Dear Colleagues:

Thank you for your commitment to delivering an excellent academic experience to our students during very challenging semesters.

 Kean University has adopted Interfolio as its faculty management system. Interfolio is a secure, online collaboration platform that provides customizable tools to manage all of the documents, workflows, data, committees, communication, and outcomes associated with review-based academic decisions. The first module being launched is Faculty Activity Reporting (Faculty 180) which is an online platform for faculty activity reporting that will assist in accreditation, other reporting analytics, and feed into all faculty evaluation processes (Retention and Tenure, Promotion, A328, Sabbatical, and Lecturer Evaluations). Please carefully complete the Faculty Activity Reporting module.

 Some additional benefits of this module include:

·         the creation of a central repository for current and past teaching, scholarship, and service contributions

·         the ability to create a personal vita template

·         the opportunity to enhance collaboration among fellow faculty

Hi, Joy and Maria,

    I am trying to get familiar with the Interfolio and update my information. From the notice form VPAA office, the training of Faculty 180 is scheduled at 3:30pm on December 3, which is 4:30 am in China. WKU faculty and staff have to watch the recording of the training. The notice indicated that recording will be available in the Dashboard. I did not see a tab for training recording in my Dashboard. Will it be available after the training?

    What is the timeline for faculty to complete the Faculty 180?

    What platform will be used for lecturer evaluation that can pull information from Faculty 180?

 

 

The PURPOSE of Faculty Activity Report at 'CLOUD' service. 

 

Every year, Kean Faculty Members generally prepare more than 300 pages of Reappointment Application Packages that include Academic CV, Profile Information, Publications, and all relevant Faculty Activities. What if we can make the ARTP processes simple and easier at online with higher security? That is the idea of Kean's 'Going to Cloud' initiative of ARTP affairs. 

 

Aligning with the transformation to Online Faculty Activity Report for Appointment, Reappointment, Promotion, Tenure, Promotion (ARTP) and HR affairs, WKU CBPM Management, Global Business, and Marketing (MGM) faculty members proactively complying with the movement.

 

WKU VPAA Office guided us to complete the FAR Initial completion by End of 2020 Fall Semester ( December . 18, 2020) based on the communication with Kean USA. 

 

 

WKU CBPM MGM faculty members try to complete the initial inputs of FAR via Interfolio Faculty 180 platform by Dec. 18, 2020. 

 

Faculty Activity Report via InterFolio Faculty 180 Platform
 (Due, Dec. 18, 2020)

 

But the Due date for CBPM faculty members was postponed until the end of December 2020 at the CBPM faculty meeting on Dec. 08 because of time pressure of final grading.

Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR)

Also known as Faculty180, Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR) is Interfolio's module that collects validated faculty data sets for accreditation, compliance, and seeing the full picture of faculty contributions at your institution.

Activity

An activity is anything a faculty member does that can be tracked as a record of their career for data collection and use cases like promotion, tenure, or annual reviews, grant applications, or supplementing public facing profiles. Generally, this describes some type of teaching, scholarship, service, or professional development – the core activities of university faculty.

Form

A collection of sections to track data. There are two types of forms, profile and activity forms.

Profile Form

The Profile Form is the form that tracks personal information related to faculty user, such as contact information. Faculty control (most of) the data in this form through the FAR interface.

The Profile Form is always available under Profile on the navigation bar.

Activity Form

The Activity Form is the form that faculty enter their activities into during the year. It's configurable by an administrator at the client side, and is composed of sections.

There is one Activity Form that is always available under Activities on the navigation bar.

Section

A section is a type of faculty activity information that a university wants to track, such as teaching, scholarship, or service. Sections are made up of fields.

Activity Classification

Activity Classifications are additional metadata tags that allow units to supplement the fields with other data they want to track. They can be used in multiple sections and can be set to only show for particular units. These classifications can appear on reports or CV templates or be used to filter a report or CV template down to the desired information before it is generated. They are also used in accreditation reports. Examples of Activity Classifications include Committee Role, Book Type, and Scholarly Type.

