New Policies and The E-Learning Center

This morning in the Saturday Meeting the topic was on the E-Learning Center and the policies surrounding the platform. The general idea behind the Center is to free up calls to the Project Manager that seeks to side step the process. The bar-code on the newly design form will also enact with Gemini cyber security  and be more precise in detecting forms that have been altered.
When the form are completed and pass cyber security, potential program host will then be assigned to the E-Learning Center for courses on how to broadcast on the MCR stream. A sound recording of your commercial is to be sent to the MCR Studio to be placed in the MCR Library for upcoming release. Once the potential host has at the minimum of five episodes in the Library and upcoming launch date will then be placed on the stream.
If the show is to be a live show or a pre-recorded show will be determined by what was indicated on the form. The potential will be allowed to change the matrix only before the courses are complete after the training there can be no changing the matrix.
Potential host must pass the courses with at least 80% or will not be allowed to broadcast on the MCR stream.
For those individuals that have the potential to become Station Managers there will be separate courses on how to run a Station.
The E-Learning Center doesn't replace MCR-Global Support in any way but will hopefully diminish the need to contact support for minor operator errors.
The E-Learning Center is set to launch in mid-August on this year.
Rattler Publishing and Gemini will start writing the policies next month regarding the center and the new stream.
A test of the virtual studio is scheduled to next Wednesday. It is the intent of Rattler Publishing and Gemini to have one live show that covers current events on a weekly and weekend bases. Nasrene Muhammad and Ursula Turray have not came to an agreement on the style and matrix of the program thus far.
Rattler Publishing is also moving into the next evolution of publication and redesigning the way potentials literary authors publish their works through Rattler Publishing.
Gemini is working on a summer special for first time minority subscriber to their services.
David and William will be re-configuring the MCR website, but it is unclear of they will allow the chat option on the site which will enable listeners to post comments about the program while the program is in progress. In my best guess, I believe they will hold off on the chat option because it works better with a live show because no one monitors the room during pre-recorded programs.

MCR Security

I think its important that Gemini and Rattler Publishing tighten security on the MCR platform for various reasons. There has been multiple attempts at infiltration on all levels, but the security as held. But we can't sleep now, our enemies are constantly trying to put us on the defense, a place we refused to be. By tighten security and plugging security gaps or glitches it'll keep us on the counteroffensive playing field. Also in order to improve the process of Program host and Station Managers we are creating a virtual learning center; where, after being accepted to the platform information will be readily available and you can learn at your own pace and not feel rushed. This also will re-enforce the policy of having at least four pre-recorded programs in the MCR library before final approval for broadcasting. This also alleviates the need to contact MCR management for simple issues to could be solved quicker. The T-shirts will be on the site and available for purchase soon. We're working on a working model for economic empowerment that will be the gold standard, so to speak, that will serve as the basic model to build on. Rattler Publishing stands firm with the agreement with Gemini and is committed to Melanated Community Radio.
