    Thanks, Kelly. One student told me that they heard from the registrar’s office (I think that’s what they said) that they need to coordinate I/CV grades with their instructor. And I suppose it makes sense that if this policy were different than in previous semesters (which required instructors to assign the incomplete grade), we would have heard about it. So I’m moving forward on that assumption, and I have 2 students who’ve requested the CV grade so far.

    If instructors embed a YouTube video in their Sakai site or into another non-censored website, will students in China be able to see it? Sakai isn’t currently blocked in China, but YouTube is. Does embedding get around that?

    @GigiTaylor – I could be wrong, but I don’t think that will solve your problem (I think it would still be blocked). Your best bet in that situation would be to upload the video to Warpwire (you can turn this on in your Sakai site through Site Info > Manage Tools) and embed the video that way. If you’re trying to embed a video you didn’t create (e.g. you don’t have access to the file to upload to Warpwire), I’m not sure of a great solution.

    I don’t know what content China censors exactly, but in case you’re trying to get a file from YouTube to upload to Warpwire, you can download videos from Youtube with the open source youtube-dl program, available here:

    Hi,I start teaching tomorrow and both yesterday and today (Saturday and Sunday) I have gotten emails from Zoom telling me that attendees are waiting to get into a meeting. I’ve checked and the Zoom meeting times for my two classes are correct (i.e.not at. 11. p.m. on Saturday). Is this just eager beavers thinking it’s like Sakai. and they can log in early? I’ve given both classes the Zoom meeting numbers in advance.

    That happens occasionally and is nothing to worry about. Probably just someone who clicked the link accidentally, or to test it.
