You have both phone and computer going at once maybe.
Lesley Bonds
35:18
@mychael, yes - that's it! Thanks!
Justin H. Bell

Yesterday, I took my classes into ConferZoom in class; they used their phones or laptops. If you can do this, it will be a great help.
Dana Heins-Gelder
36:34
I did the same thing in all my face to face classes and they adapted to it very easily. We also set our notifications in Canvas to make sure they receive announcements in the way they like best.
Lesley Bonds
36:44
@Justin and @Dana, so happy to hear.
Sonya
37:31
yes. @dana @justin very happy. thank you.

The BC Choirs use the app “GroupMe” instead of “Remind”. GroupMe works better than Remind.
Brent Wilson
38:56
Agree with Nick. The BCAI club also uses GroupMe to communicate with each other.
Lesley Bonds
39:11
@CCB @nick Strobel @brent, good resources: GroupMe and Remind. I use a free Google Voice number to connect with students
Justin H. Bell
40:13
and they are amazing!
Mychael Phillips
40:41
I second google voice. It is great because you have a searchable text history accessible both on computer and phone.
Lovey Chahal
41:25
At DSPS we use Google Voice with our student workers as well. It works great and free.
Justin H. Bell
41:27
I've been using Google Voice for a long time. It's great because you can text, and the students don't have your number. They also don't have to download anything extra
Justin H. Bell
41:45
they really don
Dana Heins-Gelder
41:45
For an asynchronous video discussion forum, try Flipgrid (free!).
Justin H. Bell
41:53
they really don't abuse it either
Lesley Bonds
42:43
@Justin, I also like that I can type into google voice from a computer rather than text on a phone. It is more efficient for me.
Justin H. Bell
42:54
Thank you Jennifer!
Lovey Chahal
43:16
@Lesley I second that!
Dana Heins-Gelder
44:01
Anyone know how to convert a word file to a test bank for Canvas? All I can find is 3rd party software which requires a license.
00022437
44:49
So helpful, Jennifer. Thank you.
Chris Cruz-Boone
45:02
This is long but it is my syllabi policy for how to interact with me online:

Lesley Bonds
45:46
@CCB, love the clarity of this message.
Chris Holland
46:33
Thank you CCB
Jennifer Johnson
46:47
@CCB thanks for sharing CCB! Very good information in general!
00000274
46:49
I just cut and pasted your comment CCB. Thanks
Paul Murray
47:53
Zoom was taking 15 minutes to email meeting invites yesterday.
Lesley Bonds
48:25
@Paul, I think this transition is stressing the system a bit. I usually copy/paste the invite and send via outlook.
nickstrobel
50:04
Note that there is a digital divide in Kern County that some students have internet access ONLY through the school
sarawallace
51:36
Any suggestions for helping those students? (With no internet access)
Dana Heins-Gelder
52:19
Great point Nick. While campus is open, I imagine that they'll use the library commons. If we shut down campus, how can we help students who need access.
Justin Bell
52:19
depends on how long the library will be open I suppose
Chris Cruz-Boone
52:22
I had several students log into ConferZoom using 5G. It works pretty darn well and most students have smart phones.
Lesley Bonds
52:31
@nickstrobel @sarawallace: a few things: BC, including the library, will remain open (for now) with substantially fewer crowds
Chris Cruz-Boone
52:45
Tell your students to download canvas app & zoom app on their smart phones ASAP.
Lesley Bonds
53:17
@CCB, yes, download apps. I also recommend cam scanner apps so students can turn photos into PDFs to help them submit things
Dana Heins-Gelder
54:04
@Lesley Someone suggested Genius Scan yesterday, but I haven't used it yet.
Lesley Bonds
54:14
Other public spaces with fewer than 250 people are currently deemed suitable - of course this could change. Public libraries, Starbucks, even mcdonalds, have open wifi.
Teresa McAlister
54:34
Yesterday was my last F2F with students before transitioning to sychronous online class sessions. Thankfully, only 1 or two students were absent from class. I had the students download the Zoom app on their phones, showed them how to access from Canvas. In both classes, my screen was scribbled on. So, now I know to shut off annotations. AT Team - are you or have you created some short video instructions that can be sent to students or posted in announcements, etc?
Lesley Bonds
54:42
@Dana, I personally use CamScanner and love it. I haven't used Genius Scan but if it works like CamScanner I'm sure it's great!
Graciela Brehmer
55:03
Is it zoom or zoom confer?
Justin Bell
55:11
Make sure they set their notifications to be updated when you post an announcement, etc.
Chris Cruz-Boone
55:14
The best scanner app is device specific. I make students use a scanner in my f2f class. iPhone 11 has it straight up built in but my android uses adobe scan as best one. So they need to play around with it.
Lesley Bonds

