Common Questions for online classes

What to expect from an online class?

The online class is similar to an in-person class. We meet and talk face-to-face in the online class. But we do so on the computer or phone. It is an effective and convenient way of learning mindfulness.We save our time in commuting and save some greenhouse gasses as well.

How do I get the most from an online class?

A stable internet connection and a quiet room are helpful. A large screen is not necessary but will improve your learning experiences. For example, you could connect your phone to a large screen TV wirelessly for a better learning experience.

What hardware do I need?

A computer or a smart phone with the Internet.

If you are using a desktop computer to join the class, you also need a webcam.

What software or apps do I need?

You do not need any special software if you are using a computer to join the class. (Alternatively, you can use Skype, which is a built-in software on most modern computers. )

If you’re using a smart phone to join the class, you need Skype, which is a free app by Microsoft. If the app is missing in your phone, your phone will automatically install the app for you with your permission when you’re about to enter the online classroom for the first time.
