UC Berkeley build pop-up wastewater testing lab

The University of California, Berkeley set up a temporary laboratory where it is testing sewage water to spot signs of COVID-19 in the San Francisco Bay Area, the university announced last week. University leaders said the new high-throughput pop-up lab is helping health officials collect data on where the virus may be spreading, circumventing some of the limitations of testing people individually. “Wastewater naturally pools the waste from hundreds to even millions of people in a single sample, so if you can collect a representative sample of wastewater and analyze it, you can gain a tremendous amount of information that you likely couldn’t gain through testing people individually," said Kara Nelson, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at UC Berkeley.

What's more, WSU Chief Information Officer Sasi Pillay said, is that one-third of WSU’s students are first-generation college students who might not have access to all of the resources to fully engage with online learning. “We quickly realized that many students do not even have the technology,” he said.

Planning remote university courses? Harvard Business School Online has some tips

Institutions of higher learning were forced to rush their courses online this year, in some cases jamming curriculums that had been honed over decades in the classroom into a remote-learning format.
