Class access information
This class will run live each week via Zoom, an online streaming website. Zoom is an online platform which allows you to talk live to your tutor and classmates via a video or audio call. This class is designed to be progressive, with sessions each week following on from the previous week, helping to build your experience over the course of the class. Your booking is for all five sessions. As this class is live, you will need to be available at the time specified to participate.
To access your class you will be sent a link to a Zoom meeting on the day of each session that you have booked. You will also need access to a device with an internet connection and speakers– a computer, laptop, phone or tablet should do the job. If you would like to be able to talk with your tutor via audio your device will also need a microphone. If you would like to speak with your tutor via video your device will also need a camera.
Prior to the start date of your class our team will be in touch via email. We will confirm the email address you have used to create your Zoom account so we can add you to the class.
