Abstract: Providing incarcerated (Corrections) students with online college opportunities is changing the way students, family, and correctional system view education as a game changer. This paper covers developing online curriculum, adapting secure technology and integrating unique mobile platforms while providing learning opportunities for a group of students outside normal college-level education. Additionally, we provide insights on educating and training faculty, students, and staff on ways to provide engaging material and increase faculty/student interaction for mobile technology. Keywords: Online, mobile, Corrections, prison, technology, social, equity, gender, race, tablet, synchronous, asynchronous
