VCLASS: Many of our teachers use Vclass (virtual classrooms) for group learning sessions. A list of Vclasses can be found in the Vclass course. ♦ Before you attend your first scheduled online class, it’s important to check that your audio is working properly.
While in the Vclass classroom, click TOOLS/AUDIO WIZARD, and follow the instructions. If you can’t hear or be heard, it will show up here. You will then need to check your connections to confirm that your speakers and microphone are plugged in and set up correctly. If you have problems accessing Vclass, please contact you online teacher or the help desk at 1.800.567.1235 ext. 2255
