Wondering how the Virtual Class works? FAQ’s are below.
How will the interactive, virtual class work?
We will be using Zoom Meetings which is exceptionally easy to use. You will be given a URL link upon registration which will take you to the virtual classroom at the time of the event. You will see the facilitator on screen and will be able to see her computer screen, too. You will have the option of being seen as a participant, or not.
What are the system requirements?
Just about anything MOST people will be using, will work. Chromebooks will NOT be able to work with Zoom, I’m sorry! As long as the computer or smart phone was purchased within the last 15 years (some even longer) you will have no issue. You may also dial in using your phone, with or without camera. For more specific system requirements follow this link.
Can I participate using a mobile device?
Yes. You can use your smart phone with or without video. You can also just dial in with a regular phone for audio only (although I recommend having the ability to see the video, as well as hear the audio.)
Does my computer or phone need a camera to participate?
No. While I hope that most people will participate choose to be seen (because it’s more like a real classroom that way), you do not need to have a camera and even if you do, you can choose not to use it.
I live outside the United States. Can I participate?
