  • 2023 EDUCAUSE Student Success Community Group Survey

    We would like to gather feedback from everyone to see what you, the community group,  want from the Student Success Analytics Community Group (SSA CG).  The SSA CG Steering Committee is dedicated to the success of this group, and we will use the results of this survey to inform the direction of the SSA CG.

    Student success analytics is a broad concept. As our community has grown, the steering committee has intentionally been inclusive by not limiting the definition of student success analytics. With that in mind, as you answer the remaining questions, please think of student success analytics in your context. 

    This survey is anonymous, so we thank you for your thoughtful, honest feedback.

    Our group authored such articles as "A Framework for Student Success Analytics", "Discrimination in a Sea of Data: Exploring the Ethical Implications of Student Success Analytics", "A Rubric Accompanying the Student Success Analytics Framework".


    If you'd like to participate in future similar projects, you'll find more information on how to do so in the survey.

    This survey should not take more than 5 minutes of your time. This survey will be open until September 22.

  • CCCG Monthly Meeting :Automated Transcription for Social Science Researchers

    Dear Colleagues,

    I hope this email finds you well and trust that several of you have had some opportunity to find time to relax and recuperate this summer.

    This Wednesday on July 26th, at 9AM PT / 12PM ET, we will welcome Emily Meanwell (Clinical Associate Professor, Sociology), Philip Berg (System Analyst/Programmer), and Alan Walsh (Principal Analyst, Research Data Services) from Indiana University to present on "Automated Transcription for Social Science Researchers". The description of their presentation is below

    Social science researchers frequently need audio recordings transcribed for analysis. However, third-party software and services often present both technical and security challenges. In this session, we will discuss the motivation and the technical implementation of the Automated Transcription Service (ATS). This simple and 100% serverless solution leverages cloud machine learning (ML) APIs and other cloud services to provide convenient and secure transcription capabilities for social scientists.

    As a reminder, CCCG holds monthly meetings on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 9AM PT / 12PM ET

  • Survey on Billing for IT Services May 2nd through May 15th

    Good afternoon all,

     We want to bring the following survey to your collective attention. The Communications Infrastructure and Applications (CIA) CG is sponsoring this survey to gather institutional financial approaches to paying for and life cycling key telecom equipment and services. The Network Management (netman) and Wireless Local Area Networking (wireless) CGs may also benefit from this data. The CIA CG steering committee and the financial working group will have full access to the data. The aggregate data will be publicly shared with the CIA CG and available for anyone to view.

     

    These questions assume you are knowledgeable or have access to obtain answers around the following areas below. Thus you may need to gather information from other areas of your institution for these question topics:

     

    Understanding of established annual budgets, and main source of funding; which services you have a charge back model or cost recovery funding model; equipment life cycle information, and any feedback (pro or con) for these models. 

     
    The survey is now available now until end of day Monday May 15, 2023 -  CIA - Unified Communications, Networking, and Telecom Billing Practices Survey - May 2023 and should take approximately 8 minutes to complete. 

     

    We will review all results at a future monthly virtual meetup.

     

    Thank you.

     

    --Mark Wehrle, CIA CG Team
