As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact educational institutions, universities are forced to adapt to a new operational structure. In order to measure the campus community’s readiness and needs for virtual learning and working, Wayne State University is partnering with the Michigan Moonshot to deploy citizen-scientist data collection efforts. The goal of these efforts is to provide accurate, unbiased connectivity data regarding which properties do and do not currently have internet access, as well as a realistic representation of current broadband coverage and speeds.
In this webinar, Wayne State’s Tom Duszynski and Merit Network’s Charlotte Bewersdorff discuss how the citizen-scientist data collection technique can be used to support broadband internet expansion efforts, and to help further inform the university’s remote technology support services in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
