Accessing Your Fall Courses

Online classes are hosted via Zoom, an online video conferencing system. Zoom offers free software that provides students many ways to access lectures and classes.

LLI provides a self-help guide to help students prepare for Zoom meetings. Video tutorials are also available online.

When registering for classes, you will receive an automated receipt that includes a direct link to your course. Clicking on this link will guide you through the steps needed to join your online class.

Links are not interchangeable among classes. Each class has a unique meeting ID. Please follow the link provided with your course registration confirmation.


Preparing for a Zoom Meeting

Zoom can be used on laptops, desktops, tablets, smartphones, and even landline telephones, giving students many ways to access lectures, classes and meetings. We encourage the use of web cameras when available as the sense of community presence is enhanced when everyone shows their face.

Installing the desktop version of Zoom will give you the best results and functionality. Students who plan to join Zoom meetings from a mobile device should download the Zoom mobile application.
