WE cannot understand Kurtis.
Ruth Delaney
35:33
any better?
Brenda Lyseng
35:47
no problems here
Carol Doerfer
35:57
Very muffled
Fernando Lopez
36:19
No problems here.. he is not crystal clear, but it is understood.
Felix Buxkemper
36:20
Sounds like he is in a well.
Ruth Delaney
37:49
so sorry for the sound quality - we'll troubleshoot for next time
Joanna Champney
38:19
It's coming through clearly for me
Ruth Delaney
38:25
hang in there for our next speaker, as we expect the sound to be different
Margaret Dizerega
38:27
In the recording, the transcript appears so that will be a resource after the webinar.
Felix Buxkemper
38:37
Better
Deb Stark
38:41
it's perfect here
Derek Lowry
38:41
Sorry for the sound. We'll have a recording of the presentation afterwards to share for folks to go over if they are missing anything.
Derek Lowry
39:20
Here's are some questions prompts to consider for speakers: What stands out about their comments? What questions does this raise? What do you want to know more about?
John Donnelly, PVCC
40:54
I am not even sure what technology options are available to use. These are great concepts but are there concrete examples of technological solutions that prison programs are using or have used?
Ruth Delaney
41:19
John - yes, we're going to hear from a few colleges on implementation next
Ben Jones
41:20
Can you post a link to the Ithaka results?
Ruth Delaney

thanks!!

Here's are some questions prompts to consider for speakers: What stands out about their comments? What questions does this raise? What do you want to know more about?
Fernando Lopez
45:42
Question for Andrea: How can we get the Security Side to collaborate with the Programs/ Education Side in order for all to understand the importance of this collaboration? Sometimes Security overlooks the importance of these programs and attendance may be hindered.
Fernando Lopez
47:10
A dedicated dorm for Education needs full support from Security and Classification to ensure student offenders will have this type of "privilege". How can this be addressed as an outsider?
Dr. Kimberlee Johnson
47:51
For Andrea: What learning management systems have worked well?
Ben Jones
48:19
Andrea, How do/did you handle site objections about putting all of the "model" people in one housing unit?
David R. Churchwell
49:27
I have been coordinating college classes behind the walls/fence since 2006. I try to get most of my classes through ITV but more and more, I have to use the web. This involves sites such as Moodle, Pearson's Publishing, etc. I control and monitor all access my students have to these sites.
John Donnelly, PVCC
50:19
The tablet/chromebook seems most conducive to learning. How can we find out more about who is using this technology and how it works so we can model this?
Ben Jones
50:51
David, what is ITV?
Fernando Lopez
50:54
How were you able to win over Security to allow Chromebooks in the individual dorms?
Margaret Dizerega
53:03
That is a great story. Thanks for sharing that Andrea.
Derek Lowry
53:16
Thanks, Andrea. That was great.
Christen Williams
53:35
Thank you for sharing!
Derek Lowry
54:32
Here's are some questions prompts to consider for speakers: What stands out about their comments? What questions does this raise? What do you want to know more about?
David R. Churchwell
54:43
Interactive Television. I have a polycom hooked to a tv with an external speaker. The college I work with now broadcasts through zoom on a dedicated line to my Facility. We are in live broadcast classes from the college and can interact with the class.
Ruth Delaney
55:21
Thanks David - where are you based?
David R. Churchwell
56:05
North Fork Correctional Center Sayre Oklahoma
Dr. Sam Hurley
56:13
Please share how many institutions are allowed to have internet access for their offender college programs. Btw, TVCC uses interactive video (ITV) on three of our units.
Krista Walker-Frederick
56:58
Rose State College uses (ITV)
Ruth Delaney
57:35
Sam - this is changing so much right now, we don't have a definitive count of who has access to the Internet in prisons
Ruth Delaney
58:31
What we're hearing is: more and more prisons are beginning to implement internet in different ways
Ben Jones
58:50
Do commissary type vendors incorporate LMS systems?
Ben Jones
59:56
I would strongly encourage everyone to start with the FAFSA website as a whitelisted IP address. It is extremely secure, meets a lot of security protocols. Once you prove an extremely secure Internet connection is possible via whitelisting, you can start to talk about use of other secure sites.
Margaret Dizerega
01:01:02
Great idea about the FAFSA website Ben
Ruth Delaney
01:01:12
Yes - great idea!
R. Edmonds
01:01:43
Todd, are you bringing in a digital library in the state of Ohio?
Ben Jones
01:03:14
I suppose there are some assumptions. You need a filtering system for student access and devices for them to access. In order to do FAFSA online, you need a unique EMail address (we have a good work-around for that).
R. Edmonds
01:04:33
Ben Jones, how have you all worked around the unique e-mail address FAFSA requirement?
Ben Jones
01:05:23
We acquire an EM from the college upon admissions. They use Google domain. Our site coordinators force the Email to forward all incoming mail to a mailbox address that we control.
R. Edmonds
01:05:52
Ben, thanks,
David R. Churchwell
01:06:52
When I enroll my students, they are automatically given the college gmail account. I work with the college IT, the account is disabled, and my college email is entered as a forwarding address. So, students are denied access and I get all course/instructor emails sent to it.
David R. Churchwell
01:07:17
I have to leave.
Derek Lowry
01:07:56
Thanks for attending, David. There will be a recording of the webinar for you to catch the QA session at the end and the rest of Andrea's presentation.
Margaret Burke (she/her)
01:08:31
That is such a cool idea!
Ammon Dunford
01:08:58
Can we get a list of the LMS's Todd Marshal mentioned using with all of his different institutions?
Derek Lowry
01:10:22
Thank you, Andrea!
Ruth Delaney
01:10:29

Canvas, Blackboard, D2L, Moodle
Ruth Delaney
01:11:14
Here's a knowledge bank, which has a range of resources that Vera and our partners in the field have developed: https://www.vera.org/projects/college-in-prison/knowledge-bank
Margaret Dizerega
01:12:20
Andrea - do you know whether other SCP colleges in Maryland were able to set up similar hotlines in the prisons where they work?
Andrea cantora
01:13:38
i Don’t believe so
Nick Nichols
01:16:29
todd, doesn't jpay charge for email in addition to tablet costs?
Brenda Lyseng
01:17:18
I've heard corrections partner mention Rachel - internet in a box?
Andrea cantora
01:18:53
We are looking seriously into Justice tech solutions Securebook, and the RACHEL server
Ben Jones
01:19:52
Brenda, we started with RACHEL. It was a good way to start looking at content delivery. It is static, so not the greatest long-term solution. It does have the advantage of showing people that you can "do Internet" in a secure way. It paved the way for us to use live sites like FAFSA.
John Donnelly, PVCC
01:22:42
We find that our students are distracted by the "drama" in housing units that do not allow for concentration and effective studying.
Roger Byrd
01:22:44
What limitations are on the dorm wifi?
Ben Jones
01:23:32
Is there a specific set of outcomes related to "education dorms" or is it just easier to manage?
Allan Wachendorfer
01:23:37
Holy Cross College in Indiana has an "education dorm" as well.
Margaret Burke (she/her)
01:43:00
Thank you!
Gene Loflin
01:48:31
Group 2 still had a lively conversation.
