Hawai'i CC Support for Moving Classes to Distance Delivery

Note: This is a message sent by Leanne Urasaki on Friday, March 13, 2020 at 2:51 p.m. 
 
Hi everyone,
 
As you work to move your classes to a distance format, ITSO and Media Services have scheduled training and support sessions for next week. Below the schedules are additional resources and support available. We would like to strongly recommend that you prepare to hold your classes via distance delivery through the end of the semester. Although David Lassner has identified April 13 as a possible date that classes could return to campus, we feel it would be worth your time now to prepare the remainder of the term just in case.
 
In all cases, it is important that you contact and inform your students ASAP to let them know how your classes will continue after March 23, and also include instructions, if needed, on how to access the course (e.g., Laulima, Zoom).
 
Web Conferencing workshops
Web Conferencing Options: Polycom RealPresence, Zoom (request a license - limited licenses available).
All sessions below will cover both options, and will be videoconferenced to Manono, Palamanui and Kō. For room location at Kō, please contact Alan Ku at alanku@hawaii.edu, 775-8890.

Laulima workshops and in-person support
ITSO has created a simplified Laulima template that can be used to support classes that will be moving to a 100% asynchronous online format. If you are interested in using this template, please attend one of the template workshops next week. In addition to the template workshops, three additional workshops are being scheduled on Monday and Tuesday that cover many other Laulima tools. If you plan to use Laulima to support synchronous or hybrid formats, you may find it helpful to attend these workshops. Lastly, we will have a drop in lab open all week for you to come work and get help. For all workshops - please come prepared with as much content and materials as you can so that you can work onbuilding your classes at the workshop. The more you can bring in, the more we can help you get done.
 
All sessions below will be held in Hilo on the UHH campus in Building 346, rooms 134 and 135. Palamanui faculty are welcomed to attend the sessions in Hilo, or request one-on-one support (see list of contacts below).

    Other reminders:
    Per Chancellor Rachel Solemsaas' recent message, "our campuses will remain open, and most services will continue to be provided. Regardless of modality, UH and Hawaii CC are committed to completing the academic semester and enabling students to graduate on schedule." It may be helpful to remind your students that our campus resources are still available to them:
    • Mookini and Pālamanui libraries,  Hale Kea, The Learning Center, I Ola Haloa will continue to operate.
    • Online tutoring is available through Tutor.com and can be accessed 24/7 through MyUH Services. One-to-one live, on demand tutoring is available for over 40 subjects for FREE including writing assistance. Learn more on the Tutor.com page on our College website.
    • The Children’s Center and all Student Services will maintain regular hours.
    • UH Hilo student housing will remain open for current residents who have nowhere else to go. All student employees will continue their duties as normal and will be paid accordingly.
     
    Thank you,
