He started with a $3,000 camera lens

When Sean Willems, who teaches operations management and supply chain analytics at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, heard classes were going online this year, he decided to go all in. He spent most of his May and a few days in June converting a room in his house into a semi-professional video recording studio. More than 300 hours of work later, he'd developed the most sophisticated home set-up used by a university professor today. In an interview with EdScoop, he detailed the extensive project and admitted that while both he and his students appreciate what the studio can do, it still doesn't live up to the experience of an in-person education. Colin Wood reports.

UNCC adopts a unified security platform

IT security staff at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte said the adoption of a new tool has helped to more easily and comprehensively monitor users as they study and work from outside the campus. The tool, from Cisco, integrated many of the university's existing tools into a centralized platform. Jesse Beauman, assistant vice chancellor for enterprise infrastructure at UNCC, said the tool has allowed the university to easily and efficiently adapt to the changing dynamics of education during the pandemic. “Now we have a real live security ecosystem that’s flexible, that’s scalable, and more importantly, easy to use," he said.

Psychologists created a memory aid for contact tracing

Psychologists at Florida International University announced this week they’ve developed a website that helps people remember who they’ve recently been in contact with. Called CogTracer, the tool uses investigative interviewing techniques to help people who may have been infected with COVID-19 to more accurately list people they have been in contact with. Deborah Goldfarb, an FIU psychologist who helped create CogTracer, told EdScoop the tool is hoped to slow the spread of COVID-19, which saw upticks in universities that returned to in-person classes this fall. Betsy has the story.