Vita Template

Vita Templates display the output of the faculty's activity reporting. They are a collection of sections from both the profile and activity forms.

Initiated Activity Input Form

While faculty members always have access to the Activities form on their menu toolbar, Administrators may ask for updates periodically. To make that easy for faculty members, they initiate a period of input for a particular time period. When a form is used as part of this request for information, that is the initiated activity input form. It will be linked from the Faculty Member’s Action Items until it is either completed or the period for input has ended.

Faculty Account

Full/part time faculty and, if applicable, professional staff who teach, have access to input data on the Profile and Activity Input Forms. (This may also include Deans or other higher level academic administrative positions.)

Support Account

Access to assist faculty in the process of data input on the Profile and Activity Input Forms and/or to run reports. This type of account is intended for users who serve in a support role, such as a member of the Institutional Implementation Team, IT resources, administrative assistants, student workers, etc.

Unit Administrator

Unit Administrators will generally have access to particular administrative functions for their specific unit.

Administrative rights can be added to either a support account or a faculty account.

System Administrator

The highest level administrator is responsible for the database configuration and general upkeep. Software administrators have the top permissions in the system. 

 

 


Profile Input:

Please input all your personal profile information. 

 

(Profile example #1) Personal Information

 

(Profile example #2) Work Experience;  Degrees

 

 


 

Activity Input:

Please input all your school and/or professional activities in each section:

Quarantine Process

 

1. When you get off from the Airplane, You will be guided to an assigned Quarantine place. 

2. You cannot choose the place, but the Chinese Health Authority will guide you. 

Example of Flying to Quarantine.

 

3. Once you get into the quarantine place, you cannot get out of the place for 14 days. You must stay in a hotel room.


4. There will be very little accessibility of outdoor activities such as shopping or communication because you're a potential "Virus". :) 

 

8AM and 2PM, You must measure your body temperature and report it to a WeChat group that controls your quarantine. 

 

 


5. Quarantine expenses will be fully reimbursed by WKU. Please take the Fapioa (official receipt) from Quarantine place. Please show this to Quarantine authority to get Fapiao for WKU. 


6. You need to complete many documents and app requirements such as Zhejiang customs. Please be patient and please comply with the authority. Fortunately, Chinese authorities will be kind and gentle to guide you. 


8. Meals will be served by Authority (there will be limited alternatives if you can order external foods via app under the authority's permission). :)

Done (It will takes around one hour) 

 

 

Residence Permit Application

 

Residence permit, here is the guidance:

  1. Please go to medical center for body check next week (Jerry is also doing the check, I think it would be much easier if you can do it together with Jerry.) We were just informed the center only opened on Monday and Tuesday this week.  However, the opening time of the center keeps changing every week during this special period. We need to confirm with the center every Monday. We will keep you updated of the opening time for next week. 

  2. The center will be opening from 8:30am to 10:30am.  Following this the address of the medical center: 浙江省温州市鹿城区航标路87弄51号 (No.51, Lane 87, Hangbiao Road, Lucheng District, Wenzhou City)

  3. I have attached the photo of the building. You can take a taxi to the center and ask for reimburement from our university. Please remember to keep the receipt.

  4. The center is at the second floor of the building and you are required to take photo at the first floor through a bilingual self-service machine.

  5. You may need to pay 30 rmb for the photo and get Fapiao from the reception desk for reimbursment (you can pay it thourgh wechat or alipay, and please keep the spare photos as we will need it for residence permit).

WHITE PAPER: 2020 WKU CBPM's Online Course Development in Responding to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) epidemic in China.

Jan. 21, 2020,

A business professor (Dr. Jeonghwan Jerry Choi) at WKU CBPM got a strange message from his friend at the University of Kansas (USA) via Facebook. The message told that a strange virus outbroke in Wuhan, China. And the situation was highly incremental.  The professor prepared 100 medical masks to bring back when he returned to school in Feb. 07, 2020. 

