Welcome to the class!
Before we adjourned for spring break, I mentioned that we would likely be using Zoom for monday's class. Most of what I told you is true, except that as you have probably heard, we will be doing "online" classes for the rest of the semester. We will be using zoom, and the zoom info I gave you is correct. While it is OK with me if you attend the class "live," the university recommends that you stay home and zoom in. The zoom info you need is below:
Zoom id: 809303570
The first time you use zoom, the zoom client will be downloaded. This will only happen once, so connecting will be faster after that. Once connected, I recommend that you turn off your video, to save bandwidth. Also, leave your microphone muted, unless you have a question. Keep your fingers crossed - hopefully things will work as normal, but who knows!
Let me know if you have questions. Good luck with your classes!
