Chris Brim
49:32
Why is SOU playing games? Online or in person. Make a decision
Chris Brim
50:12
That is wishful thinking
Chris Brim
51:09
Every class should be offered online
Dave W
54:54
@chris Put the onus where is belongs, with everyone who dragged their feet with getting vaccinated or refused to mask up.
John Whitmer
56:17
Thanks to the SOU leadership for this thoughtful and responsive approach. This is an unprecedented situation and very difficult for everyone to deal with.
Charlie Zimmermann
56:43
Has anyone been able to find information on their classes? I have not seen any updates in the footnotes for any of my classes saying how it will be addressed. I don't really understand what it means to look in class schedule
Aimée Le Roi
57:20
If fire evancuations happen, will SOU be helping students who don't have family nearby or transportation such as a car?
Taylor Stotts
57:47
@Charlie I haven’t seen anything either, but I’d just email your professors and see what they say
Chris Brim
01:02:03
There is nothing that supports what you are saying
Chris Brim
01:02:46
Zero info on online classes
Matt Stillman
01:04:47
We're presently working on updates to the class schedule. It does not currently reflect all changes, what is moving to Remote temporarily vs. for the whole term, etc.
Emily Bergeron
01:06:40
When information about that classes are out will it be located in moodle?
Chris Brim
01:06:48
Great question
Matt Stillman
01:07:23
The class schedule will really be the best source for that information.
John Whitmer
01:08:15
@Matt, do you have an ETA for those updates to be made available? It makes a difference for when we’re thinking about heading to campus.
John Whitmer
01:08:34
(And thank you for providing the clarification)
Kelsey Middleton
01:10:16
Shouldn’t we be shooting for 99% vaccinated and up? This is a emergency level situation that needs to be taken seriously… with a strong stance…
Matt Stillman
01:10:17
Great question John. We're sorting out how to do so later this week. I expect major updates shortly thereafter, hopefully completed next week. Of course, alterations will keep occurring to individual courses after that, but at that phase it should be much more stabilized and clear.
John Whitmer
01:10:48
@Matt, thank you.
Molly Robinson
01:16:29
Does SOU encourage students to be peaceful towards others and keep the conversations respectful when it comes to issues related to medical issues such as vaccination status?
Anson Konstantinopoulos
01:17:07
Why would you not be peaceful?
Kimberly O'Toole
01:18:31
Thank you all at SOU for your information and for doing your best to keep our kids and yourselves safe.

How do we get information about remote class format? Will recordings be available or does student have to be online at scheduled class time?
Molly Robinson
01:20:25
Thankyou @Carrie Vath! That is a really helpful tip! I appreciate that.
Anson Konstantinopoulos
01:22:59
Do I need to ask questions here to have them answered?
John Whitmer
01:25:17
Thank you
