Quarantining textbooks adds new challenges

Some institutions — like Santa Fe Community College — have started quarantining textbooks as an additional safety measure during the pandemic. But that school's librarian told EdScoop that while students can get many of the books they need from a new digital service, many books remain available in physical copies only and the quarantine has made accessibility a greater challenge. "This has become an equity issue. How do we continue to provide the service to the students who need it most and who are bravely making the decision to be in school right now?” said SFCC's Valerie Nye. Betsy Foresman has more.

University technology trends in 2020

Survey data published by Educause last week showed that even before the pandemic arrived, students relied heavily on technology and IT services, but as the majority of colleges and universities have now moved classes online, students’ technology needs have increased dramatically. Educause’s 2020 Student Technology Report, which collected responses from more than 16,000 undergraduate students across 71 U.S. institutions before the pandemic and during its early stages, shows that technology issues like internet access, data protection and online accessibility were at the top of students’ minds even before the pandemic changed the way education is delivered. Betsy has the details.


There's nothing quite like the real thing

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 has the story.
