Want to participate in classes as an online student? Consider this your virtual welcome!
The topics for online classes will run in a sequence similar to that of the in-person Foundations classes. Much of the material is identical to that which is covered in Foundations, but some has been adapted to suit the online experience.
As with attending classes in person, the charts used in these online classes will be selected from those of the students enrolled. Priority will be given to the students who enrolled first.
Registration for each online class closes 24 hours prior to the start of the class. Several hours before the class, all participants will be sent an email containing a link to join the meeting. About 20 minutes before the start of the meeting, click on the link to get settled into the online conference room. Vancouver Astrology uses Join.Me as a webinar platform.
Online classes are just one hour in length. Classes are recorded and participants will be given a link to view the recording after each class. If you have to miss a class, you can still watch the recording, making it easy to catch up before the next online session.
Please remember that all class times published are in Pacific Time. Adjust for your time zone as needed.
What’s your preferred device?
- If you are using a computer, simply click on the link in the email, and you will be directed to Join.Me by way of your default browser. Most popular web browsers will work fine, but Google Chrome seems to provide the best experience.
- Also, if you are using a computer, you may be encouraged to download the Join.Me app to your computer and attend meetings through that app. You’ll first have to set up an account with Join.Me. They’ll likely give you a 14-day trial of the Pro account features. Go along with that, but then after the 14 days, unless you are hosting meetings yourself, allow your account to lapse into the free version.
- On your iPhone or iPad, download the Join.Me app. From there, it is super easy. Simply enter the 9-digit meeting code (provided in the email) in the box where it says “Join A Meeting” and you’re in! You do not have to log in or enter a password — that’s just for people hosting a meeting.
- On your Android phone or tablet, get the Join.Me app. Enter the meeting code to be placed into the conference room.
In all cases, having a good broadband connection is important. (Don’t assume that WiFi in a coffee shop will suffice.) Close other apps that you aren’t using, and don’t be downloading a movie at the same time.
Vancouver Astrology is not responsible for any internet challenges on your part. However, should the recording not be suitable due to internet problems and we cannot provide a suitable recording, the class will be repeated. In this case, you will be re-invited at no extra charge.
Please get in touch if you have any questions, or if you want to try out the Join.Me environment before your first class.
The schedule of online classes for Fall 2017 will be published soon! Please check back.
