Students are struggling to get access to computers and then fill out forms and such. For now, prioritizing students who are currently attending classes, then tackle those who aren't attending. Will lauch program with Fresh Success to share MyFi's to students. Haven't been able to get WiFi access to students on campus. Using combo of synchronous and asynchronous courses. Faculty are struggling to balance and get instruction, especially for part-time faculty. Instructional quality is declining. Students are getting frustrated. Faculty are not fulfilling requirements.Allison Tom-Miura WLACtommiua@laccd.edu

our counseling along w/our office hosts a zoom room during our open hours so anyone can reach someone anytime. THis is in addition to the phone. OUr college initially rolled out Cranium, but that technology has proven to be too difficult or tech advanced to access. We also have our student Career guidance counselors visit each synchronous class for the first hour in our ESL, computer and HSE classes to check in w/students to provide any non-instructional support to them (tech issues, counseling issues, etc.)

Technology has been one of the BIGGEST challenges. Many students just don't know how to use their computers. We have been able to provide a number of loaner laptops, but computer literacy has just been a challenge. From Tischel Diaz (Cerritos College)

Parents instruction is struggling. Struggling to support non-Spanish speaking parents. Putting together a taskforce to support students and match community needs. Application process is complicated. District is simplifying application process. Admissions and records working long hours to make it work. Progress is slow.OrangeRenee Dayrday@noce.edu

Technology is a big obstacle especially for our beginning ESL students, our beginning ESL classes have lower enrollment. We send a lot of information and resources to their student emails, but a lot of students don't check their student emails, I most are used to using their personal emails. Students also struggle accessing Canvas. We also offer multiple workshops via zoom but have low turn out, so we need to find additional ways to get this information to students.

Vocational Education class struggling to get full versions of licensed programs required for instruction. Students need the complete versions of microsoft office or office 365 because they do not have access to the tools to technology. A student confided that other school was able to download licensed version of software pre-covid, student not able to get same service from current school during pandemic.Martha Servinservinm@laccd.edu

Innovative practices:
11
Students didn't have access to full office 365 program software. Zoom allows remote access onto computer. Counselor was able to support student download the free version to their computer with this zoom feature. Was able to get students to download the software one student at a time.Mt SACMichael Ngomngo@mtsac.edu
12
We have a YouTube Channel and have instructional videos... such as how to claim their email account, how to log onto Canvas, etcMt SACMichael Ngomngo@mtsac.edu
13
Students struggled with digital literacy so counselor is offering tech workshops twice per week on specific topics. Use CARE funds to incentivize student attendance. Student confidence has grown as result. CuestaAmy Kayserakayser@cuesta.edu

Workshops and pop-in meetings to help students prepare BEFORE course begins. The classes help students prepare
15
Classroom visitis to check in and see if can help at all with issues. Along with recorded zoom workshops. More students watch recordings than attend live. Students call office and report watching videos.SBValley COllegeMaria Lopez

Challenges in equity & distance ed academically:
19
Students didn't know they had email. Limited navigation in Canvas and opening pieces slowly with scaffolding. Slowly unlocked as time went on. Play games on zoom with the teacher and parents. The parents become more comfortable being on camera. The games are silly and a not-intimidating space to open up.GCCBarbarabflynn@glendale.edu
20
Adult basic ed equity and audience issue. They are shy about being on camera. While one group is smiling and another is black screens. Engaging and rapport building is really challenging with black screens. Incorporating polls and such is difficult to get engagement.Jan Youngjyoung@glendale.edu
21
Using a smartboard to teach and I'm just talking by myself. Its crickets. Susan Prier

22
Encourage them to be on camera. Being on camera is ok. I want to see your face! I call on you if your camera is off so students started catching on.

Warm-up that is unrelated to content. It helps build engagement. The participants seem tired. An issue is that students don't want to show off their living conditions.North Orange Karla Frizlerkfrizler@noce.edu
24
Spotlighting my teacher video feed and announcing my video is spotlit to make students feel comfortable with camera on. Young women more likely to show their feeds.Gavilan CollegeKimberly Englandkengland@gavilan.edu
25
Formerly incarcerated students to get comfortable and milestone of just getting into zoom. I teach and lecture. I give time to do the assignment in class time. Students can take a picture with phone and send directly to teacher. Navigating canvas one-on-one tutor appointments are building confidence.West LA CollegeLauramanywelh@laccd.edu

2nd class meetings were struggling with canvas work and navigating. Walked through canvas together with student view to talk about submitting and replying.
