Happy to help answer any questions here!

Don't think that the second link works. Might want to check it.
Judd Hark

Worked for me, but thanks for letting us know.

If you remove the last ")", then the link works.

Thanks for testing that!

So, if the lecture I sent to the students before the lecture, and I use the scheduled class time for examples and q and a, when should I make the lecture available to the students?
Holly Zakos (she, her, hers)
28:21
Here is all about Panopto - it is lecture capture tool — you can make quizzes, have time stamped discussions, and see who has watched your lecture as well — it’s a great tool — https://confluence.cc.lehigh.edu/x/ARbTAQ

has there been any thought to canceling pacing break and leaving for thanksgiving the previous weekend? it makes scheduling easier
Catherine Ridings
30:47
Has there been a % set by the university for the allowed capacity of the room to be used for social distancing? I have heard anywhere from 15% to 50% but nothing official.
Thomas Rees
31:08
Mary Beth, I may be mistaken, but I thought that Lehigh announced it was doing that.
David Johnson
33:06
What percentage of students can be housed on-campus?
Heibatollah Sami
33:18
Is pacing break cancelled for fully online classes too?
Vincent Munley
34:12
If Pacing Break has been cancelled, will MW classes meet that Monday and TTh classes meet that Tuesday. Does this reduce the number of classes that meet post Thanksgiving
Hugo Caram
34:15
You can set lecture times and give the students and opportunity to ask questions during the lecture recording. Additionally you can post a PDF of your blackboard that the students can print (in addition of the lecture recording themselves.
Catherine Ridings
34:42
Yep!
Holly Zakos (she, her, hers)
35:21
Thanks Hugo!!! That is helpful.
Hugo Caram

The blackboard is generated using a cheap document camera and writing on an 81/2x11 paper,

How does the asynchronous component impact the targeted contact hours for a course?
Charalambos Marangos
42:15
If the recordings are zoom, where do you save the videos to make them accessible to students. The videos get deleted after 120 days.
kathleen hanley
42:39
Is the asynchronous part a substitute for one class period so one could have the synchronous meetings by splitting the class into two smaller groups some that either meet in-person (maybe Tuesday) or remotely (Thursday) to accommodate any students who do not come back to campus?
Steve Sakasitz
43:04
Charalambos, we recommend uploading those recordings to Panopto.
Holly Zakos (she, her, hers)
43:05

Mary Anne Madeira
43:11
This model significantly adds to the time students spend on each class outside of regularly scheduled class time, because “normally” the students would do the reading outside of class, but then lecture and at many of the activities would be IN class. So, how do we address that? Do we reduce the “in-class” time if we are adding to the time they spend on asynchronous work? I know that last semester students reported that after the move to remote, their workload really increased as professors added online activities in addition to regular class time.
Charalambos Marangos
46:17
are you saying that I can record a zoom meeting and use the panopto framework to upload the video?
Holly Zakos (she, her, hers)
47:14
Yes professor Marangos that is correct
Steve Sakasitz
48:16
Uploading videos through Panopto: https://confluence.cc.lehigh.edu/display/LKB/Uploading+Media+to+Panopto
Mayuresh Kothare
48:37
In this model, is there risk that if a student does not do the work outside of class, that they will fall behind? Many students do learn through lectures and so if the lecture portion is required "pre-reading", will that hinder the student's learning if a student is not diligent?
Heather Flyte
48:54
Would it be possible to address how synchronous work should be handled with students in different time zones?
Paul Salerni
49:25
In a class where the learning activity is the mutual analysis of a piece of work (a musical composition) that leads to the students writing the analysis of a different work or writing a composition based on what was learned from the in class analysis, there is no traditional lecture that could be pre-recorded. So is there still a requirement for asynchronous material?
Tamara Lambert
49:28
I'm not clear on the specifics of a "blended" course in terms of timing. If we do 2 videos of 15 minute lectures for one 75minute course-day, are we also supposed to meet with students for 75 minutes?
Charalambos Marangos
53:07
Thank you Holly for the answers. .
Holly Zakos (she, her, hers)
53:16
You have flexibility in your course design. Sorry the questions are coming quickly! We will definitely make sure to address them — if not now after the session!
Holly Zakos (she, her, hers)
53:28
My pleasure
Samantha Fox
53:50
Following up on reducing the content covered over the semester: if we have a course with 2-3 hours of readings assigned each week, should we reduce the readings to make time for students to watch our recorded lectures, etc.?
Miranda Teboh-Ewungkem
55:28
I will consider the recordings of live lessons and making those available as asynchronous learning? Is that right? If so, how do we handle recordings that involve student information-names and/or pictures?
Beibei Dong
55:59
If my course is largely discussion-based and concepts are best delivered in the format of live and interactive discussion with students, are asynchronous components (pre-recorded lecture) definitely required or can we just deliver mainly through live Zoom?
Holly Zakos (she, her, hers)
56:58
We have some zoom recording guidelines from Jennifer Jensen we can share…. Students should be asked if they are ok with being recorded and you should not keep their images to share semester to semester…
Steve Sakasitz
57:07
Miranda, they can be used without issue during the course of the semester only, however those recordings that contain student name/pictures should not be re-used in following semesters.
Miranda Teboh-Ewungkem
57:26
Thank you.

Thanks Judd!
K. Sivakumar
01:02:23
From R&P section 3.1.3 (page 73) 4): “The three-to-four hours of student effort per week per credit includes both in-class contact hours and out-of-class activities. The major parameters influencing the in-class/out-of-class division include the mode of instruction and the level of course.”
Holly Zakos (she, her, hers)
01:02:54
Thanks so much Professor Sivakumar!
Holly Zakos (she, her, hers)
01:05:26
We had a question about different time zones — I can offer that what we have seen as successful is given an open time period for due dates — IE students have 24 hours to complete the exam. OR professors have used the extended time option in course site for those student in outside time zones.
Charalambos Marangos

digital input device for handwriting, like what?
Charalambos Marangos
01:07:36
wacom of some sort?
Steve Sakasitz
01:07:49
An iPad would be one example. A Wacom tablet.
Steve Sakasitz
01:07:54
Or a portable doc cam.

01:13:05
Sure!
Dave Hinrichs
01:13:38
have a sense of time zone differences among our students would be helpful. Is Lehigh surveying students on their plans for the fall.... this might help provide this info
Charalambos Marangos
01:13:41
I have not found a way to grade math handwritten assignments. I would love to be able to write on my monitor with a pen, but I cannot. I cannot print 40 people's 8 pages weekly. Do you have a hardware recommendation?
Holly Zakos (she, her, hers)
01:15:08
Professor Marangos — yes we are working on this as well and I have this to share - https://confluence.cc.lehigh.edu/x/bgH5Bg
Barbara Pavlock
01:16:52
ARE POWER POINTS INSTEAD OF RECORDED LECTURES APPROPRIATE BEFORE THE IN-CLASS SESSION?
Holly Zakos (she, her, hers)
01:18:16
Professor Pavlock —I would say that yes. If you feel that the materials is covered in this format.
K. Sivakumar
01:20:21
R&P 3.7.1: Other than make-ups for missed quizzes/examinations, no quizzes or examinations totaling more than 5% of the final grade shall be given during the last five full class days of each semester except in those laboratory courses ineligible for final examinations.
Holly Zakos (she, her, hers)

Thanks for the additional final exams information — that is great!