 

Jan. 27, 2020,

WKU HR announced that 2020 Spring Semester would be postponed until Feb. 22, 2020 because of 2019 Nobel Coronavirus epidemic in Wuhan, China. 

 

Jan. 31, 2020: Donation for Wenzhou, China from International Faculty Members

WKU CBPM's international faculty members donate Medical Masks, Protecting Cloths, Medical Gloves, and Medical Goggles to Wenzhou City and Wenzhou-Kean University from South Korea (Dr. Choi), Philippines (Dr. Candy Chiu), Thailand (Dr. Somkiat) to show the global solidarity. These global donation activities are coordinated by Wenzhou-Kean Foundation (Mr. Meng Jun and Ms. Jennifer Lu) and WKU CBPM Office (Ms. Wang Yang).

WKU HR announced that "Please DO NOT return to Wenzhou before March 01, 2020" because of the incremental situation of the Coronavirus in Wenzhou, Zhejiang area. 

 

Updated Academic Calendar of WKU 2020 Spring  (retrieved in Feb,, 11, 2020:  http://www.wku.edu.cn/en/academics/academic-calendar/)

 

Feb. 04, 2020

In responding to the situation, Kean USA and WKU setup several principles. (Feb. 04, 2020: Brief from WKU CBPM Dean Dr. Cao Jiang) 

1. Student and faculty health and security come first. Currently, we have a government mandate not to start the spring semester by 3/1. The actual start will be determined by Kean USA pending the virus situation.

2. At the meantime we must serve our students, particularly graduating seniors who need to start to work or attend graduate school in June. 

3. As such we must prepare to start online delivery on Feb 24, and ready to deliver 5 weeks' worth of content (Mar. 27, 2020) in the next three weeks, and hope the epidemic is under control so we can resume in-classroom teaching at the earliest possible time. Otherwise, we have to be ready for full-semester online delivery.

4. Many business courses already have Blackboard (BB) online modules ready to go, while others need to be developed as we go. All faculty will receive extensive BB training. 

5. At the meantime, please do NOT send students traditional syllabi until future communications from Eric, because of their difference with online version syllabi. 

 

Feb. 10, 2020

Kean Online Team organized the "Kick-off meeting" Monday, Feb. 10th @ 8AM (EST) to help Online course developers to initiate online course development to ensure world-class education in the epidemic situation in WKU.

Responding to the Email from WKU Online Tech (WKU Online Faculty Training Spring 2020: Updates from the Leadership Team; WKU Online Tech - wkuonlinetech@kean.edu <do-not-reply@blackboard.com>; 12:17 AM),

These questions were raised (by Dr. Jerry Choi)

1. Instructors do not have any Grading authority at all? Why not?

2. I still do not understand why students and instructors must suffer from totally complicated DQ writing and grading. Can instructors have the full authority of grading? 

3. Unavailable students must be contacted by instructor, Not administrators? Why? 

4. Should we make two (2 hours) Live session per Unit? What is that mean? 

5. Instructors have or do not have the Class pace (speed) management or not? 

Should we complete each Units according to Kean Online Team? 

Then, what is the schedule of Unit completion?

To: 

더보기

For your information this email was just sent to all WKU students.  It is important that you understand how student concerns are being addressed.

____________________________________________________________________

Dear WKU Students,

We wanted to clarify some concerns that some of you have expressed.  They are valid concerns and we are glad for the opportunity to address them. 

Time Zone

All graded activities including discussions and assignments will go by US EST as this is how Blackboard is configured. This means that an assignment that is due Sunday at 11:59pm US EST this would equate to Monday at 12:59pm Beijing Time.  If your first post to the unit’s discussion question is due by Tuesday at 11:59pm US EST this equates to Wednesday 12:59pm.  There is a 13 hour difference.

