iPad or Chromebook for Students

If there are students in your classes that seem to be struggling because they do not have the needed technology, please encourage them to apply for an iPad or Chromebook at: https://www.citytech.cuny.edu/loaner/

If students need a laptop or a hot spot (MiFi) for internet access, please provide the information requested on the Survey Monkey site (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/studenttechneeds) so that we can also reach out to these students with targeted information.

Some potential guidelines:

1.     Student complains they can only attend class and submit writing assignments on their phone – they may need an iPad. Please encourage students to apply at; https://www.citytech.cuny.edu/loaner/  

2.     Students need access to basic cloud-based software. They may need a Chromebook. Please ask students to apply for a device at: https://www.citytech.cuny.edu/loaner/   

3. Your course has advanced software needs. Students may need to virtually log into campus computers. Laptops or Macbooks may be required. Please indicate their need on the survey.

4. Student does not seem to have reliable access to the internet or has expressed concerns that they have data limits on their plans which prevents them from accessing online classes or completing assignments. Please indicate on the survey that they need a hot spot (MiFi).

UPDATE: Lecture capture and video tools and solutions

…The easier and bestĀ thing to do is use the following statement:

Students who participate in this class with their camera on or use a profile image are agreeing to have their video or image recorded solely for the purpose of creating a record for students enrolled in the class to refer to, including those enrolled students who are unable to attend live.Ā  If you are unwilling to consent to have your profile or video image recorded, be sure to keep your camera off and do not use a profile image. Likewise, students who un-mute during class and participate orally are agreeing to have their voices recorded.Ā  If you are not willing to consent to have your voice recorded during class, you will need to keep your mute button activated and communicate exclusively using the “chat” feature, which allows students to type questions and comments live.

Faculty can:

  • send the statement to students viaĀ email
  • post theĀ statementĀ to BlackBoard
  • include the statementĀ in their syllabus
  • include theĀ statementĀ along with their Zoom invitation
  • post orĀ read the statement aloudĀ it before starting the recording
  • all of this

Please do not use the form.
