Survey for Online Teaching and Lab Rotation for AY2020

Given the continued influence of COVID-19, the Graduate School is presently conducting a feasibility study of providing both courses and lab rotations online for some remote students from Term 1 AY2020.

We have seen that almost all courses can be taught online (apart from full lab courses).  Please answer the course questions as if you will be teaching a hybrid course, with some students in the classroom and some arttending remotely. 

Please complete the following questions by 10 am Monday, August 3.  The survey will take only 5-10 minutes of your time.

As we look to start the new Academic Year with remote students, they will need to complete a lab rotation in Term 1 of AY2020. We are asking faculty to try to offer some lab rotation projects entirely online. These may comprise theory projects, coding projects, simulations rather than lab work, or reading projects, but must include participation in the regular research life of the unit such as lab meetings and journal clubs.
If you answer "Some", please discuss any difficulties you foresee, and how these could be addressed.
If it is not possible to provide any online projects, please discuss why this is not possible.
Can you offer possible online rotation projects in your unit that do not require computing resources that are not available outside of the OIST network environment? This includes licensed software packages such as Matlab, Mathematica, Solidworks, and so on, or access to OIST centralized computing resources (Deigo, Bucket, and Dropbox).
If you answered "No" above, please describe the software or computer access required for full participation in your lab projects
