Online Classes

Most of our online classes take place via Zoom. Those who register will be emailed login instructions just before the class begins. There is no need to register for a personal Zoom account.  Instructors are able to lecture and lead discussions, as well as display powerpoint presentations, videos, or any other digital resource. Each student can be an active participant, through the microphone and/or video on your computer or mobile device. There is no requirement or expectation that you use video.

We will continue to add new online classes so please stay tuned to this page!
