Online Rave - Today!

by Richard Jones -

Hi all a friendly reminder we have the MIT Student Council Online Rave today at 1:00 pm!

Join Zoom Meeting
https://kaplananz.zoom.us/j/452359015

Student Council have all selected songs we will be playing with a quick explanation why this song is important to them ;)

Here is a sample from Joan Liau that we will chat about today!

“Stayin’ Alive” was one of five songs the Bee Gees wrote specifically for Saturday Night Fever

This song talks about much more than dancing and having a good time. It deals with struggles and aspiration; making your way in the world even after you've been kicked around. 

This is one of my favorite songs because it has a groovy vibe to it and it often makes people want to dance to it. 

A fun fact about "Stayin' Alive" was that it was used in a study to train medical professionals to provide the correct number of chest compression's per minute while performing CPR. 

The song has close to 104 beats per minute, and 100–120 chest compression's per minute are recommended by the British Heart Foundation.

Zoom in at 1:00 for a catch up, relaxing time and a break from studies.

Webcams

by Leonard Hughes -

Dear student

In order to properly assess your class participation in the online classes, and to ensure any in-class assessments are properly proctored, it is essential that you have a working webcam and microphone for your online lessons.

It appears that local retailers, as well as online retailers like Amazon and Ebay currently have a wide variety of webcams in stock.

If you currently have a webcam, you will be expected to have it on in class immediately, so we are able to start assessing your participation.

If you do not currently have one, you are expected to purchase and be using one in class by April 22.

This is an essential tool to help you fully engage with your online learning experience, as well as achieve your academic goal.


Ways you may be able to strengthen your internet connection

by Leonard Hughes -


  • Sit closer to your router
  • Connect to your router using an Ethernet cable instead of Wi-Fi
  • Turn off other devices using the internet at the same time (e.g tablet, phone, tv)
  • To ensure your internet connection is not interrupted or slowed, ask other people in your house not to watch Netflix or download large files while you are in the virtual classroom
  •  Contact your internet provider check if there are connection issues in your area.