Discussion Boards and Rubric

Discussions are very important learning activities in an online course.  They represent conversations that would happen in a typical face to face course.  In order to make the conversations as beneficial as possible so that everyone can learn from each other there are several important guidelines.  To earn full credit for work inside of the discussions in each unit the following elements are considered:

  1. Did the student post his/her initial response to the discussion question (DQ) by the second day of the unit which for Unit 1 is Tuesday at 11:59pm US EST.  The discussions are not tied to the live sessions.  You can start your responses before the live session happens. Please consult the Course Dates document in Course Information which lets you know what is due on every day of the semester for exact dates. (Timeliness)
  2. Was the student response to the initial question posted by the faculty member a good response?  Did it answer the questions? Did the student support their arguments with facts found in the readings or elsewhere? This shows the faculty member that you have been really thinking about the topics.  Please note that in most cases there is no right or wrong.  This is more about effort.  (Quality) 
  3. Did the student participate fully in the conversations?  Conversations are meant to happen throughout the entire duration of the unit.  For Unit 1 this is seven days from Monday to Sunday.  It is up the student to decide which days he/she will participate on as long as the first post is done by the second day of the unit.   For example a student can post on Tuesday (the initial response) and Wednesday and Friday.  Another example is a student posts the initial response on Monday but interacts with others on Saturday and Sunday.    Students have flexibility on what days they post.  (Frequency)
  4. Did the student respond to five peers/the instructors during the unit? Discussions are meant to be highly interactive.  This is where you can show what you know and learn from each other including the faculty.  You are required to respond to five peers throughout the unit.  Remember these are conversations similar to what you would have as if you were in person.  You are simply talking (writing) to each other.  (Interactivity)


Each discussion question is worth 15 points per week and you will be evaluated based upon the factors noted above.  You should work with your faculty member to make sure that you are on track with meeting these requirements.  The rubric (assessment criteria) that is being used is attached. 

Assignments

In each online course you will find at least one assignment per unit.  You should begin working on your assignment(s) as soon as the units open.  Your assignments are not connected to when the Live Sessions happen.  Communicate with your individual course faculty member regarding assignment requirements and grading related issues.

Workload

Online courses are built to be equivalent to face to face courses in terms of workload.  They have the same learning objectives and required number of hours associated them.  Your faculty built your courses taking these factors into consideration.

For a three credit course, there are three hours of work within Blackboard per unit.  This is equivalent to the three hours that you spend inside of a classroom.  How this equates in Blackboard is 1 hour for the Live Session, 1.5 hours for discussions (DQs) and .5 hours for navigation (moving around the unit). 

In a typical face to face students are recommended to spend 2-3 hours for every credit taken doing things like homework and readings.  For a three credit course this means 6-9 hours of work outside of the classroom.  In our online courses we expect the same. 

So when you take into account what happens inside of Blackboard and outside of Blackboard this means 9-12 hours per unit of work is to be completed.  For some students it could be less and for some it could mean more.  This is a range. 

Time Management

Based upon the amount of hours you need to spend in your courses and the work you have to complete Time Management is super important for your success.  There is no room for waiting until the last minute to complete any of the planned activities.   It is important for you to stay ahead of your work and if you need assistance from your faculty member ask for it right away.  Your faculty member might not know you are struggling until you tell them.  Don’t wait until the last minute in a unit to express your concerns.  Make sure to begin your work in a unit as soon as it starts.

Contacting Faculty

Your faculty understand the importance of communicating with you.  In each course there are several ways for you to reach them including “Ask the Instructor” for general questions, “Messages” for private questions and “Live Sessions”.  Faculty members have been asked to respond to your concerns within 24 hours.  They need to be your first point of contact on anything related to your coursework.

