Live Virtual (Remote) Class (Romaric Chardonneau) – Setup Instructions

Here are the instructions on how to prepare for our upcoming Live Virtual (Remote) Class. Please take some time to read and prepare the tools below well in advance of the class. Do not leave it until the day of the class.

The Trainer will show you in detail how to use all these tools during the class. However, It would be a good idea to spend some time getting familiar with them in advance if you can.

The tools are free. We recommend you use your own computer (rather than a work computer) if possible to avoid any issues with admin rights/VPNs etc.

Consider the online facilitation and use of these tools as part of the learning experience for the course.

Google Meet

This is the live video tool we will use for the class. Please ensure you have tested your WebCam, Microphone and Speakers with well in advance of the class.

If you are attending with colleagues, each attendee will need to use a separate computer.

The URL for the meeting will be in your joining instructions email.

Mural

Mural is an online Whiteboard tool we use to create and share content together during the class.

Follow the link supplied in your joining instructions email and spend some time exploring the tool in advance of the class. If you have any problems accessing Mural, please use a new email address that has not previously been used with Mural.

We strongly recommend you use the Google Chrome browser when working with Mural to increase stability and speed. If your company security policies prevent access, you will need to get this restriction lifted or use a different network.
