How to join online meeting

We use Zoom (https://zoom.us/) to conduct our online classes.  

All students who are taking our online class for the first time, please join the online class 5-10 min before the class starts. We will quickly teach you how to use the online class features.

*Students aged 9 and below require parent/guardian(s) accompaniment beginning of class for all e-learning classes.

System Requirement

Recommendation
Computer (Windows, Mac, Linux).

Supported

If using a iPad, we recommend having two devices.  iPad with Keyboard  to code on + second device (iPad or phone) to watch the video/audio. 

Optional 

Two computers are very convenient.  One computer can be used to code and the student can share the screen the whole class. The other computer can be used to watch  the class video and listen to audio. 

Check your System:

Online class rule

  • If you have a question, “Raise Your Hand” in Zoom (info below).
  • If the teacher asks you to share your code, please share your screen.
  • If the teacher asks you to look at the teacher’s screen, you have to stop sharing screen.  Otherwise you will not be able to see the teacher’s screen.
  • We ask that students share their video (either camera or screen) for the whole class.  This makes it easier for teachers to insure students are working on the projects and it make it easier for teachers to see if students are confused or having problems.  

Students can “Raise Their Hand” in Zoom during the video conference if they have any questions for the tutor. 

Steps to raise your hand:

  1. Open Participants’ view and click Raise Hand.

Note:

  • Windows: You can also use the Alt+Y keyboard shortcut to raise or lower your hand.
  • Mac: You can also use the Option+Y keyboard shortcut to raise or lower your hand.

Students can share their screen in Zoom so that the teachers are able to see their program and guide them. Please visit How to Share Screen for more information.

https://support.zoom.us/hc/articles/201362153-How-Do-I-Share-My-Screen

Note: On Mac OS 10.15 Catalina, you need to allow Zoom access to Screen Recording to share your screen. You can do this in your System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Screen Recording.

For students using Windows, after the tutors have shared their screen, the student’s will only be able to see the tutors screen and the task bar disappears.

In order to go back to seeing the task bar, press the “Esc” key at the top left of the keyboard.
