All, this interruption is a new phenomenon happening across the country. Pam rivers warned us about it
Victoria Koiyan
25:14
we have been hacked
oliverarosales
25:17
Those must be the disturbing images that people were referring to
Shae Flores
25:21
May need to lock the meeting
Lucero Perez
25:23
man you serious?
Kim Arbolante
25:24
Umm did that really just happen?
Shae Flores
25:26
That’s unfortunate
Lucas Choate
25:37
No way to stop this, unfortunately
Krista Kmorelan@bakersfieldcollege.edu
25:40
I've heard about those hacks too.

Yikes!
Lesley Bonds
26:28
Yes, Pam Rivers sent an email to the campus about how to lock Zoom meetings to stop that from happening.
Angie Horton
26:37
If that were to happen in a class, how do you lock it?
Lesley Bonds
26:50
@Angie, see Pam Rivers' email. I will see if I can forward to you
Beth & Ed
26:53
Has BC canceled all possible summer plans at this time?
Pamela Rivers
26:54
Hi, Angie. We sent a message about how to prevent this
Angie Horton
27:08
I will double check in my e-mail, thanks!
Lesley Bonds
27:40
@Beth & Ed, not yet - focused fully on the immediate transition. You will know as soon as BC has made a decision
Todd Coston
27:40
@Angie In your Manage Participants section you can choose from a little menu at the bottom to lock meeting
Beth & Ed
27:50
I don't mean classes, just extra possible field trips etc.?
Angie Horton
28:08
Thank you, Todd!
Liliana Linares

Krista Kmorelan@bakersfieldcollege.edu
34:06
Gina, unknown how long! Possibly into summer
Lesley Bonds
34:16
@Gina, we don't have a firm answer - I don't think anyone in the world really does. What we will commit to do is tracking the situation closely and making decisions in the interest of student and community health.
Isabel Stierle
35:21
Some faculty are trying to get online. Can the system be unlocked temporarily to let them in?
Lesley Bonds
35:23
I've used it! AMAZING
Gina Hunter
35:45
Thanks. I was wondering if it was a couple weeks or longer.
Cindy Collier
36:18
All people should avoid going to urgent cares, doctor offices or hospitals. Use Virtual care, MD Live. It s ag great system
Krista Kmorelan@bakersfieldcollege.edu
36:42
Gina, at least throgh the semester. I don't think we'll be back in classrooms this semeseter
Marisa Marquez

Carlos Medina
38:49
@Todd if we generate a passcode for a Zoom meeting session, would that help prevent from unwanted guests to enter our sessions?
Zav Dadabhoy
39:16
Great message Andrew. AGREE!!
Chris Glaser
39:30
@Dena, this is awesome advice! I don’t always like being at home. I like being out and about, but routines and exercise really do help. Staying in contact with others is super helpful, too.
Craig H.
40:07

Students have told me the are liking the lecture by zoom they feel like it is more personal and one on one but also with a group. I have noticed way more participation in lecture via zoom that in person and way more interaction.

Debi Anderson
47:20
It's an awesome site!
rony Recinos
47:43
I even have students chime in and thank us for doing this because they are able to work with their families at home. Many have children that have now been sent home and they no longer have to worry about child care.
Dr. Nicky Damania
48:17
@rony, students are greatful that we are ahead of the game and faculty have been so understanding of their students during this time
Krista Kmorelan@bakersfieldcollege.edu
48:33
still witing on ccc confer to finalize my registration! Still no email!
Teresa McAlister
49:05
Just a reminder - students are feeling overwhelmed, especially those with higher units. They have shared they feel they have more work now than ever before and that is on top of the extra home responsibilities they have to take care of with kiddos at home. So, as many have said before, let's lead with grace.
Krista Kmorelan@bakersfieldcollege.edu
49:05
Luckily, students have been very patient!
Andrew Haney
49:20
Manny ROCKS!!
Dr. Nicky Damania
49:21

rony Recinos
57:30
What if we have equipment deliveries to our shops/labs
Lesley Bonds
57:50
@Nick, the construction crews will determine their own protocols. for now, it should proceed as usual
Bernadette
58:13
@tina it's bemartin@bakersfieldcollege.edu
Lesley Bonds
58:25
@Nick, but obviously no in-person groundbreaking...unfortunately.
Dr. Nicky Damania
58:26
@Nick, reference the email i sent you back regarding the constriction
nickstrobel
58:39
@Lesley: the groundbreaking ceremony was postponed but I hope they can still start construction

Kim Arbolante
01:00:39
What kind of information is being given to students about hard closure during spring break? Now that we are all online, will students understand that we may not be available during spring break?
Teresa McAlister
01:00:47
I wish you could 'like' chat comments!
Lesley Bonds
01:00:55
@Teresa, yes!!!!
Lesley Bonds
01:01:04
I keep double clicking comments. Millenial here.
Cindi Swoboda
01:01:05
What about Shipping and Receiving
Erica Menchaca
01:01:13
There is a feature in zoom that can be added to have "responses" to like and everything.
Dr. Nicky Damania
01:01:22
@Kim we will be sending emails and social media to students, but we will always be available to students
Lesley Bonds
01:01:26
Ah, leave it to Erica to find the solution!
Craig H.
01:01:28
That's a good idea (being able to "like" comments)
Emmanuel Mourtzanos
01:01:31
My thanks to everyone for your active engagement and support. It is an honor to serve such an amazing college.
David Koeth
01:01:45
Will the physical campus closure mean that the Renegade Pantry is closed?
Teresa McAlister
01:01:46
So, if we want something out of our office, get it tonight?
RENEE
01:01:58
Todd touched his face!
Dr. Nicky Damania
01:02:07
@Teresa, yes but call Public Safety
Imelda Simos-Valdez
01:02:08
Are we going to communicate with incoming students (current high school seniors)?
Lesley Bonds
01:02:10
@Teresa, you can come on campus after tonight but you must contact public safety, have your ID, and the officer will escort you to the building
Kimberly Bligh
01:02:13
What is the plan for high school high touch registration?
rony Recinos
01:02:21

Dr. Nicky Damania
01:02:33
Pantry will be open for next week for a bit: https://www.bakersfieldcollege.edu/pantry
Lesley Bonds
01:02:43
@Kimberly, I believe Queen Ashlea has a plan ;) "High touch" will now be fully "high tech"
Andrea Thorson
01:03:06
Our Writing Center is here to support students in an online form.
Erica Menchaca
01:03:09

Andrea Thorson
01:03:17

Dr. Nicky Damania
01:03:21
Don't forget we have Flu Shots for our studnets, have them email me and we can figure something out for them. we have minimal shots left
Teresa McAlister
01:03:25
Also, is there any information for current dually enrolled HS students and concurrent HS students?
Kimberly Bligh
01:03:30
BRIDGE WILL BE HERE SUMMER 2020!
Teresa McAlister
01:03:43
They may have difficulty without the support of their classroom teachers.
Lesley Bonds
01:03:46
