case-based learning experience, students and instructors can access case studies, discussion questions and links to curated content in an online learning environment that’s designed with accessibility in mind.

View/download screenshots of Gale Case Studies, here.

What sets Gale Case Studies apart is its guided workflow that seamlessly integrates with learning management systems (LMS). This allows materials to be embedded into students’ learning experience without the need for a separate application, making it easier for instructors to align with course scope and sequence. The online format and wide range of content gives learners a destination to dive into topical issues, prepare for informed, course-related discussions and become more proficient at using primary sources for course projects and research papers.

With Gale Case Studies, librarians and faculty save time developing effective course activities by packaging the relevant primary source content with the case study. By modeling best practices for information literacy for novice researchers, students are able to develop inferences and practice their critical thinking skills with a focused set of primary sources before exploring larger research collections.

Intersectional LGBTQ Issues is the first module released today that offers a closer look at the history of the LGBTQ community and activism in the 20th and 21st centuries. It provides insight into both direct-action efforts such as ACT UP’s demonstration at the St. Patrick’s cathedral, as well as local activism aimed at reversing problematic policies such the anti-crossdressing laws and the lack of documentation about violence against LGBTQ people.

“Archives contain millions of documents which can be quite overwhelming, and sorting through all that material can be difficult and onerous. So, having these little case study snapshots can be a good starting place,” said Danielle DeMuth, Ph.D., associate professor at Grand Valley State University and the editor-in-chief of Intersectional LGBTQ Issues. “Gale Case Studies is an entry point into how important archives are, how we can use them, and how to be curious about what has happened in the past.”

Features and capabilities of Gale Case Studies include:

  • Curated Content: content is carefully chosen by an editor-in-chief and academic instructor who has thoroughly reviewed the case studies for accuracy and teachability.
  • LMS Integration: allows academic instructors to seamlessly upload content into their LMS, creating a streamlined learning experience for students who do not need to leave the LMS to find content. This also makes content compatible for remote teaching.
  • Guided Experience: students are guided through a workflow that models the process of analyzing a primary source beginning with the contextualization of a case study, then evaluates the relevance of curated primary sources, and ends with reflective study questions.
  • Focused Study Questions: discussion questions are provided at the end of the workflow to act as a prompt for students to critically analyze primary sources and topics.
  • Image Viewer: allows users to view the primary sources, such as images, hand-written letters or newspaper articles as they were originally published.

“It’s been said that ‘the past is never dead. It’s not even past.’ To understand today’s social issues, it helps to step back in time and see things from different perspectives. Gale Case Studies primary sources allow students and researchers to author their own interpretations of events past and present. By making comparisons and connections and engaging in dialogue, they can inspire cross-cultural awareness,” said Paul Gazzolo, senior vice president and general manager at Gale. “These rare and compelling primary sources and pedagogical tools are not only timely, but necessary for helping students construct new discourses and develop critical thinking skills.”
