Step 1: Log in

Once logged in on the classroom portal, the main portal window will display all your upcoming classes in the red square below.

Step 2: Enter the classroom

Click on the green "Enter Classroom" button for the class you want to join. Please note that you can only join a classroom 10 minutes before the intended starting time.

Step 3: Testing computer setup and equipment

A series of tests will be performed before you enter the classroom to ensure an optimal experience for the student. If all the tests were passed, you can click on "Next". If any tests failed, click on “Redo Tests” to resolve the issue.

Note: If your browser asks for permission to use your microphone and camera during the second and third test, please click "Allow" on each pop-up that appears on the top left of the browser window. Example below:

Step 4: Testing communication equipment

Before entering the classroom, you need to select which camera, microphone or speakers / headphones to use. These settings should be correct by default the majority of the time. Follow the steps from one to four to complete the setup.

  1. If you can see yourself in the camera, check the box numbered 1. If not, change the camera setting on the top left.

  2. Talk into your microphone. If the checkbox becomes clickable, the check has passed. Click the checkbox numbered 2 to continue. If not, change the microphone setting in the top middle.

  3. Click the "Test Sound" button (see 3). If you hear a bell sound, click the checkbox numbered 4.

Once all three checks are passed, the student will enter a waiting room until the teacher admits him or her into the classroom. Once the “Enter Class” button turns bright green, click on it to enter the classroom.
