All online classes require an internet connection. Class instruction will occur within the virtual classroom on Zoom where you can interact with the instructor and other students through video, audio, and/or chat functions. You can use Zoom on computers, tablets, and phones. Tablets and phones are somewhat limited in what they allow you to do, but you will still be able to see and hear the class.
Online classes offered are taught by professional instructors through Zoom — the video & audio communication platform. We use Zoom because it allows for the interactivity between instructors and students that we believe is important for authentic learning.
This class will take place online. Registered students will receive login instructions.
