Attending A Virtual Class

We host our virtual classes using Microsoft Teams. Teams is one of the fastest growing collaboration platforms available, and it’s easy to join your class using your PC, Mac, phone (iOS or Android), or tablet. Please read the instructions below to prepare to attend a class virtually.

Setting Up

There are several ways to join a virtual class, depending on the computer or tablet you use. We prefer our classes to be collaborative, so we encourage you to use a device that has a video camera (most laptops do, as well as tablets and phones).

In the event you are unable to use a webcam, we will provide a phone number so you can dial into the session. Even if you dial in, though, you’ll still want to log into the meeting online so you can view your instructor and their slides.

Here are our recommendations for getting the right software installed on your computer, tablet, or phone:

If You Use:We Recommend:
Windows PCIf you use Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge, you can join right from your web browser and share your audio and video. No other software is required.

If you do not use either of these browsers, please install the Microsoft Teams desktop client.
MacIf you use Google Chrome or Microsoft’s latest Edge browser (which is based on Chrome and runs on Macs), you can join right from your web browser and share your audio and video. No other software is required.

If you do not use either of these browsers, please install the Microsoft Teams desktop client.
iOS or Android device (iPad, iPhone, etc)You’ll need to install the Microsoft Teams desktop client for your device.

Attending Your Class

Shortly before your virtual class is set to take place, we’ll send you a link that you can use to join the class. Please plan to get set up at least 10 minutes before the class is set to start, so that we can avoid any technical hurdles that will delay the start of the session.

If You Have Trouble

We will provide a way for you to contact us so we can help you get set up. You’ll find more information in the email we send before your session.
