### Overview ### This project site contains materials and protocols for a multi-institutional research project aimed at measuring instructional and educational effects of COVID-19 in higher education. The materials are open and available to anyone who wants to use or modify them. Among core institutional collaborators (currently Indiana University, Ohio State University, University of Florida, and Penn State University), the distributed research is carried-out locally and protocols may vary across institutions. [Click here to learn more about study methods](https://osf.io/n7k69/wiki/Methods/). Ultimately, de-identified aggregate research data from these data collection sites will be made public on this project page. ### Support ### The initiative is funded through a grant from [Schmidt Futures](https://schmidtfutures.com/homepage/covid/), a philanthropic initiative co-founded by Eric and Wendy Schmidt, by the Office of the Vice President for Research at Indiana University, and by Ohio State University. ### Similar Efforts ### There are obviously many similar efforts to measure and understand the impacts of in-person class suspension and campus closure on teaching and learning in higher education. These include the following: - [http://online2020.org](http://online2020.org) (Yoav Bergner, NYU) - Transition to Online Learning SWOT Study (Silvia Bartolic, UBC) - [Supplemental Items about COVID on BCSSE 2020 Web Questionnaire](http://nsse.indiana.edu/pdf/BCSSEcovid.pdf) (Jillian Kinzie, IU) - [Wieman Faculty and Student Surveys for Characterizing Online Teaching](http://wiemangroup.stanford.edu/background-online-teaching-surveys-4-10-20/) (Carl Wieman, Stanford) - [SERU COVID-19 Surveys](https://cshe.berkeley.edu/seru-covid-survey-reports) (Student Experience in the Research University (SERU) Consortium) If you know of additional efforts, please send them to [Ben Motz](https://osf.io/4sc67/) for inclusion on this page. ### Acknowledgements ### A running list of individuals who have supported this effort, but who are not project personnel, are listed on the [Acknowledgements page](https://osf.io/n7k69/wiki/Acknowledgements/).
