Academics

Faculty

Can office hours continue to be held via WebEx?
Yes, these hours can continue via WebEx. If having a confidential WebEx, select the button on screen that locks the room, so others are not able to join.
Can faculty continue to teach via WebEx in their regularly scheduled classroom?
Yes, the physical classroom is available to faculty at the regular class time. Our IT team stands ready to assist. For questions about WebEx, contact the Help Desk by emailing helpdesk@rollins.edu or calling 407-628-6363.
Do you have any recommendations on teaching virtually?
Follow Nancy Chick’s updates and her website, which is full of excellent tips on teaching virtually (https://www.rollins.edu/endeavor/covid-19/). This shift to virtual poses challenges for everyone, especially our colleagues in the lab sciences and expressive arts. If you find an innovative strategy, please pass it along to Nancy so she can compile and share with others.
After our students leave, how can we accommodate our students with time zone issues?
We understand that this is a significant challenge as we move into virtual learning. This will be hard, but is possible. WebEx also includes a record and share function. Office hours might need to be adjusted to support different time zones. We are asking that faculty be flexible for the remainder of the term.
EDUCATING OUR STUDENTS
What time will my class meet?
Your class will still meet at the same time as originally scheduled.

For students in different time zones:

  • Time Zone differences: Classes should be conducted at their regularly scheduled meeting time. We urge you to be considerate of students who are participating from time zones beyond Eastern, Central, or Atlantic daylight time. It is reasonable for a student to be expected to participate in class remotely from 6 a.m. to 12 a.m. local time.
    • For example, if your class meets at 9:00 am, it would be 10:00 pm in Japan. It would be reasonable to expect your student to attend via WebEx.
    • However, if your class meets at 2 pm, it would be 3 am in Japan. This is not a reasonable expectation. In a case like this, we recommend allowing the student to participate via recorded WebEx if they request this accommodation.
Can class be held at a time different from what is scheduled?
Your class should be offered at the regularly scheduled time. Though you cannot require students to participate synchronously during other times, you can hold virtual office hours or schedule meetings with teams at times that work for all involved.
Can asynchronous learning be used instead of synchronous learning?
The primary mode of instruction for all of us this semester will be synchronous, but some asynchronous learning might also be appropriate to achieve the learning objectives in your syllabus. A better framing for this question might be to say that you can assign some asynchronous learning “in addition to” synchronous classes
Can different sections of the same course, which are currently offered at different times, be combined into one section?
No. All sections should be taught separately.
Are there changes to College academic policies due to COVID-19 or virtual, synchronous instruction?
All academic policies remain in place; however, we are working on adapting processes and procedures (i.e. independent study forms) to respond to the constantly changing situation.

Additionally, international student visas require that we take attendance when in a virtual environment. Everyone needs to keep detailed attendance records for all students for the rest of the semester.

What if faculty are uncomfortable recording their WebEx class?
Classes are being prepared and delivered as a Rollins faculty member. The course content belongs to the College and should be shared freely with your students.

Students

I’m a student, will I log into WebEx on my regular class day and time?
Yes, although you will be logging in from an off-campus location, your professors will be teaching via real time virtual learning.
I tested WebEx in my class, but what if I have difficulty later?
Contact the Help Desk by emailing helpdesk@rollins.edu or calling 407-628-6363.
Where can I find my professor’s WebEx room URL?
Most of your faculty will have posted their URLs on your class Canvas site and many include it in their e-mail signature blocks. If you don’t have the URL for a class, e-mail your faculty member. If you need to get creative, here is a strategy that will work for most of the WebEx rooms: 

Try this approach https://rollins.webex.com/meet/XXXX where XXXX is the faculty member’s FOXID (the part of their e-mail address that comes before the @Rollins.edu.)

Can I join my classes on my phone or tablet?
Yes, you can join class by phone or your tablet. Install the Cisco WebEx Meetings app on your mobile device. When it is time for your virtual class, wherever you are, you simply paste your instructor’s URL into your browser and connect. Check the buttons at the bottom and click on both the microphone to mute it and the video to turn it on. Remember to unmute when you want to join the conversation.
How can I work with my classmates virtually?
You can set up your own personal WebEx room which will allow you to work with other students or simply chat and catch up virtually across the miles. Here’s how to get your own room launched: 

  • Log into WebEx on your laptop. If you are using a tablet or mobile device, access WebEx via the mobile app.   
  • Locate the URL for your personal meeting room, which is located above the “Start Meeting” button. This is the link you will share with others to access the meeting.  
Besides classes, what can I use WebEx for?
WebEx will work for office hours, library consults, and many other interactions with campus offices.
What other resources are there to learn more about WebEx?