If you feel that you are not getting the responses you need to continue your work and meet your deadlines then you should reach out to your Dean.   Below is a listing of those Deans who have been given access to your courses, for monitoring and assessment, for you to contact if this happens:

Dean Cao Jiang, College of Business and Public Management

Dean Raquel Stuart, College of Liberal Arts

Dean Larry Brown, College Science and Technology

Dean David Mohney, Michael Graves College, Architecture

Associate Dean Rose Gonnella, Michael Graves College, Design

Live Sessions/Connectivity

In each unit of the course your faculty member will be providing a 1 hour live session.  While attending the live session is suggested it is not required because it is recorded.  We recognize that many students are taking multiples courses and this could create conflicts.  It is up the student which live session he/she will/can attend.  Attendance during these live session is not taken and it does not factor in the grades.  If you have connectivity issues during the session you rest easy knowing that your session has been recorded.  Your faculty member will provide for you in the announcements a link to the sessions as they have been recorded. 

Grading

Grading will not happen until the unit it over.  The first unit ends on Sunday March 1st so do not expect grades right away. Grading for each unit needs to be completed by the faculty five days after the unit has ended.  Keep in touch with your faculty member via Messages regarding any grading issues you have about your grades.

 

We realize that online learning in such a structured environment is new to many of you.   We encourage you to work with your faculty to help you progress through your courses.  In the meantime we will continue to listen to your concerns and provide any explanations necessary so that you can be successful.  Your faculty will also be provided with a copy of this letter so that they are aware of what you have been told. 

We wish you a great semester!

Email (from Jerry to Stephen, cc: CJ and WKU Online): April 29, 2020. 

This issue was started when Unit 16 course structure was changed to Unit 15 structure in Mar. 07.

You can see the below Email. 

 

WKU online team then requested for changing Unit 14 and 15 only like this guide.

 

However, I am suggesting "Adjustment" of Unit 9, 10, 11, 12 ,13, 14 ,15 as attached file in this Email because I need to comply the grading policy as we had. 

 

According to the original plan, we must have 1000 scores from 16 DQs and 16 AS as below.  

 

In order to meet the well-distributed 1000 score demand, I must change grading scores (DQ and AS) from Unit 9 as I am suggesting in the attached file. 

But WKU online is "negative" to my suggestion and just orders me changing Unit 14; 15. 

This is an issue between an instructor and WKU online. 

Can you please give us a practical resolution? 

If that so, I will cooperate by all means.

Preparing for Fall 2020

Dear colleagues,

The rapid transition to remote instruction due to the COVID-19 pandemic has been a challenge to all of us. We quickly acted to ensure that our students successfully complete their Spring 2020 coursework and can continue on their academic paths to degree completion. I truly appreciate those who demonstrated commitment to our students, which was evident as you swiftly pivoted from face-to-face instruction to virtual modalities. You helped our students navigate extraordinary challenges while you and your families faced similar ones. You should be congratulated; the University and I personally thank you for stepping up and making this transition possible.

While I wish the road ahead was an easier one, it may not be. We could not expect what happened this spring, and we cannot predict what fall may have in store for us. COVID-19 not only imposed severe hardships but may also impose a level of transformation on the nation, and especially on higher education, that we could not have imagined a few months ago.

Yet, we must now prepare for the possibility of an equally challenging summer and fall. As you know, we are already preparing for online course delivery for both summer sessions. Now is also the time to prepare for online course delivery for Fall 2020. No one can predict the public health situation in September 2020, so it is both necessary and prudent to prepare for the worst-case scenario and hope for the best. Whether instruction for Fall 2020 will be delivered online, face-to-face, or back and forth between the two as a hybrid of both modalities, preparing each course for online instruction would be inevitable. Further, such preparation will improve and enhance delivery of quality education by ensuring consistency and robust assessment of student learning outcomes.

To ensure the best possible instruction and learning outcomes for our students, all summer and fall courses must be prepared using Blackboard following the process developed by the School of Online Education. That is, structuring every course in units and every unit clearly delineating its learning outcomes and associated assessment leading to the overall assessment of the course. 

