Pandemic change is highly correlated with ice breaker ideas

Before COVID-19, it was hardly believed in Bangladesh that full class exam could be held online. But due to pandemic situation, everything changes. In Bangladesh, classes of schools and colleges will be suspended till September 2020, depending on the gravity of the situation as directed by our respected Prime Minister. Government is trying to ensure education through Sangsad TV. Some private TV channels also arranged the "Amar Patshala" program, such as Mohana TV for Monipui School and colleges.

Serhiy Kozmenko's guest post was published on the Cabells blog

We are pleased to announce that the “Guest Post: A Symbiosis of Predatory Journals and Authors: Is This Possible?” by Dr. Serhiy Kozmenko, (co-founder of the publishing company, Business Perspectives) was published on the Cabells blog on the 16th of April 2020.

“The illustration in the Nature article depicts a wolf (i.e. a predator) in sheep’s clothing, rendered as an academic journal. But is a researcher always the obedient prey of a predator? Is he or she always a sheep? The vast majority of authors likely fall victim to predatory outfits because of their own incompetence or lack of discrimination. But not all authors are sheep.

World against COVID-19. Our colleagues' thoughts about the situation: Valentina Okaru-Bisant

What is the impact of COVID-19 on the delivery of online higher education services in the United States of America and how can we turn any challenges into opportunities?

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, online distance learning and teaching existed in higher education. Val Okaru-Bisant, the author of this article, taught online and face-to-face teaching for several years. The global education technology sector, including online learning, was growing at a fast pace of 15.4% a year with heavy investments from many companies like Google and Microsoft1. However, only 3% of all educational expenditure is spent on digital programs2 and proponents of online learning are pushing for universities to increase digital expenditures beyond 3%, including using it to solve problems, create educational partnerships and expand global outreach3.

How we cope with Challenges of the Covid-19 Crisis at IEDC-Bled School of Management, Slovenia

One of our recent top programs at the IEDC-Bled School of Management, Slovenia, was on "crisis management". We would never have the opportunity or need to test our own crisis management capabilities. The same is with banks. They make stress tests, where there is no stress situation. They like to be prepared, but always on the basis of the former crisis, not the next. We survived the crisis in former Yugoslavia. When Slovenia, because of the 10-day war of independence in 1991, became a “no go area”, we had to relocate our programs with our professors to Austria. We managed to survive, though we had problems with the weathering the storm.

CRediT adoption for LLC “CPC” Business Perspectives”

Author Contributions

Since January 2020, all journals of LLC "CPC "Business Perspectives" adopt CRediT Taxonomy to identify and record the individual contribution of each author to the article in order to avoid possible authorship disputes and conflicts.

Not all roles can be used in the article and not all roles can be applied to all authors (that is, each author could contribute in several roles).

Since 24 of March 2020 We made CRediT machine readable with full meta-data available, CRediT it’s coded in JATS xml v1.2.

Some comments on the disaster’s impact on the teaching and learning process

“We be of one blood, ye and I”― Rudyard Kipling, The Jungle Books

Since March 15, 2020, the whole training process in all universities (and in primary and secondary schools as well) has been rechanneled to the online format. The new learning model allows drawing some conclusions about the process of education digitalization taking place in one of the leading Russian universities, Saint Petersburg State University, over the past year. The University (as did the whole of Petersburg, which immediately closed museums, theaters, concert halls, etc.) turned out to be deserted without students and teachers: no noise, no laughter, and no discussions in the faculty’s classrooms, corridors and dining rooms.