International & Study Abroad Students

As an international student, who is my point of contact?
International students with travel questions can contact the Office of International Student & Scholar Services, Jenifer Ruby at 407-691-1158.
Has the College suspended travel to certain locations, or canceled any study abroad programs?

The College has now cancelled all outbound international travel affiliated with the College for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester. In addition, all spring semester study abroad programs have now been cancelled. Most of our partners are allowing students to finish coursework online; however, if this is not possible, Rollins College will make academic accommodations for spring semester students to allow them to finish the semester and stay on track towards graduation. The College has also cancelled our outbound May field study to Japan.

At this time, all other summer study abroad programs and fall semester programs are anticipated to be operating normally, although we have made some itinerary adjustments to certain summer programs.

This is a rapidly evolving situation and we are closely monitoring the situation through a number of channels and consulting regularly with our Travel Risk Committee and other on campus. The position of the College in regards to international travel may change as we continue to assess the potential risks to our students.

What will happen if study abroad programs are cancelled?

The Office of International Programs will work closely with students should we need to cancel any programs. For any field study or summer programs, withdrawal fees will be waived without penalty. For semester programs, we are working with our Finance Department and others on campus to determine a fair and equitable process for partial refunds. If the College cancels a program once abroad, International Programs will work with our insurance company and possibly the US Embassy as well to coordinate an evacuation. International Programs has emergency plans in place for this event and would follow protocols to get students home as safely and quickly as possible. In both cases, International Programs will cooperate with students and program partners abroad to ensure continued progress to degree completion. Please contact us if you have further questions: 407-646-2466.

What if I decide to withdraw from my summer or fall study abroad program due to concerns about Covid-19?
International Programs is currently working to minimize financial penalties for program withdrawals while also managing program budgets so that we can continue to offer programs to students who do not wish to withdraw. Please contact us if you are considering withdrawing from your program.

We expect that our Fall 2020 semester programs will be running normally. However, given the uncertainty, we are waiving withdrawal fees for these programs until May 1, at which point we will reassess. In addition, students scheduled to study abroad in Fall 2020 will also complete on-campus course preference forms through our office–if we need to cancel fall programs, the Registrar will use these forms to register students for courses on campus.

Crummer Students

As a Crummer student, who do I contact for questions or concerns?
Contact the Crummer Student Success office at 407-646-2210.

Working Remotely

Do I need permission to work remotely?

Yes. We are asking department heads and vice presidents of each division to set expectations for remote work in accordance with departmental needs, and to be as flexible as possible with schedules to enable employees to flex work hours around their family care responsibilities. We recognize that work from home is not possible for everyone. For those faculty and staff whose work requires that it be performed on campus, we will work to find the best and safest option for each case.

We ask all department heads to accommodate employees who are unable to be at work due to their own illness, or who must remain home to care for sick family members.

Health, Wellness and Preventions

What are the symptoms of the coronavirus?
Symptoms can include a fever (temperature above 100.3), cough, and difficulty breathing – similar to what you may feel with influenza or a bad cold. The incubation period (how soon the symptoms appear from the time of first exposure) for these types of viruses is typically 2-14 days.
How can I prevent infection with COVID-19?
There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19 infection. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
What are the College’s care/accommodation options for students?
If your student needs assistance with arranging accommodations in the coming weeks, please connect with the Office of Student & Family Care at care@rollins.edu. We understand that this is a rapidly evolving situation and want to support your student’s continued well-being and success.

What should I do if I am presenting symptoms and have recently traveled?
Any member of the Rollins community who has traveled to an impacted area within the past 14 days and is experiencing symptoms such as those described above should immediately contact Denise Snyder Assistant Director Wellness Center dsnyder@rollins.edu.
What is being done to help manage stress levels due to hurried arrangements? Are there any counseling services available?

During this time, the Wellness Center is not be able to provide ongoing therapy appointments. We are trying our best continue to provide services that remain helpful, while also staying within the scope of our practice and competencies. We are connecting with students and working with them to identify appropriate resources and develop an alternative care plan.

For stress management resources, campus members can access our Rollins Wellness Instagram site.  Students also have access to the Well Track app, www.welltrack.com, which is an online interactive self-help therapy tool that provides many resources for stress management. In addition, we are also developing online stress management workshops that we hope to soon be able to offer to students.  Information about our upcoming psychoeducational workshops will be provided to the campus community as soon as it is available.