The School of Online Education will continue to provide faculty with examples, technical support and training to achieve certification. Only those so certified will be assigned teaching responsibility for Fall 2020 courses. We must be prepared to offer courses on a single platform – Blackboard – using a uniform pedagogy for course delivery.

The course content you deliver will be driven by the curriculum course outlines. Your course must conform with the approved course outline and learning outcomes. Your can improve each course further with your creative capabilities, your experience and your knowledge of the subject matter. By so doing do, you will produce learning outcomes that are both elegant and innovative. I am sure with your commitment to the mission of the University and the success of our students, you will find novel ways to further enhance your course and the learning experience for our students. I am confident that your enthusiasm for the material and the personal touch that you add will expand upon what you do in the brick-and-mortar classroom and will continue to inspire our students even more.

For some programs that have been offered by the School of Online Education and for some courses that were prepared for Wenzhou-Kean University this spring semester, this work has been mostly done, but for many of the courses we plan to offer in Fall 2020, this work must begin now. Your deans and the School of Online Education will provide you with resources and guidance to get started. Many of you have completed or are completing the School of Online Education training in preparation for summer offerings.

Please note that all faculty scheduled to teach courses in Fall 2020, at all Kean campuses in the U.S. as well as WKU, must successfully complete training for online education on the Blackboard platform by June 30. This required training can be completed in approximately 10 hours.

We will supplement this training and will provide additional direction during this year’s Faculty Activity Days and Professional Development Days. They will be held virtually to enhance your capabilities and increase your skills in online course delivery. We are ready to help, so please reach out to your dean, the School of Online Education or my office if you need any assistance. We are all in this together, and together we will meet our obligations to our University and our students.

Finally, in an effort to reduce the financial burden our students bear to continue their coursework, I strongly encourage you to use Open Educational Resource (OER) material. You know most of our students take on more than one part-time job to pay their tuition. You can pay it forward by using OER in lieu of traditional textbook materials and other instructional materials. The Learning Commons staff stands ready to help. Your deans will have details to share regarding the process.

Thank you. Be well, stay safe.

Undergraduates can select up to two classes from the Spring 2020 semester to have a "P" (pass) or "U" (fail). A "P" represents a grade of C or better. A "U" represents anything below a C.  The "P" and "U" grades will not affect a student's GPA. Students must get the approval of their faculty advisor on the courses they choose before the change is processed. Faculty advisors will meet virtually with their advisees who wish to do this to make sure the courses they are selecting are eligible for this option, and will not negatively affect their progress toward their degree. After the meeting, the faculty advisor should email the request and student's information from their Kean University or WKU email account to the Campus Registrar, Ms. Dianne Mohammed at mohammedd@wku.edu.cn for processing.

Course that are not eligible for the Pass/Fail option:

ENG 1430 ENG 4817 MGS 4999 ACCT 2210 MGS 4998

Frequently Asked Questions

1.  Can a "P" grade be recalculated if I retake the course? 
Answer:  A "P" grade cannot be recalculated because it does not have numeric value as an A, B, C, D or F grade.

2.  Can a P/F grade be removed from my transcript?  
Answer:  Grades cannot be removed from your transcript.  Recalculated grades are applied to your overall GPA, but all former grades remain on your official transcript.

Please contact the Office of the Registrar at registrar@wku.edu.cn with any questions regarding this notice and discuss your P/F options in detail with your academic advisor.

July 28, 2020: Four Types of Courses in Fall 2020

Important Information About Kean USA: Fall Registration and Courses

1. Face-to-Face (F2F) 

2. Hybrid

3. Remote

4. Kean Online (ONL)

더보기

As the Fall 2020 semester approaches, it is important for all students to understand the methods of instruction that will be offered at Kean as well as the process for registration.

*Please read this entire email as it contains important time-sensitive information. If you have not already registered for your Fall courses, you are strongly encouraged to do so as soon as possible to avoid any potential late fees.


