How classes will be run

Classes will be held using Zoom (an online meeting platform)

  • You’ll need to create a Zoom account for yourself (it’s free) – go to   https://zoom.us/
  • You will be required to enter a password and the Instructor will control who is allowed in the class by using a waiting room. This makes Zoom more secure.
    • When you use Zoom, you can turn your video on (so others can see you) or leave it off (so they only hear you)
  • All materials will be provided by email, before each class.
  • If you attend 4 of the 6 classes, you’ll receive a certificate of participation.

Please note:  this is the first time we have used an online format to teach these classes, so we appreciate your support as we learn how to best use this technology .