ConferZoom (see it in course features on the left side)
Lesley Bonds
56:07
Keep up with instructional resources here:
john menzies
56:07
can you show a dvd via zoom?
Lesley Bonds
56:08
https://www.bakersfieldcollege.edu/covid19/instructional-resources
Graciela Brehmer
56:08
is there a separate confer zoom app?
Lesley Bonds
56:20
you can screen share with zoom, so yes, @john
ximena
56:20
Have been getting some mixed message about whether those of that meet f2f can require students to interact with us through Zoom video or not (due to privacy issues). I am thinking on using Zoom video for testing in which case I would need to see the students to ensure they are not cheating. So what is the consensus on this? Can those of us who meet f2f require video connections with students?
Mychael Phillips
56:30
Screen share the DVD playing on your computer.
Justin Bell
56:36
yep
Dana Heins-Gelder
56:37
@John, I've done it, but it's pretty flakey
Angela Hill-Crim
57:19
@ximena, from what I've been told we can't require video. I am being allowed to have an F2F exam next week, but that is the only time my class will be meeting
john menzies

I joined late--who controls whose faces are being seen on screen right now? I see four faces
Lesley Bonds
57:42
@mark Todd is almighty
Paul Murray
57:47
Are Zoom and Conferzoom the same?
Justin Bell
57:55
yes
nickstrobel
57:58
The DVD player app that comes with Macs does not allow you to share the video content.
Carlos Medina(CTE)
58:00
@Paul Yes
Stephen Waller
58:06
set up acct using conferzoom 1st then use the zoom app.
Lesley Bonds
58:35
Todd: question from @ximena: Have been getting some mixed message about whether those of that meet f2f can require students to interact with us through Zoom video or not (due to privacy issues).
Dana Heins-Gelder
58:59
I am trying to assist a colleague to convert her word file into a test bank for Canvas. Canvas doesn't appear to have a conversion capability. Anyone have experience with this?
Teresa McAlister
59:16
I remember when I converted my Zoom to ConferZoom it was a process. Is that still the same? I had to speak to someone on the phone to get my accounts linked.
00000274
59:22
Todd-
Mychael Phillips
59:39
@CCB To clarify, the breakout sessions are not recorded, correct?
00000274
59:45
Where is the place on confer zoom to use a video? Sorry, I missed some of what you said
Dana Heins-Gelder
01:00:10
It's the Share button
Mark Staller
01:00:25
Can I use ConferZoom without going through Canvas?
Dana Heins-Gelder
01:00:36
Yes
ximena
01:00:56
@Mark: yes download the Zoom app.
Graciela Brehmer
01:01:11
Pamela Rivers sent email about setting up Confer Zoom
Gian Mettifogo
01:01:23
ConferZoom is the CCC-branded version of Zoom. it is an upgraded account with extra features, but you need to set up your account using the bakersfieldcollege.edu email
Mychael Phillips
01:01:28
Yes, I got a response in less than 1 min.
Lesley Bonds
01:01:41
Thanks, @graciela. Yes, see Pam's email and the website https://www.bakersfieldcollege.edu/covid19/instructional-resources
nickstrobel
01:01:53
Matt Jones’ tutorial via zoom yesterday afternoon talks about how to link a regular Zoom and ConferZoom. See the recording of that workshop
Stephen Waller
01:01:55
@Mark set up account 1st in conferZoom through browser before using Zoom.
Chris Cruz-Boone
01:02:32
I do have students that also wear hijab and do not want to be recorded on camera. I say “I must see your face” but I take it by case-by-case basis and do not do anything that puts students under duress or challenges their beliefs.
Dana Heins-Gelder
01:03:10
@Ximena, I use Proctorio for online class exams
Neeley Hatridge
01:03:20
I had to convert zoom to confer zoom in the past. It was a very one day process then, but I anticipate longer conversion wait times, now.
Lesley Bonds
01:03:51
Thanks, @Nick: emphasizing this one: Matt Jones’ tutorial via zoom yesterday afternoon talks about how to link a regular Zoom and ConferZoom. See the recording of that workshop
Kenward Vaughan
01:03:53
I have complicated exams (writing/drawing required) that are not very amenable to online. Is there a possibility for giving a F@F exam for my small-ish class in a large lecture hall (forum or SE-56)??
John Chicca
01:04:17
Todd, please repeat directions to convert from Zoom to Conferzoom.
Brent Wilson
01:04:58
@Kenward One option maybe? Can you have students take a picture of the drawings then upload them to Canvas?
Lesley Bonds
01:05:20
@Dana recommended Proctorio
Deb
01:05:24