The University will be offering four different types of courses in the Fall:

 

Face-to-Face (F2F): These courses will be delivered mostly on campus with some resources augmented by Blackboard. Most classes will meet face-to-face during the normally scheduled days and times (with few exceptions) until the Thanksgiving break after which all course content and activities will be conducted remotely using Blackboard.

Hybrid: These courses will alternate between F2F and online sessions. While the number of overall class meetings will be the same, there will be fewer in-person course meetings than online sessions. Blackboard will be used to supplement the F2F instruction and coordinate any remote instruction. Students should expect to access course content during regularly scheduled class days and times either in person or remotely (synchronously). Courses will meet exclusively remotely through Blackboard after the Thanksgiving break.

Remote: These courses are provided 100 percent remote through Blackboard. No on-site class meetings will be scheduled. Students should expect mostly synchronous instruction, meaning students will regularly login to Blackboard to access instruction and activities happening on the scheduled course days and times. Additional activities posted to Blackboard will be used to supplement the instruction.

Kean Online (ONL): These courses are designed and offered via Kean Online. They are offered asynchronously using Blackboard and do not have specific meeting days and times. ONL courses are very structured and have specific schedules for each unit. Courses are constructed to allow maximum flexibility for students to be able to complete class activities across a number of days, at any time. Most ONL courses are offered over an eight-week schedule (there are exceptions).

Students are strongly encouraged to register now to ensure the best availability of classes.

The University is in the process of classifying all courses in KeanWISEYou will receive an email in early August notifying you to review the instructional method of each of the courses on your schedule. The method of instruction offered may vary by location (i.e. Kean Ocean, Kean Skylands, etc.), so please review your schedule and the classes offered by location carefully.

After reviewing its instructional method, if you wish to add or drop a course you will be able to do so without financial or academic penalty until the add/drop deadline on September 8. For more information about registration, visit the Registration Information page on Kean.edu.

If you wait beyond August 12 to initially register for any courses, you will be assessed a late registration fee of $105. If you wait to initially register after September 1, you will face a late registration fee of $210 (Note: State Unemployment Tuition Waiver students must wait until the last day of add/drop to register).

If you have not completed or updated your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) for 2020-21, now is the time to do so. Your financial aid counselor is available to meet with you remotely, especially if there’s been a change to your FAFSA due to COVID.

The names of your advisor, financial aid counselor and the other members of your Kean success team are available on your Student Experience account. To log in, use your Kean email username and password.

We look forward to welcoming students back for the Fall semester.

2020. 09. 02 Eric Yang's Guide to Creating BlackBoard for 2020 Fall Classes

 

Please note that unlike the spring online courses, building of course contents on the BlackBoard needs to be done by our faculty (but not School of Distance Learning). Here is important information that is helpful to your class building:

(1)   Contact Daniel Chen (chenyiyu@wku.edu.cn) if you like to copy existing Blackboard courses (created in spring or summer, or created by Kean USA colleagues) to the same courses (or for multiple sections of a course) offered in fall 2020.

(2)   For building your conversion book content to Blackboard shell: signs in on BlackBoard, a course named “Bb Conversion_WKUFall2020" is listed as one of "My Courses".  Go to this course, and find step 8, in which video tutorials will guide you to learn how to build the courses to the Blackboard.

(3)   Each instructor has the ability to edit their course availability dates in Blackboard.  They can be edited under course properties.

 

 Here are the steps:

 

·  Change Edit Mode to ON

·  Go to Control Panel

·  Expand the Customization section

·  Select Properties

·  Under Set Course Duration

·  Change the start date.  Note: days and times are Eastern US time.

·  Click Submit.

        Please ask your ED or dean for any additional questions.

        I am looking forward to seeing you all on campus soon!

Eric

Kean University starts using a new Course Evaluation system (campuslabs.com) from 2019 Fall. 

