By the middle of March, during the height of spring break season, more than 1,100 colleges and universities in all 50 states had made the switch to distance learning. Online instruction introduced a new set of challenges for students. Gabi Gremillion, a sophomore architecture major at the University of Texas at Austin, said the amount of work she’s getting seems to be occupying nearly all of her time in quarantine. “I don’t think I could do this level of work if I were in actual college right now,” Gremillion said. “I don’t have a lot of time for things other than schoolwork right now, and that’s weird because it’s the only thing I’m doing.”Carissa Demma, a sophomore communications major at the University of Arkansas, said that although some professors are sympathetic to the new work environments many students are in, she also has professors who are going in the opposite direction. “I think they feel like they have to make up for the fact that students aren’t physically in the classroom, and their solution to that is giving us more work so we aren’t just logging on every three weeks to take an exam,” Demma said.In addition to the increased workload, Demma said she’s also struggled with being productive in quarantine, surrounded by distractions at home. “Obviously it’s no fault of my family,” Demma said, “but when you live with three other people again, and your mom and dad are working from home, and they’re both taking conference calls all day, it can be hard to find somewhere quiet.” In terms of Gremillion’s online experience, she said, “no one really knows how to do it, and all of the teachers have to prepare their classes in two weeks, which is probably hard for them.”UT is offering courses online for the remainder of the semester and announced April 1 that all summer session classes would also be online.The University of Arkansas also announced April 7 that all summer school sessions through Aug. 8 will be conducted online.

Stephen Appiah: I have the ability to coach Black Stars in future

first_imgFormer Black Stars Captain, Steven Appiah believes his refined man management skills make him an ideal candidate to handle the Black stars in future.Appiah served under former Black Stars head coach Kwesi Appiah as technical coordinator and is currently studying for his coaching badges.According to him, his captaincy and how he handled player related issues during his playing days speak to his understanding of players mentality.“In being a manager or a football coach, the most important thing is how to handle the players.“You can’t show the players how to play the game. The only thing you can show them is the system that you want to play or the way you want them to move on the pitch,” he said in an interview with Carol Tshabalala of SuperSport.“The most important thing is that you have 23 adults that have different egos, and you have to manage them.“I think I have the ability, being the captain for 8 years, and not having trouble with any player.”Only 4 former Black Stars players have gone on to become the team’s head coach, since Ghana gained independence in 1957.last_img read more