I have heard there are universities that will meet for finals week. I don't see that here but wanted to mention it.
Cara Warwick
01:05:39
Even though I linked from canvas to conferzoom it said it was not connected with canvas. No "green checkmark." I emaiedl support. I can't host a meeting until my request is approved. How long I wonder?
Angela Hill-Crim
01:05:44
Are synchronous lectures (live Zoom) required? Or can we record Zoom lectures and post them so that students can view them asynchronously?
John Chicca
01:05:47
Yes I did
John Chicca
01:06:11
Thank you!!!!
Mychael Phillips
01:06:48
@Cara Warwick. It was really quick for me. Less than a minute. It might be a little longer now.
Chris Cruz-Boone
01:06:55
If you have ConferZoom but its not appearing on canvas that is likely just a navigation settings issue.
Lesley Bonds
01:06:59
@angela: it's up to you - do what makes sense. Many are finding synchronous the most natural transition but if you are ready to move into an asynchronous environment, that is your call
Chris Cruz-Boone
01:07:20
Just go to navigation preferences and drag the zoom up into the view at the top. Email me or call Matt Jones its a 30 second fix.
Paul Murray
01:07:21
conferzoom.org also has online training, you can see the link after you log in.
Chris Holland
01:07:50
waiting to hear from Conferzoom now
Matt Jones
01:08:14
From Kathleen Rush: Will there be laptops available to students who need them? Faculty?
Mychael Phillips
01:08:46
In Canvas, Settings -> Navigations -> Scroll down to "ConferZoom"--> click enable -> save setting.
Stephen Waller
01:09:11
some publishers are allowing free access for students to online content until end of semester. check with your textbook publisher.
Teresa McAlister
01:10:11
FYI - for those wanting to tape video lectures. It was really helpful for to sit down with someone (thank you, Lisa Harding) who was familiar with doing it. Don't try to figure it out on your own. Conferzoom is a wonderful application for this.
Neeley Hatridge
01:10:14
Moving much of your class to Canvas, if you can, will be work, but remember, BBC it will save you so much time in future classes. The more you use Canvas, the more you get out of it.
Mychael Phillips
01:10:20
Getting textbook after campus closes for 8 week classes?
Chris Cruz-Boone
01:10:22
Can someone do a FAQ page from our chatroom?
Brent Wilson
01:10:39
Comcast is also providing free internet to low-income households for 60 days.
Lesley Bonds
01:10:50
Wow, great update @Brent
Graciela Brehmer
01:11:12
I have a student who says they still have a F2F class from another instructor at BC and cannot make it home to the computer in time. Is that possible
Chris Holland
01:11:18
yes to the FAQ for those not able to make this call
Lesley Bonds
01:11:43
@graciela, that student for now can use the library
Todd Coston
01:11:46
On the FAQ....yes, were are trying to do that with the session yesterday and this session.
Neeley Hatridge
01:12:14
Sorry for all the typos. I’m on my phone and moving too quickly :-)
Lesley Bonds
01:12:45
All, everything, including the recording of this video will be on our website https://www.bakersfieldcollege.edu/covid19
ximena
01:13:07
@Graciela: I think that is possible as not all of us have gone fully online. A suggestion is to advice those students to use the library and heaphones (maybe).
Chris Cruz-Boone
01:13:08
Lesley the chatroom will not appear in the recording.
Chris Cruz-Boone
01:13:15
Plus lots of questions and answers given.
Emmanuel Mourtzanos
01:13:24
In addition to the President's recommendation about Zoom, I also recommend recording your live lectures for the benefit of students who are unable to attend the class, or who would like to review content at a later date.
Teresa McAlister
01:13:34
Will the success lab and Library computers remain open for student access?
Lesley Bonds
01:13:47
Woops: all, we pull the chat archive and will post it along with yesterdays chat
Neeley Hatridge
01:13:57
@Mychael Phillips. I asked about this yesterday and it is believed that even if classes are closed, the bookstore would be open.
Lesley Bonds
01:14:00
@teresa, yes, for now
Dana Heins-Gelder
01:14:08
Will the student food bank still be open?
Lesley Bonds
01:14:12
@dana
Lesley Bonds
01:14:13
yes
Lesley Bonds
01:14:22
*For now
Lesley Bonds
01:14:35
Campus remains open
Mindy W
01:14:39
Has anyone thought about cleaning computer keyboards?!?!?
Mychael Phillips
01:14:46
@Neeley. Thanks
Lesley Bonds
01:14:47
@mindy, yes they are being cleaned