And WKU CBPM faculty members need to use the brand new course evaluation system. 

This is a short guide for our faculty members. 


Please Log-in with your Kean ID without @kean.edu. 

https://kean.campuslabs.com/faculty/   

If you input @kean.edu, you will get this error message. Please input your kean ID without @kean.edu. 

 

If you log-in you can see your courses. 

 

Please get the Direct Link(s) and Copy. 

 

Send an encouragement Email to students who enrolled each course! 

 

The school recommends us to exercise this strategy to ensure students' participation. 

  1. Set a date to allow students to take the online course evaluation survey in class

  2. Notify your students of the date in advance and ask them to bring a laptop, tablet or smartphone to class to take the survey electronically

  3. Email them the link to your course evaluation (you can get it from your Course Evaluations site)

 

Then, we can get course evaluations from students.

 



Reporting methods :

 

School sends a notification email of the Course Evaluation Report. 

 

 

Click the campuslab's evaluation with Kean ID/PWD

 

 https://kean.campuslabs.com/faculty

 

You can see the course evaluation summary report! 

 

Please Keep "PDF" results as soon as you get the summary report because the results will disappear from the system a few weeks later.  

 

Please keep the record and summarize your Teaching Evaluation for 'Archiving' or 'Reassignment' in another excel file. 

 

Qualitative Feedback is not mandatory to keep records, but we can learn something from it. :)

Guide for Advisement for Course Registration. 



Step1: Based on the Registration Office's information (commonly via from CBPM office), I summarize courses my advisee students should take in the next semester in the PPT. 

Step 2: I list up all my advisee students in Excel file (Sign Sheet: List, Email, Name & Sign space)

Step 3: Send Email student when they should come to my office to sign and get advisement

Step 4: When students come, I provide the prepared PPT file and let them sign on the sheet, commonly their English name). 



Step 5: Once I got all signs, I release their first hold before registration starts


Step 6: After the registration period over, and if a student has no problem, I release the second hold before the end of a semester.


**REMARKS: Since 2019 Fall, WKU releases the 1st and 2nd hold at the same time. 



*** In an inevitable situation like Exchange Program or Pandemic situation, E
mail advisement can be an alternative:  

Example of Virtual Advisement: 


An advisor guides students to send a "Confirmation Email" to him/her. 

Example: 


Confirmation Email to Advisor (xxxxxxx@kean.edu)


Email Title: Confirmation of Advice for 202x Winter / Spring Course Registration


This is [ English name:          Chinese Name (Pingyin):       student ID:                 ].

Vnect team will provide a mobile platform for "under-dog" users who create 'quality contents' but relatively submerged.  The company will proactively cultivate 'high quality contents creators' and expose them to the general public throughout innovative marketing services. The service will create 'mutual benefits' between quality contents users and contents consumers.

Finalist Notification 

Three finalist teams were chosen

Green Community Farming: 
Community or Urban farming is a popular social enterprise model in the US and Western Europe. The plan identified a unique niche for the target customer. However, the business model seems like a B2C, which may limit the growth of the social value from the business. Social enterprise model can be sustained and flourish if the model is deeply embedded on a specific community and local environment. The plan does not tap the aspect yet. If the plan can show the potential of B2B or B2Community, it will be more fantastic. 


HealthyBlender: 

The plan addresses a unique target market : Vegetarians; Muslim; Females; Healthy food consumers based on their marketing research and market analysis. And the plan proposed using S-ERP system for controlling function at the start-up. A smart idea! And the plan proposed a realistic financing and net income statement. The experienced team composition is a big potential for investment. 

Impressively, the team already established a Website and ready to operate. The plan follows the all necessary business strategy formulation processes. Financing strategies are reasonable. However, the target market and the need assessment are still ambiguous. For example, how large the potential market is not well identified for the customized design service from ‘novice’ designers. Targeting the whole campus of China is too ambitious to achieve a meaningful success at the first stage of a new business.
