Disclaimer Regarding Zoom Cloud Recording Retention Policy

Due to limited server capacity, all Zoom recordings are kept on the Zoom server for a total of fifteen (15) days.  After that, the recordings are moved to the Panopto Lecture Capture server and can be shared with the students via Classes.  Thus, students will still have the ability to watch the Zoom recordings throughout the semester.  The recordings are retained on the Panopto server for a total of three (3) academic years and are then deleted to reclaim storage space for new recordings.

HyFlex Model

One of the modes of instruction that will be implemented for the Fall semester in order to satisfy social distancing requirements will be the HyFlex model. In this mode, courses are delivered both in person and online at the same time by the same faculty member. Select classrooms on campus will be outfitted with a "Zoom Station," that will allow the faculty member to teach to a number of students in the classroom, while simultaneously teaching to a number of students connected to the class synchronously via a Zoom session. This model maximizes the potential for students to participate in a face to face course experience while adhering to the guidelines of social distancing. The challenge for the faculty in this mode is to ensure that both groups of students, in-person and online, are able to benefit from the same interactive learning experience. During these sessions, will we cover the basics of using the equipment and technology available in the classroom to facilitate this mode of instruction. Additionally, we will discuss best practices in pedagogy while employing the HyFlex model.


Upcoming Trainings

In-Person HyFlex Trainings

Educational Media will be offering in-person trainings beginning the week of January 27, 2021. You will be able to see the HyFlex Zoom Station in person. To sign up for a date, select the campus you would like to attend the training on and enter your full name in one of the available time slots.

Please note, that at this time the In-Person trainings are 30 minute long sessions. Due to COVID-19 and social distancing, we can only have 2 faculty members present in the room with the Ed Media tech at a time. More trainings will be added throughout the month.

HyFlex Classrooms

Class scheduling and room assignments are still being determined by OSA, the Provost Office, and Department Chairs. Therefore, the placement of Zoom stations is still to be confirmed and adjusted. We have provided the initial listing to assist faculty in the assignment process with their Chairs and Department Heads.
