  • Activities
    1. Zoom class test (No charge)
      Comments: We will need to keep the following in mind for future classes:
      • A strong wifi connection is very important. I may look into getting a stronger wifi device.
      • Having both students on one device reduces the number of potential technical issues.
      • Students probably should submit their homework prior to any Zoom class so Phil can quickly open the files during Zoom meeting.
      • You students can decide whether to wait until after the COVID 19 season, or to continue with Zoom classes.
