To prepare: Install Zoom: It is not necessary to have your own Zoom account, but we DO recommend installing the Zoom Client App. This can be done ahead of time at this link: We do not recommend choosing “join from browser” as the quality is often lower. Make sure your internet is strong: For best quality, turn off other devices that are using your internet connection. The closer you are to your modem, the stronger the connection will be. Set up your space: Have all the supplies ready to go and near where you will be viewing the webinar. Join early! Join the class up to 5 minutes before the start time to say hi to the instructor and chat with other participants if you wish. This also allows time to work through any technical difficulties. Enjoy the class! Please be sure to be muted and class will start promptly at the scheduled time.
