QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Does this device come with an internal battery?
By default, the corrections edition device does not come with a battery. If you want the internal battery, you should be using the battery and not be leaving the device plugged in for long periods of time. This will degrade the battery and cause it to inflate.
Most prisons run 24H a day. Do yu sell an industrial grade unit or recommend one?

Hi Charles - we do. When we get into industrial or commercial-grade units, we customize the hardware to match the need (number of users, content preferences). They can run from $2,500 - $5,000. More info on our corrections website: https://www.worldpossiblejustice.org/
I'm considering Rachel for Corrections and would like to connect to content over a wired connection. Is it possible to connect this to Ethernet and disable the wireless?
Yes, you can also use our corrections specific devices which allow for 24 simultaneous WiFi connections. More info here: https://www.worldpossiblejustice.org/
I would like to learn more about a custom build of RACHEL (for Corrections) that interfaces with Canvas LMS. I recently acquired a RACHEL for Corrections, and want to know what the cost/process would be to add Canvas....
Hi Julie - The Canvas question is a bit more difficult to explain. We put together a webpage here: https://www.worldpossiblejustice.org/canvas-moodle-box
In short, it requires more advanced hardware than the RACHEL (for Corrections) offers to use the newest Canvas. I'm happy to talk with you about the Canvas box if you want!
Do you partner with a company that offers transparent laptops/tablets. Specifically for the area of corrections.
Hi Dawn - we do. Justice Tech Solutions makes a transparent laptop we utilize for our work in corrections.
Does the RACHEL-Corrections have the ability to interface with a LMS such as BlackBoard?
Hi Dawn - RACHEL-Corrections comes with a version of Moodle on it. We do offer a custom built version of RACHEL starting at $2,500 which also includes Canvas. We do not support blackboard. The custom built RACHEL hardware (RACHEL-Pro) is a much more powerful machine, without a battery in it, and only wired connections.
Hi, I lost a RACHEL charger, is it possible to get the charger only?
Yes, you can purchase one here: https://store.worldpossible.org/products/rachel-plus-additional-power-supply
Good afternoon. How can I tell if the content that is on a RACHEL-Corrections is actually the corrections version? Also, can you edit titles inside some of the content offerings (example is Saylor academy chemistry section) -Basically can we edit the modules and create a custom delivery of what we want inmates to see. Thanks, Steve Falconer
The easiest way to tell is that Corrections devices will not have Wikipedia on them.
You can edit the titles inside if you have some background in HTML. You can find more resources here: http://community.rachelfriends.org/c/content/creating-modules
Our RACHEL-Plus wi-fi not working and its less than a week old since we bought it. They are two of them and suddenly both lost the signals same time. What could be the problem and how can we solve it?
Hi Maria - can you reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your order number?
