Hi everyone - I'll be monitoring the chat so if you have any questions please feel free to type them in here!
Arleyna Loss

Should be enrolled shortly, but may not be yet. The request is out to add them.
Brittany Jade Reyes SV

Arleyna, can you please add me as an observer or co-teacher please? So I can add the link to the SV Canvas course for SV students? Or is this Canvas only or Pgh students?
Arleyna Loss
26:50
I'm happy to add you Brittany. We modeled it pretty much specifically after your existing course, and it's for any ECE student, but you're welcome to add to it.
Griffin Della Grotte

ECE student here, going to that canvas page shows me 'access denied'
Brittany Jade Reyes SV
27:50
Thank you so much!

Hi Griffin, per Arleyna's above message, you should be added to that course soon
Vickie Woodhead
29:36
I think you should be able to self enroll via this link as well: https://canvas.cmu.edu/enroll/RMEHRR
Griffin Della Grotte
29:59
That did it
Vickie Woodhead
30:09
Yay!
Griffin Della Grotte
30:26
No problem haha
Shawn Blanton
31:05
Maybe show the canvas site, JIm

I join this meeting a little late. Here, I want to know if we have any update about the summer course registration for summer internship.
Vickie Woodhead
35:36
Arleyna or Monique, do you have any guidance on the internship course for MS students?
Monique Moreland
37:21
Good afternoon- an email about MS CPT will be sent out after this session, but is listed in Canvas if someone would like to see it before I send it out
Biao Geng

Thank you very much.

this isn’t necessarily an ECE-dept only question, but not everyone has access to good WiFi (personally my parents/siblings are all working/schooling from home so that’s a lot of zoom going on in our house). would it be possible to encourage professors to have students not stream video of themselves, since it would greatly reduce the bandwidth of the stuff students would need to stream? Thanks!

If CPT sessions can be delivered via a course, what about OPT? It seems that the required OPT session would still be held on the date specified before as planned but will change from an in-person meeting to an online one…?
ADITI TRIPATHI
42:02
I have a question regarding extending mini-4 drop and register deadlines since we lost 2 classes at the end of spring break.
Vickie Woodhead
42:10
Tarana that is a great point. Maybe we can have someone on the department send out a note to our ECE faculty at least.
Vickie Woodhead
42:56
We haven't heard any updates on OPT - if you haven't already attended a session I recommend connecting with Elena Gruzdeva in OIE for clarification. I imagine that they are working on this as we speak, though.
Ruolin Zan
43:34
Got it. Thanks Vickie!
Vickie Woodhead
44:06
Aditi I know the Registrar was working on an updated Academic Calendar - I am not sure what the changes are going to be, but we can definitely find out
Vickie Woodhead
44:20
We can post an answer to that on Canvas, but I imagine there will be communication from the University as well
Nathan Snizaski
44:45
You should be able to set up Zoom such that when you want to raise a point, your video is 'unmuted' for the time that you speak. That could help to keep the class engaging without chewing up the bandwidth like if everyone had mics and cameras open the whole time
ADITI TRIPATHI
46:09
thanks

Just like Tom did a minute ago!

With the new grading policy, how would a grade of P affect my ECE QPA? Is it the same as a D?
George Whitfield - gwhitfie
48:37
Oh okay

Thanks!

For graduation requirement classes, like 18-500 or physics2, seniors still can graduate this semester even if they decided to switch to pass or fail, right?
Vickie Woodhead
52:09
That is correct
Vickie Woodhead
52:16
As long as you pass it ;-)

Fall 20 schedule release, registration, and TA hiring will proceed normally :) You'll receive email communication accordingly

Is there any predicted effect or considerations to be made in regard to degree accreditations?
George Whitfield - gwhitfie
54:47
Is the Course Hub going to have exams from this semester in the fall? I think they usually get rid of old exams at the end of Spring semester.
Yujun Lee
55:34
What about the graduation? Did CMU make any decisions how they will change it?
Griffin Della Grotte
56:06
I would also love to know if you have heard anything about commencement related things
George Whitfield - gwhitfie
