By Margo Kissell, university news and communications

As Miami University resumes in-person classes this week, faculty and students are shifting gears — just as they did six months ago when the COVID-19 pandemic unexpectedly forced everyone to move online.Brian Schultz

Brian Schultz

Brian Schultz, professor and chair of teacher education in the College of Education, Health and Society, (EHS) said his faculty are well-prepared in terms of their deep understanding of curriculum and pedagogy, so changing course is something they do well. But, he added, it isn’t easy.

Over the past six months, they have leveraged resources provided through Miami’s Center for Teaching Excellence, Office of eLearning and the Howe Center for Writing Excellence.

“Others have drawn from their own experiences developing online curriculum and pedagogy — many faculty have gone through significant professional development in this area,” he said.

Pain. Outrage. Demands for justice. 

Following months of racial unrest in Austin and across the nation, KVUE is shedding light on the roots and results of systemic racism in Austin in a two-night TV special.

Part one will air on KVUE Sept. 21 at 6 p.m., and part two will air on KVUE Sept. 22 at 6 p.m.



Chapter one
Looking back at Austin’s history of systemic racism


With the end of the U.S. Civil War, 3.5 million enslaved Black Americans would be set free. Even though President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation had been issued in 1862, which would eventually lead to the end of slavery in the Confederacy, it wasn’t until June 19, 1865 – the date now known as Juneteenth – that word reached Texas when Union General Gordon Granger announced the order to the people of Galveston, Texas.

Koolearn Technology: Leading Chinese Online Education Company (OTCMKTS:KLTHF)

Elevator Pitch

I assign a Neutral rating to Chinese online education company Koolearn Technology Holding Limited (OTCPK:KLTHF) [1797:HK].

The K-12 education business is the key growth driver for Koolearn Technology, and all eyes are its location-based live interactive after-school tutoring courses referred to as DFUB. Looking ahead, DFUB has significant room to grow via further expansion into lower-tier cities in Mainland China and price increases.

On the flip side, Koolearn Technology’s K-12 education business remains loss-making, and the company’s recent share placement could possibly suggest that its share price has peaked. Koolearn Technology trades at a premium to most of its online peers, with consensus forward FY 2021 (YE May 31) and FY 2022 Enterprise Value-to-Revenue multiples at 15.9 times and 9.9 times, respectively. As such, I see a Neutral rating for Koolearn Technology as fair.

Readers have the option of trading in Koolearn Technology shares listed either on the
