HOW TO USE ZOOM

Welcome!  Please follow ALL steps below to prepare for the first day of class.

CLASS ROUTINE

  • Create artwork

  • Watch live demonstrations by instructor

  • Share progress and get feedback (at the comfort level of each student, not required).

  • Ask questions

CLASS CONDUCT

  • Only students paying for the class may attend and be on the screen.  Siblings and friends can share a screen if they are in the same room.  They can also collaborate on a project such as an animation, drawing, comic, etc.

  • Try to find a dedicated space for class (such as a wall for the webcam backdrop) where there will be minimal interference from noise and external visual stimulus.

  • Raise your virtual hand (teacher will show students how to do this through ZOOM) to get the teacher’s attention.  Teacher will mute and unmute students individually based on raised hands.

  • Only use the screen to get help and to communicate ideas.  Any students making distracting gestures and noises will have their screen turned off for 3 minutes.  If the issue persists, their access will be blocked for that day and parents will be contacted via email.

CHOOSE DEVICE

  • Tablets and Smartphones:  Tablets have a larger screen space than phones.  Both have a built in camera and microphone.  Make sure your device is propped up to see the student's face.
