FYI, for those of you with daycare flex spending accounts, you can email the American Fidelity rep to stop that amount from being deducted from your pay being that daycare for most may not be an option for quite some time. I just did this. Just a tip for those of you this applies to.
Lesley Bonds
38:40
Great info. Thanks, @Shae.

Faculty, Please let students know to visit www.bakersfieldcollege.edu/pantry to sign up for Drive-Thru services. They will choose a pick up time after they complete the form as well. If students do not have a vehicle, we can still help them. They can walk up to the pick up area, while maintaining social distancing. Thank you!

You need to use your tablet
Shae Flores
44:30
However, you can drop pin and type comments on their uploads
Kim Arbolante
44:39
@eileen I miss you and all your amazing SI leaders already! I loved listening to their SI sessions outside my office <3
Jennifer Johnson
44:58
@Erica and Shae, can you email the instructions and maybe academic technology can post for everyone
Shae Flores
45:07
Sure
eileenpierce
45:20
Kim, I miss that, too—I feel like I’m in the Twilight Zone.
Sarah O'Leary
45:24
You could use like a "snipping tool" to screenshot the image they uploaded and upload an image with the markings on it as a repost. As a suggestion. I don't know if you can upload a comment jpeg but if that's an option that'd be best.
Cynthia Quintanilla
45:47
Go ITT Pathway, I don’t know how you are making it happen for our students, but you are amazing for making it happen!! woot woot!!
Teresa McAlister

THanks Matt!
Lesley Bonds
46:23
@Ximena so amazing. Like you, I would've said no way can you move chemistry online 3 weeks ago. And here you are proving us all wrong. So awesome.
Christie Howell
46:25
Hi Yvonne!!
Bradley Cramer

Bradley Cramer
49:25
*the main campus Tutoring Center^
Christopher, BCSGA Manager of Student Activities
50:19
I believe the structure of a classroom should be imposed in the online platform. (i.e. uploading the lecture videos/YouTube videos/PowerPoint at or before the time of your scheduled class.)
Angie Horton
50:38
Thank you for all you've done for our department!
Jennifer Johnson
50:45
Kris and Yvonne- Great job!
Kim Arbolante
50:47
@Bradley, heavy lift with so many tutors and tutees! You're a super hero! <3
eileenpierce

