Our school will be delivering online instruction using the following tools:
Here are instructions on how to access some of these tools.
Zoom is a videoconferencing tool. In order to use Zoom, make sure that you are using a device with both a microphone and a camera.
To use Zoom, simply click on the link provided for each class, and then when prompted, install Zoom onto your computer. The class should automatically start after Zoom is installed. The second time you use Zoom, you will not need to install.
If the class is not in session, you'll get a message that says "Please wait for the host to start this meeting." The message will disappear and class will automatically begin once the teacher starts the meeting.
Update: Zoom has recently changed to require a password. You can find out what these passwords are by emailing your teachers, or checking your class' OneNote page.
OneNote is a free online notebook provided by Microsoft as part of their Office 365 suite.
To use OneNote, simply click on the link in the email that the teacher sent to you, and this will give you access to the teacher's notebook, where the teacher will record any notes and assignments.
OneNote may be accessed either over the internet, or on your phone where it may be downloaded as an app. If you install the app, OneNote should remember the teacher's notebook the next time you start the app.
Google Classroom is an online classroom experience. Here is how to access your Google Class:
1) Go to your Gmail account.
2) Click on the 9 dots on the top righthand corner of your email browser and scroll down until you see the Google Classroom link.
3) Once you are into the Google classroom dashboard, click the "+" sign on the right to join a new class.
4) Enter the class code in the box that comes up.
Class codes can be found on the page for each respective class.
