One Health Research-Training Panel

The world faces rapidly accelerating change that impacts human, animal, and environmental health. The complexity of these changes require professionals to adopt a One Health approach in which professionals work collaboratively and efficiently at the interface of disciplines and across geographic and organizational boundaries. To respond to these challenges the Center for Computational Intelligence to Predict Health and Environmental Risks (CIPHER) at UNC Charlotte focuses on genomics and computing technologies applied to microbiology, biological and human diversity, and health. 

Use of the One Health concept to build the capacity of professionals to engage in research to prepare for, respond to, and prevent disease is critical. CIPHER invites all scientific community, stakeholders, and decisionmakers to attend the One Health Research-Training Panel. During the panel, we shall discuss ongoing and future projects and opportunities in One Health in CIPHER and with partner institutions.

Automatic Video Migration Timeline
Which videos will get automatically migrated from your course? 

All course videos recorded in Kaltura will be migrated to Canvas Studio as long as the video has been watched at least 10 times in the last four years, since January 1, 2019. [Note: Zoom recordings will not be included in the migration to Studio.]

When will the video migration from Kaltura to Canvas Studio take place? 
Kaltura to Canvas Studio migration will take place after grades are due but before summer term begins, during the week of May 16, 2023. However, Canvas and Canvas Studio will be available for use during the migration process. 

Kaltura Available Until June 30, 2024
What happens to those videos that were not automatically migrated from Kaltura to Canvas Studio?

Kaltura videos will still be available for viewing through the entire upcoming academic year  (i.e., view-only mode, not recording or editing). That means all Kaltura videos will be viewable by you or your students in Canvas courses.  This overlap year will allow you ample time to review any videos that you wish to keep that did not get automatically migrated and to manually migrate them yourself before July 2024.
