Due to the growing risks of CoVid 19 infections across the province, ACATCM has chosen to transition from in-person learning to a live virtual classroom setting EFFECTIVE MONDAY MARCH 16 2020.
To help you move smoothly to this new digital classroom, please find the following text tutorial and guidelines.
The ACATCM will be using ZOOM cloud conferencing to create our virtual classroom so all students and instructors will first need to set up an account on their site.
Setting up a personal account on a mobile device (phone or tablet)
Once you arrive on the homepage, the upper right-hand corner will be a blue sign up button, select it
Input your email and follow the prompts to create your account
Once you have created a personal account, you will need to message your professors in your respective classes from an account you regularly use (excluding @shaw.ca email accounts) with your name and an alternate contact method.
Virtual classroom invites will be sent a minimum of 1 day before you are expected to attend.
Your invite email will include:
To join a virtual classroom at the designated time will depend on your selected device
Open the zoom cloud meetings app
Input the meeting ID followed by the password when prompted
If you join before the scheduled start of class you may be added to a waiting room or be unable to access the classroom.
Select or copy and paste the URL given in your invite email
If the first step fails, access your personal account from zoom.us
At the top of the webpage select the icon labeled “JOIN A MEETING”
The next page will prompt you to input your meeting ID and password provided in the invite email
Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time and together we can do our part to protect our fellow Canadians from the dangers of CoVid-19 by helping to “Flatten the Curve”.
