Mihoko Luther

Many of my students have limited mobile data or no internet access. Do we know yet if and when the campus will have wifi available in the parking lot(s)?
Treisa Cassens
03:35:28
Mihoko we are looking to allow students into lot 1 in limited numbers (within cars) where the campus has added extra wifi. It should be done and ready within the next few days
JoAnna Schilling
03:37:14
Mihoko, our IT director, Peter Maharaj, and his team are working on adding wifi hot spots in Lot One. We hope to have an update letting students know how and when they can come to Lot One to access this wifi, while also limiting access on campus and keeping people safe. We will update you before you leave for spring break. Its coming!
Mihoko Luther
03:38:05
Thanks you, Treisa. That is great news. It's so sad to lose good students that cannot connect. Yesterday, one of my excellent students hit his phone's data cap during class and had to leave.
Ester
03:39:03
Mihoko, there are also internet providers that are offering services to students.

Marcie Kagawa
03:39:17
Also, until the college's solutions are ready, there are a number of internet service companies offering discounted service for low-income families. AT&T, Spectrum, and Xfinity are also keeping their public WiFi hotspots open for public use. There's more information about it here: https://www.cypresscollege.edu/coronavirus/faq-students/
Mihoko Luther
03:42:26
@Marcie, yesterday my husband drove around and discovered that there are no true Xfinity hotspots in our are or around Cypress. Rather than xfinitywifi they are cablewifi, which Xfinity rep said do not support the free offer.
Daniel Pelletier
03:42:55
It's amazing how many things our students do with just their phones!
Mihoko Luther
03:43:05
The Spectrum wifi hotspots did work. Thanks for the link.
Mihoko Luther
03:44:25
Daniel, I know what you mean. For so many students, the phone is their only internet access.
Marcie Kagawa
03:44:29
@Mihoko That's a good note. We appreciate the legwork and you sharing that information.
Paulina Garcia
03:46:43
hi, I had a question regarding the summer session. Will the students that plan to attend school during the summer also learn online as well?
Mihoko Luther
03:46:53
Thank you Dr. Shilling. That is very good news.
JoAnna Schilling
03:49:19
Paulina: we will be having a summer session and our hope is to do this in a traditional format, but we do not yet know. This directive will depend on how our state is doing with flattening the curve of the virus. We start our summer registration in a few weeks so would hope we might have news to share with you before your registration, but can’t fully answer your question right now because we just don’t know. We promise to keep you informed as well as we can!
Tori Felipe
03:49:41
@Paulina There are currently no plans to cancel summer classes. The tentative start date for summer 2020 registration is Tuesday, April 28. Students will be notified if there are any changes.
Nicole Zmetra
03:51:10
When will registration dates for Summer be sent to students?
Paulina Garcia
03:52:47
Thank you both for answering my question.
David Booze
03:53:19
Nicole, an email will be sent to students that includes registration information for summer within the next week.
Nicole Zmetra
03:53:50
Thank you!
Daniel Pelletier
03:57:10
I'm just so proud to be a part of this! Our people are so committed to helping students!
Treisa Cassens
03:57:15

JoAnna Schilling
03:57:27
What things are students struggling with that we haven’t addressed?
Michael Brydges
03:57:33

Monica Doman

If students have trouble logging in to databases, make sure and text a library for help!
Karima Berrada
03:59:04
Thank you everyone for all your efforts!
Cari Jorgensen
03:59:19
