Securus Technologies® is committed to offering educational opportunities to incarcerated individuals to help reduce recidivism and improve an individual’s success in reintegration into society. For this reason, Securus offers changemaking technology through our tablets which deliver a robust educational program that help incarcerated individuals transform their lives. A variety of education and betterment programs offered to agencies with the flexibility to deliver courses and videos to increase these opportunities for success makes it all possible.
Securus’ Lantern is the largest digital education program in corrections, offering a full-service education platform with the capability to support college courses, high school equivalency prep, GED prep, adult basic education, vocational and personal development content from a network of reputable academic partners. Lantern’s powerful technology can integrate with existing correctional education initiatives like traditional classroom learning or operate as a standalone education solution. In addition to Lantern, Securus provides thousands of free KA Lite educational videos with topics in Math, Astronomy, Accounting and more.
This technology-driven education platform is not only designed to increase educational opportunities in prisons, but its smart features also increase employment opportunities for incarcerated residents upon re-entry and reduce recidivism. Lantern features corrections-grade tablets and a learning management system which supports post-secondary programs with colleges and universities including Ashland University, Sinclair College, Rhodes College, Marion Technical College, Rockhurst University, Washington University St. Louis, University of Central Florida and Chaffey College.
Securus now has the power to take Lantern to the next level with the introduction of CourseShare. CourseShare is the first no-cost solution for corrections to share educational curriculum that can help incarcerated individuals in any facility. With CourseShare, agencies can give and receive custom courses created from respected peers and third-party content providers across the U.S. through Lantern. Incarcerated individuals can easily access and download content directly to their tablets to begin their path to successfully re-enter society. In the cases of Georgia DOC, Aleph Institute, R3, FreshSkills and Blackstone Career Institute, these are the courses that are currently available: ABE Math, GED Science Master, 10 Soft Skills You Need, and Weekly Bible Reader.