@Bradley, I send that!
Teresa McAlister
51:48
@Kris - awesome job. I love that you are speaking to the whole person!
Matt Jones
53:08
Well done panel! So much dedication to your students and so many creative solutions
CWolf
53:21
What is the best way people have found to contact students? I have sent group and individual e-mails and only had a 60% return of students checking in.
Roy Allard
53:31
Yes! Very well done panel!
Sabrina Reyes
53:32
COMMENCEMENT!!!!
Lisa Escamilla
53:33
for those who were to graduate on may 15 will admission be emailing us to let us know what will happen?
Tom Moran
53:44
Kris: Great to hear about virtual photography. Kudos on your Dept communication!
Carlos Medina
53:48
@Sabrina It's been CANCELED!
Shae Flores
53:56
Canvas announcements is a great way to reach your students
Ximena Da Silva Tavares
54:10
@CWolf: I have been using Remind and Canvas announcements.
Carlos Medina
54:14
or postponed*
ConnnieG
54:20
Remind app is great
Lesley Bonds
54:26
@Carlos - it has not been canceled! We will find a way to celebrate the students accomplishments... it just wont be ON May 15 IN memorial stadium
Danyel Harris
54:26
THey are looking into virtual options for commencement
Michael Korcok
54:33
Can BC do anything apart from State Chancellor to allow courses without Distance Ed approval to be taught synch/asynch in the Fall?
Matt Jones
54:39
@CWolf here is a way you can even have announcements appear on the homepage of your canvas course
Matt Jones
54:40
https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-13115-4152682262
Kim Arbolante
54:43
@Todd that's called a gerund! A gerund us a noun that acts as a verb. Ex: "I googled it." #writingcenter
Sonia Avila
54:45
tutoring in the Southwest is also using remind
Teresa McAlister
54:46
@CWolf - I have started using Starfish to send short messages. I seem to get a better response than through email.
Bradley Cramer
54:51
Thank you @Kim. It's going to be interesting, but we will do our best!!! :) You guys are going to rock this too! Whoop whoop to our teams!
Shae Flores
54:59
LOL, thank you Matt
Shae Flores
55:02
on it
Dr. Nicky Damania
55:05
Hello Commencement is not Cancelled. I can assure you that we are, in fact, exploring virtual options, postponement, and more.
Jennifer Johnson
55:13
@Kim A. - Love it!!! LOL
Matt Jones
55:15
;) @Shae
Brent Wilson
55:29
Science question: How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pop? (Sorry.) Great job, Ximena.
Penelope Young
55:35
@Kim, thanks for clarification on gerunds!
Sabrina Reyes
55:38
Virtual graduation is not it!
Matt Jones
55:48
@Brent...one,two, three....three
Kim Arbolante
55:55
No worries folks! That's what I do :-)
Chris Glaser
56:00
@CWolf apart from our normal methods (email, Canvas, Starfish, etc.) I've seen some Faculty use some creative solutions like GroupMe or Remind (although Remind is clunky sometimes). It's easy to get people signed up on those platforms.
M. Bresso
56:00
@lesleybonds: are the stats regarding the growth of online education at BC reflective of only totally online courses or do they include hybrid courses?
CWolf
56:11
I have used Announcements; I can't tell if they read them. I will try Starfish, thank you.
Teresa McAlister
56:29
@CWolf - Also, Google Voice
Lesley Bonds
56:37
@Michele, it's distance ed which I believe includes hybrid. Bill Moseley/Craig, are you on here?
Penelope Young
56:39
@CWolf, make sure they have Notifications set up to receive Announcements to email.
Matthew Martinez
56:42
Thank you Sonya!
Ximena Da Silva Tavares
56:47
@Brent: Thanks! I think we should do a lab demo to find out the licks, you volunteer?
Teresa McAlister
56:53
You can text them through Google Voice
Eleesa Killebrew
56:56
Virtual graduation is not it!
Kim Arbolante
57:04
FYI: Dean Thorson has her whole org using GroupMe and we really think its helps manage the load of messages we are all getting. It also is a good option for those that may be using pre-paid phones or who have limited data plans.
Teresa McAlister
57:34
Will Summer School be online?
Grace Commiso
57:46
There is also starfish to contact your students. We can now do select all and send to an entire class at once.
Kim Arbolante
57:49
**pardon my typos. I'm still getting used to typing primarily on a laptop. I miss my big chunky keyboard!
Teresa McAlister
57:50
summer session
Lisa Escamilla
57:51
what about summer school?
Teresa McAlister
58:07
Bridge to BC?
Lisa Escamilla
58:10
summer semester*
Danyel Harris
58:16
I would assume that since they are talking about fall being virtual, that summer would be as well ;)
Michael Korcok
58:17
TY.
Kristopher Stallworth
58:19
I have relatively small classes so I have sent individual messages to students. Canvas also lets you target students that haven’t completed a particular assignment.
Roy Allard
58:35
Is there any communication going on about what Summer School will look like? I currently have 2 hybrid courses scheduled.
Lesley Bonds
58:40
@Lisa, We are watching it everyday, but it's possible the situation may not be resolved by summer. I hear @Kimberly Bligh is working on some ideas already for Bridge as the Plan B if it comes to that
Grace Commiso
59:25
@everyone. Starfish isn't just alert it's a messaging system. they are working on text messaging as well.
Isabel Castaneda
59:36
Bridge will happem
Christina Maldonado
59:40
Dr. Bligh has LOTS of ideas!!!
Danyel Harris
59:42
Google Voice is great and super easy to set up
Isabel Castaneda
59:44
happen. we are working on it already
Lesley Bonds
59:48
lol! Bridge team is amazing
Danyel Harris
59:50
Use it for texting or phone calls
Jennifer Johnson
01:00:12
@Michael K. Blanket DE approval will also be discussed at the curriculum meeting tomorrow.
Grace Commiso
01:00:36
@Danyel are u asking about Starfish? its email right now but text soon. phone numbers are available as well if you need then to call students
Armando Trujillo
01:00:46
The VA and pending legislature is also considering paying student veterans their full payment for attending courses online 100%. BC has assisted student veterans maintain their full-award by switching to online courses versus cancelling them.Great Job BC!! We are BC!!
Kim Arbolante
01:00:47
@christina Will the campus community still have the opportunity to volunteer as bridge "table mentors" even if there are no tables?
Victor Diaz
01:00:54
Go Summer Bridge!!!
Matthew Martinez
01:01:23
Thank you for letting us know we can access these videos
Lesley Bonds
01:01:24
@Armando, great update.
Isabel Castaneda
01:01:37
@kimArbolante, we are working on how that will look
Kimberly Bligh
01:01:46
Bridge is on no matter what! I am pulling my team together in April to set up Bridge to BC virtually if needed!
Debi Anderson
01:02:03

Can we address the need for consistency in structure. Allowing lecture needs to be at or before the scheduled class time
